He made history as the youngest solo artist to top the Australian album charts.

He teamed his ensemble with a white T-shirt and black Converse sneakers.
Laroi left his long locks out and couldn’t wipe the smile off his face as he posed on the red carpet after arriving to the event.
Born in Waterloo, Sydney, Laroi grew up in relative poverty, spending his formative years in a housing commission block and couch surfing with his mother.
He began rapping at the age of 13, predominantly as an outlet to process his family struggles and the death of his uncle two years earlier.

He achieved modest success as a finalist in Australian radio station Triple J’s Unearthed High competition, but his real breakthrough came when he was signed as international rap sensation Juice Wrld’s labelmate at Grade A Productions in 2019.
The duo quickly became close, with Laroi even referring to Juice Wrld as his ‘big brother’ after being selected to support him on the Sydney and Melbourne legs of his Australian tour in November 2019.
Fate took a cruel turn and just weeks later on December 8, Juice Wrld died at the age of 21, after suffering a reported seizure at Chicago Midway International Airport.

Prior to his death, Juice Wrld recorded a verse for GO, the lead single on Laroi’s debut mixtape, knowing full well it would rocket the teen to fame overnight.
It did just that upon its release in June 2020, and in the blink of an eye the talented underdog from Waterloo had a single on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 – topping megastar Justin Bieber that he’s been compared to – a feat many artists can only ever dream of achieving.
He went on to become the youngest Australian to have a number one album on the ARIA charts with the release of F*ck Love (Savage) in July 2020.
