KTLYN was born on March 2nd, 1997, in the city of San Diego, California. She just started blowing up last year, she hasn’t had all that much time to share the ins and outs of her entire life story.
KTLYN started rapping at just 10 years old and thanks to her parents, she grew up in classic rock. Her mother had a heavy Motown blues influence. But it wouldn’t be until watching what KTLYN considers to be the seminal film, “You Got Served” that she realized her greatest ambition was to become a rapper.
After getting hooked on the soundtrack of that film, KTLYN memorized the dance choreography to every big number from there. She graduated to listen to the hip-hop artists like Eminem.
To pursue her music career, she moved from San Diego to Los Angeles. Around that time she was also studying at UCLA from where she graduated with a degree in psychology.
While living in LA she met the rapper “Too Short” through a mutual friend. This rapper challenged her to rap for him over top of all things EDM tracks. KTLYN impressed Too Short enough for him to offer her the opportunity to record in a professional studio for the first time in her life.
KTLYN began her rise on social media by creating her official TikTok account in July 2020. One of the first things she ever posted was a freestyle rap of her creation. But it was her duets with the TikTok producer Kato that started bringing in some views.
Slowly but surely, KTLYN would create a bigger digital footprint by adding her verses over top of some world-famous tracks. These songs are including, Peaches by Justin Bieber, as well as her versions of Meghan Thee Stallion and Cardi B.
Over the past couple of years, KTLYN has released the covers of popular songs like ‘Bussit, ‘Best Friend, ‘Cry Baby, ‘What’s Next, and many more. It was her remixes of Bussit and Best Friend that helped her reach her first million followers on TikTok.
KTLYN’s breakthrough moment arrived in February 2022. That’s when the rapper Russ took the TikTok to find a potential collaborator for the remix of his hit song, “Handsomer.” Shortly thereafter she tossed into the ring with a purifier remix.
KTLYN uploaded the remix version of “Handsomer” and it immediately went viral, earning over 20 million views just in one month. Russ rewarded her hard work by contacting her on her birthday and then released her version of Handsomer as his official remix a few days later.
When the remix was released, it quickly became a success by earning enough streams on Spotify to debut at #39 on the daily US Spotify chart on March 9th. The original and the remix version of “Handsomer” had a combined play count of over 600k listens in just 24 hours.
Russ eventually signed KTLYN to DIEMON Records, making her the second signee to the label he co-founded. They teamed up to release the extended version of “Handsomer” with two brand new verses in April 2022.
Around that time it was also announced that KTLYN would be hitting the tour alongside Russ and other performing artists like Bia. By the end of April, she was officially on tour and she has since shared some of her live performances over on TikTok.
