Will James Akins aka Lud Foe was born on July 15th, 1996, and grew up on the West side of Chicago, Illinois. He was raised by his mother in Section 8 housing. His father was less involved in Lud’s upbringing.
He was hustling on the streets from a young age and people started to refer to him as “Shorty Foe”. That nickname stuck and over time it would evolve into “Lud Foe”.
While attending high school Lud used to involve in several fights with other students. The first time he spent time behind bars happened after he got into a fight in school with another kid. Soon, he was rushed by other teachers and he even punched the principal as well.
At the age of 15, Lud got locked away in Juvenile detention for a year. During that time he developed an interest in music. Around that time he was writing 10 raps a day. After getting out, Lud Foe was on probation but he wasn’t able to live with his mother anymore.
Lud Foe began his rap career by releasing a song titled “187” with the help of producer Bxnkroll|DIR. The music video was uploaded in March 2015 on a YouTube channel called “Viral Scope”. Then in January 2016, he dropped the track “Im Da Man” on Tracy Garner’s YouTube channel.
Lud Foe went on to release three music videos with the channel Elevator including “Coolin With My Shooters” as well as “Cuttin Up”. This was also the first video to credit his producer Kid Wond3r in the title and became a standout success for both artists.
The music video for “Cuttin Up” started hitting bit numbers and quickly amassed 2 million. The song has since climbed to over 39 million views on YouTube and also caught the attention of Lil Durk.
The rapper Lil’s manager called Lud Foe to ask if he could collab on the remix. Lud agreed to have the legendary artist join him on the song. The video was featured on WorldStarHipHop.

After school, Lud Foe’s main focus was selling dope and he was making some handsome money. It was enough to shop regularly at the Gucci store. He was also getting ink, he got a neck tattoo with a large skull and dollar sign.
The tattoo artist then told him that he knew a producer that he should hook up with. Soon after, Lud met with a producer named Kid Wond3r who helped to encourage Lud to start taking his rap more seriously.
In March 2017, Lud Foe found himself in a severe car accident with a semi-trailer truck. He wasn’t wearing a seatbelt and ended up flying out of his rear window. He lost consciousness and woke up in midair, before coming crashing down on the pavement.
