SSGKobe is taking off. The teenage rapper from a tiny town in Louisiana is reaching new audiences every day with undeniable melodies, creative music videos, and a real connection with his supporters. He’s already collaborated with Cole Bennett and BROCKHAMPTON, performed at festivals, and racked up millions of streams, but as Kobe explains in this episode of Making It, it wasn’t long ago that kids in his own high school didn’t support his music. Now, things have changed, and nothing can stop SSGKobe’s ascent.

This is the final episode of the third season of our video show Making It, produced in partnership with In The Know. Previous guests have included Rico Nasty, Kenny Mason, UMI, Jelani Aryeh, EARTHGANG, Omar Apollo, and many more. This season we’ve featured an incredible collection of artists from across genres and sounds—catch up on episodes with Deb Never, AJRadico, Fousheé, Deem Spencer, MICHELLE, and Audrey Nuna here.
