Coi Leray has been rising the hip-hop ranks since her musical debut in 2017. With a Billboard Hot 100 single “No More Parties,” the charismatic rapper, singer, and songwriter has already cemented her spot in the rap world. Daughter of rapper and mogul Benzino, Coi started making music at 14, dropped out of high school at 16, and was moved out and working a sales job by 17. Music has always been a passion for Leray, but she didn’t begin to seriously pursue it until the success of her 2017 SoundCloud hit “G.A.N.”
In 2018, Coi Leray dropped her first mixtape Every Thing CoZ, displaying her fresh and unapologetic style, which helped propel her to sign with Republic Records. Leray released her second mixtape EC2 in 2019, which included the instantly catchy standout “Huddy.” Leray went on tour with rapper Trippie Redd and the two dated for a few months following the Life’s A Trip Tour. Their breakup spurred the melancholic love song “Leray’’ on A Love Letter to You 4. Leray’s time with Trippie widened her audience. To date, Leray has gained 4.7 million followers on Instagram and 4.6 million on TikTok, no small feat.
Leray showcased her talent and promise as an artist in her 2020 EP, Now or Never, which included features from Gunna, Sevyn Streeter, and Fetty Wap. Leray went on to release her biggest hit to date “No More Parties” including a remix of the track with Lil Durk. She recently starred in the video for TikTok hit “Track Star” by Mooski and has been announced as a member of XXL’s 2021 Freshman Class. Leray has also blessed us with new tracks including “Bout Me,” a feature on Pressa’s “Attachments,” and a new single with Kodak Black. She also connected with Pooh Shiesty for “Big Purr (Prrdd)” and there’s been talk of a debut album coming soon.
