Having already sold over 250,000 records, Lil C-Note has already made his mark on the entertainment industry and isn’t even out of elementary school nor five-feet tall.
The ten-year-old, born Corey Jackson., hails from Jackson, Mississippi and is definitely headed in the right direction to becoming a hip-hop legend. “There are two types of people in this world,” the young rapper and entrepreneur tells CNN in an interview. “There are dreamers. And there are dream chasers. I’m chasing my dreams!”
Having received endorsements from some of the most recognizable names in the industry including Cash Money Records’ CEO Bryan “Birdman” Williams and Atlanta trap Rapper Young thug, Jackson describes himself as a “positive hip-hop” artist, stating that he wants to show the world that “anything is possible”.
Jackson wrote his first rap song at six-years-old about “crayons,” but his love for the rap game came a lot earlier. “At first my dad was doing it. He took me to the studio a few times, and I said, I think I want to do that, it looks pretty cool. But my first song, I was only 4 and it was hard for me to stay on beat. It took me a couple of years to get the hang of it.”
His passion and dedication to his craft have caused world-wide attention to his talent, so much so that Ellen herself asked the budding star to be on her show.
