Gradi has been making music for 5 years now, it started when Gradi and his classmate wrote a rap song for his class back in Africa. Growing up Gradi wanted to become as influential as some of his idols 2pac and Michael Jackson, it seemed the only way to do was to create music. Gradi was born in Congo then moved to Kenya at the age of 2 years, his parents were in choirs and uncles played a lot rap music which later spilled into his musical direction and how he would approach tracks. Since moving to Australia Gradi has more to offer musically, after discovering and drawing inspiration from artists like Lil Wayne, Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Stormzy. 2018 has been stamped for Gradi to release his first official single after signing with ALIA Records.
