Lil Gnar touring with Germ behind their collab ‘Big Bad Gnar Shit’ EP

Lil Gnar

Where did the nickname “Lil Gnar” come from?

From skating. That’s where the brand name comes from too! Gnarcotic. Just through skating, kind of a life mantra just through skating. Gnarly is kind of a sick word. It’s like beat street. To me it means an addiction to the streets because like skating is the most addicting drug. It’s more addictive than drugs to me. Because I’ve done it, damn near every drug but that shit is whatever you know. But like skating, I’ve been doing that shit for like eight years. I’ve torn ligaments, broken bones, you know? And I still go back for more. [High Snobriety]

Skater-turned-rapper Lil Gnar was focused on his skate/fashion brand GNARCOTIC before he was focused on a music career, but then his song “Ride Wit Da Fye” started taking off, and Lil Gnar has since been featured on songs with Rico Nasty, Lil Skies, Joji, and more. “Ride Wit Da Fye” ended up on his 2018 collab EP with Germ, Big Bad Gnar Shit, which you can stream below.

Lil Gnar and Germ are also touring together, including a show at NYC’s SOB’s on October 16 with Warhol.SS and YGMarley (tickets). All dates are listed below.
