Warhol.ss is a young, up-and-coming rap artist. He started his rap career during his final year of high school while in Atlanta, but currently resides in Chicago. He was determined to start taking raps more seriously after being inspired groups like Pro Era and Beast Coast.
While growing up, Warhol was heavily inspired by art. He and his grandfather are both painters, and his mother is a fashion designer. At the age of 10 Warhol.ss moved to Minneapolis from Chicago to stay with his father. Despite Basquiat being his favorite artist, Warhol.ss chose to base his name off of Andy Warhol, due to his belief that no one was ever able to compartmentalize Andy, and because he was able to create many timeless pieces.
The “ss” portion of Warhol’s name has a dual meaning of “So Shitty,” as well as an active representation for his love of cars. So Shitty came about after splitting up with his previous group, Locals, when he was younger.
