Who is young rapper Lil Barnacle? Wiki Bio

Lil Barnacle was born in Park Ridge, Chicago, Illinois USA, on 14 August 2003, so his zodiac sign is Leo and he holds American nationality. He is a rapper who started his career at the age of 14, but has managed to keep his real name hidden, while the name on his Instagram account reads ‘Barnie’.

Early life and education

Lil Barnacle was raised in Park Ridge by his father who is a taxi driver, and his mother who is working at a local supermarket.

https://www.instagram.com/p/Bbu_MTdlMBe/

He did not have many friends while attending elementary school, being rather shy and introverted, thus finding comfort in rap music, listening to rappers such as Eminem and Snoop Dogg, and becoming interested in rapping. He wrote his first songs at the age of 12, but these haven’t been published as Lil Barnacle believes them not to be good enough. In 2017 when he enrolled at high school, he began performing and uploading his songs online, while he also began socializing, and started playing sports such as football and volleyball.

Barnacle is currently attending his 11th year of high school – apparently he isn’t planning on enrolling at college after matriculation, but on pursuing his dream of becoming famous worldwide.

Career as a rapper

Barnacle launched his career in 2017 when he uploaded his first song onto his SoundCloud account, but gained recognition only after the release of his “Mosh Pit” single; the song which he sings with P.O.O. and Wasabi rappers, has been listened to over 3.54 million times, while it has been given a ‘heart’ by over 50,000 people.

His second hit entitled “Porn” was released in the same year, a collaboration between him and Lil Limabean, which has attracted over 4.35 million listeners. Most of Barnacle’s songs have titles which are ‘not safe for work’ (NSFW), which is something that makes him stand out among other rappers.

He released his debut extended play (EP) in 2018, called “Barnacle Classics” which features his two hits mentioned above, while he released his second EP entitled “PP EP” in 2019, which features songs such as “Hentai”, “Succ”, and “Crack is Wack”.

Barnacle is also active on YouTube – he launched his channel in 2017, but after having problems with comments and with YouTube management later banning the channel, he launched his new eponymous channel on 18 January 2019, but which has only gathered around 750 subscribers. There are only two songs currently uploaded onto it – “Porn” and “Moshpit”.

Love life and relationships

Lil Barnacle is keeping details of his personal life to himself, and the fact that he hasn’t talked about any girls whom he might have dated has led to rumors circulating the internet about the rapper being gay.

Two of his fans have even stated to have seen Barnacle with another boy in Chicago, but this hasn’t been confirmed or denied by him.

Another rumor has it that the rapper is currently in a relationship with a girl whom he met at his high school in 2018. Allegedly, he dated many girls in 2017 before meeting his present girlfriend, and the two have been together for nearly two years. Barnacle uploaded several pictures with the girl onto his Instagram account, but deleted these after people began commenting negatively and insulting the two.

Hobbies and other interests

Barnacle is a fan of knives (only as a hobby) and has uploaded a picture of his favorite onto his Instagram account. He enjoys uploading random weird pictures, including one in which he is holding two fans with his caption reading ‘Unlike most rappers I actually take pictures with my fans’. Barnacle is a huge lover of animals, and has a pet dog which can be seen featured in a picture he uploaded onto his Instagram account.

He is interested in becoming an actor – his favorite actors and actresses are Tom Cruise, Ken Watanabe and Natalie Portman, while some of his favorite movies include “The Last Samurai”, the “Fast and the Furious” franchise, and “Leon The Professional”. He likes to travel in his spare time and has been all around the US to meet with fellow rappers, while his dream is to visit Austria and Norway in Europe.

Being a rapper in the USA

Barnacle has talked about how being a rapper in the US isn’t easy or safe, especially if one is living in dangerous suburbs full of crime.

He has talked about seeing the gangs in the streets, torturing young boys who don’t want to join them, apparently to discourage them from joining rival gangs. Barnacle had his encounter with a gang in his neighborhood, but has stated that he has managed to stay away from those involved in criminal activities. Although he knows several rappers who are members of gangs, he will try to stay focused on his studies (maybe attending college later) and on his career as a rapper.

Appearance and net worth

Barnacle is 16 years old. He has short brown hair and brown eyes, is 5ft 5ins (1.65m) tall, and weighs around 130lbs (59kgs). As of early 2020, his net worth is already estimated at over $200,000.
