Compound: The Los Angeles Rapper Who Burst Into the Scene in 2020 and Is Set for a Mainstream Breakout

LA rapper Compound is set for an illustrious 2021.

Life on the music industry’s business side provided Los Angeles music manager Compound a variety of new doors he never thought would be presented to him. With a foot in the door to the music industry, the young music mogul has turned to the artist side of the music world has to find great success over the past few years. With the release of his most recent EP, Cooking Class, a collaborative project with producer DJ Pain 1, Compound is proving he has what it takes to domineer praise and attention on both sides of the industry.

“I was always involved with music one way or another—both from the creative perspective and business side,” Compound shares. Born in Madison, Wisconsin, the rising hip-hop artist found a passion for music at an early age. From his youth, Compound had his eyes set on a music career. However, these dreams were put on hold when he found himself incarcerated in federal prison as a young adult. The hardest part of his time in prison, Compound shares, was the loss of his father, who passed away while Compound was serving his sentence. Determined to pursue the dreams of his youth and make his late father proud, Compound relocated to Los Angeles and began working as a talent developer and manager.

Quickly finding success as a businessman in the music world, the Madison native formed strong personal and business connections with some of the biggest names in music. Meek Mill, The Game, and DJ Mustard are just a few of the names that Compound was rubbing elbows with on a regular basis. “I’m always working. I got to push. The grind doesn’t stop.” Even though he saw great success as a manager to this day, Compound began longing for more musical expression around two years ago. Thus, he began taking steps towards the goal of becoming a successful recording artist.

Compound’s career as an artist faced controversy this year, along with the rest of the world, amidst the gloom of a global pandemic. Finding a way to forge a path in this struggling time, Compound continued to record tracks for his Cooking Class project, and upon its release this year, the LA rapper found his groove. The hit track off of the project entitled, LowKey, began to find radio play throughout Los Angeles and was in the regular rotation on 93.1 Jamz. As the song began to gain traction, record labels and distributors began to notice the rising artists.

While he is still independent, Compound is not lacking in popularity and is seemingly on the verge of a mainstream breakthrough. Along with the success of Cooking Class, Compound has also found himself recording tracks with some of rap’s biggest names, including Bronx legend Jim James. With a successful 2020 under his belt, Compound is prepping himself for an even bigger year to follow. A project that is currently unnamed is supposed to be released at the start of 2021, and its lead single 4 HRSis set for release on December 22, 2020, along with its subsequent video. If he continues on his hot streak, Compound is about to separate himself from his peers and show the hip-hop world that he is here to stay.
