Musical career

London began rapping at the age of sixteen with the group Dem Guyz. The group used to download beats on SoundClick for 99 cents, although most of the beats cost $100 for exclusive rights Template:What. As a way to save money, London drew upon his experience playing piano arrangements in church and began making beats for rappers. With the help of online software he was able to refine his craft. He gained local acclaim when he began producing beats for the Rich Kidz . Soon after, othersTemplate:Who began asking for his compositions. Early on in his career, London would give away his beats for free as a means to build connections and garner more publicity. The first song he produced that received radio play was "Pieon" by Rich Kidz. The success of Pieon motivated London to continue producing. In 2011, he recorded his first of many collaborations with Young Thug, "Curtains." London continued to give his beats away for free before signing his first label deal with Cash Money Records.<ref name="wishes">Turner, David (13 November 2014).
