A rich, white, drill rapper from the Upper East Side who goes by the name of Lil Mabu has a charting hit song with “Mathematical Disrespect” single.
18-year-old drill rapper from New York City whose rap style is reminiscent of Kay Flock or maybe even 6ix9ine. Unlike the majority of his New York drill counterparts, Mabu doesn’t hail from Brooklyn or the Bronx. Instead, Lil Mabu is from the Upper East Side, grew up in a wealthy family, and attended an elite private school.
The track “Mathematical Disrespect”— which sees Mabu counting “one thot, two thot, three thot, four” which is an obvious reference to Eminem‘s “8 Mile” battle against Papa Doc, and reciting Pi — has gotten over 8 million streams on YouTube and over 13 million streams on Spotify. Key to the track’s rise, expectedly, is its popularity on TikTok. On the track, he tells the NYPD that all his raps are “cap,” references Wordle, and explains one of his lyrics in the middle of the song.
Lil Mabu also uploaded a short video on his YouTube channel with the title: “White boy does not miss. New Eminem.” He has also released the music video which has over 3 million views in just two days. You can watch the short below:
