Lucas Coly, popularly known as Kid Lucas, is a French-American vine star, social media personality, and rapper. His fame grew with his videos on the famous video-sharing app, Vine, as well as on YouTube.
The entertainer, who raps in both English and French, began his social media performance in 2013, and Lucas increased his fame and importance by uploading comic videos and his rap creations to Vine. To expand his reach, he also launched a YouTube channel, where he now uploads more rap videos. The project proved to be more successful than the results he achieved on Vine. With over one million viewers or subscriptions on his channel, Lucas is known for many YouTube hit videos such as I Just Wanna, Every Every time I Roll Up, My Lil Shawty, Feel My Pain, and Every time I Roll-Up. During his time at Vine, he had about 450,000 followers.
His advantage was that he was fluent in his mother tongue, French and English, which made his style more varied and also helped him to gain a wider fan base. Lucas was a member of a music group, Diamondz alongside Willie Fryson III and Dillyn Troy. Over time he also formed another music group with his Nigerian friend Nonso, known as Lucas & Nonso.
Lucas Coly has turned his rap talent into a more concrete career in the entertainment industry. On June 24, 2016, he performed live at the Arizona Event Center. The talented young man is still pushing for a place in the industry and has made his work available on other platforms such as Last.fm and Sound Cloud.
In 2016 Lucas released a 20-track mixtape entitled Prince of France. The music video for his song I Just Wanna from the said mixtape became one of the most viewed videos on YouTube with well over 4.7 million views. In 2017 he released another mixtape entitled I Keep Pushing Vol 1.
A social media enthusiast and star, Lucas is an avid user of other social networks such as Twitter and Instagram, where he has about 210,000 and 1.5 million followers respectively.
Lucas Coly Short Bio, Age
The American social media rap star was born in France but grew up in Michigan, United States. Another report also claims that the YouTuber was born to a West African father born in Senegal and a French mother. This explains his mixed racial identity. His date of birth is July 8, 1997, and his family moved to Texas when he was eight years old. Later they moved to Detroit. Although he did not do well in school, Lucas graduated from a local high school in Michigan. Soon after, the family moved again to San Francisco.
It is not clear how he relates to his African paternal family, but Lucas remembers visiting his maternal grandparents during the summer.
The two-meter tall man has a younger brother whose name is not known. However, his pictures with his celebrity brother have been seen in social media. Just like everything else about his parental identity and detailed family data, his brother’s name and details are not available to the public.
At a very tender age, Lucas’ interest in comedy and rap music was obvious. He loved rap and was known to collect comic books; it is not surprising that his career was initially characterized by comic sketches. By the time he was 20 years old, the social media sensation who now lives in Las Vegas had made a successful career out of his talent for social media.
As part of his social media business, Lucas Coly reportedly dated the three years older (born October 30, 1994) co-Instagram star Amber H. The two have been together since 2015. Lucas and Amber got to know each other through social media and have become closer than friends.
Amber is a fashion and make-up blogger. The couple revealed their relationship with a YouTube video. Afterward, they continued to showcase their relationship and their cozy moments together in social media. Amber, who had removed some personal pictures of Lucas, said they were still together and had only acted on professional advice to put an end to rumors of a breakup. Despite the criticism of Amber’s age and her frequent presence in Lucas’ professional life, the couple insists on remaining inseparable.
