Who is CONCRETE'S Karrahbooo?
LIL YACHTY'S FIRST FEMALE SIGNEE.
"We can run the ones or you can box the 40" is a lyric taken straight out of the song "Box the 40" which is one of three releases solo tracks underground artist Karrahbooo has on streaming services. It seems like Karrabooo has come out of nowhere, apart of Yachty's CONCRETE team, it seems like Yachty has been on an incredible run this year, with his album and the numerous singles he has released. A few weeks ago Yatchy and his concrete crew took to the platform ON THE RADAR and performed a collective freestyle which sees karrahbooo as the clear standout. Her freestyle, which was taken from her single "Box The 40" has sparked a spike in her popularity which has many people wondering who and where she came from.
Karahabooo, whose real name is Karrah Schuster, hasn't been rapping for a long time. She's barely begun her journey as a hip hop artist. Her introduction to the idea of rapping started during her time as Yachty's assistant and watching him do voice-over work for a movie. As she has stated on Lil Yachty's "A Safe Space" podcast and in her personal interviews, she was inspired to rap because of Yatchy's achieving career. "He had to go do voiceovers for this movie and I was like he has been in hella movies because he is a rapper and that's when I decided to be a rapper because it was my way to be an actress" So Yatchy proceeded to fire her from his assistant position then recorded her song "Money Counter"
Karrahbooo's sounds is essentially in line with this new wave Yatchy and his team have been on lately. She is currently working on building her discography, even though nothing concrete has been announced. *pun intended*
