NC artist, Lil C. Corleone is seeing his hard work pay off
Christopher LeMarc Peterson (Born February 3, 1991), better known by his stage name Lil’ C. Corleone, is an upcoming American rapper, singer, songwriter, and entrepreneur from Smithfield, North Carolina. Coming from humble beginnings and being a hard worker, the North Carolina spitter is ready to show why he’s next.
Coming from a smaller market like Smithfield, North Carolina has its hurdles. Of course, Lil’ C. Corleone didn’t let being from a small town stop him, as he stayed on his grind. From passing out CDs to even constantly uploading tracks to Myspace to even a short group stint, of all things he made sure he stayed consistent. No matter how big he gets he will always rep Smithfield to the fullest. Growing up in Smithfield, Corleone loved to hang out and eat at “Cricket's Grill” and “Crazy Taco” along with playing video games and basketball with his homies which kept him out of trouble while still pursuing his music dreams.
In 2011 Lil’ C. Corleone and close friend Grizzola Millian (earlier known as Spaz Grizzly) entered the Fast Track artist mentoring program founded by Krayzie Bone of Bone Thugs N Harmony. The program was created to scout new artists for Krayzie Bone’s record label “The Life Entertainment”. Fulfilling all of the requirements of the program, Lil’ C. Corleone and Grizzola Millian were selected to sign an artist deal with The Life Entertainment and record two singles with Krayzie Bone. Although the deal never came to fruition, Lil’ C. Corleone and Grizzola Millian were still able to feature on Krayzie Bone’s album “The Fixtape Vol. 4: Under The Influence”, on Track #14 “Ready 2 Go”.
Lil’ C. Corleone has new music on the way and his past releases include “Work in Progress” in 2011 to “So Far Faded” in 2015 and his album “It’s Different This Time” in 2018 all released under his independent label Bad Dawg Productions. C is becoming a sensation online as one of his freestyles racked up over a million views on Facebook. And His latest single, Product is already making waves on social media as it garners the attention of many rap fans.
