London made his ascent in the music industry in the early 2010s, pulling from hip-hop, soul, pop, and punk to craft his genre-blending sound. The rapper built close collaborative relationships with his peers, hopping on tracks with Azealia Banks, Octavian, Ellie Goulding, and more.
In 2020, London released his third studio album Bebey, a self-released record that recruited features from Tame Impala, Lil Yachty, Raekwon, Giggs, Ariel Pink, and more. The fully-independent project found a hit in the Kevin Parker-assisted “Only You,” marking the most successful release of his career thus far.
