Laroi put his long locks aside and couldn’t wipe the smile off his face as he posed on the red carpet after arriving at the event.
Born in Waterloo, Sydney, Laroi grew up in relative poverty, spending his formative years in a housing commission building and couch surfing with his mother.
He started rapping at the age of 13, primarily as an outlet to deal with his family struggles and the death of his uncle two years earlier.

He achieved modest success as a finalist in Australian radio station Triple J’s Unearthed High competition, but his real breakthrough came when he was signed as a label mate to international rap sensation Juice Wrld at Grade A Productions in 2019.
The duo quickly became close, with Laroi even calling Juice Wrld a “big brother” after being selected to support him during the Sydney and Melbourne stages of his Australian tour in November 2019.
Fate took a cruel turn and a few weeks later, on December 8, Juice Wrld passed away at the age of 21, after suffering a seizure at Chicago Midway International Airport.

Before his death, Juice Wrld recorded a verse for GO, the lead single from Laroi’s first mixtape, knowing full well it would propel the teenager to overnight glory.
That’s exactly what he did when it was released in June 2020, and in the blink of an eye, the talented underdog from Waterloo had a single on the US Billboard Hot 100 – topping megastar Justin Bieber at which it has been compared to – a feat that many artists may never dream of achieving.
He became the youngest Australian to have a number one album on the ARIA charts with the release of F * ck Love (Savage) in July 2020.
