Rapper/producer Lil Unfufu (born Gregory I. Pulliam) grew up in Jacksonville, Florida. Listening to all types of music and it shows in his body of work. He began rapping in the summer of 1991 when he entered his boys & girl club annual talent show (then rapping as Kid Duce). In 1993 Lil Unfufu won first prize at the same talent show winning a chance to be on BET'S teen summit, but a drug arrest and conviction sidelined his opportunity. However, he continued to write and rap in juvenile detention eventually, after meeting local producer Dru, he decided to do a 3 song demo that never made it out of the studio because he was arrested and sentenced again for drug procession.
Upon his release in 1997 he released his first single entitled Thug T.K.O. Later connecting with childhood friend and producer/rapper B.A. Barakas (Tavaris Thomas) the two joined forces and started their own independent label (BANG'EM ENTERTAINMENT) in 1997, releasing 2 projects in one year "Bang'em Where We Hang'em the Compilation" and "Murderer" his debut album, then rapping as Mr. Murder. The two albums did so well locally that their Bang'em Entertainment imprint landed an independent distribution deal through bankrupt distributor Southwest in 2002, to be distributed regionally.
After the release of the second compilation (Bang'em Where We Hang'em And Slang'em Millennium Style) in 2003 Lil Unfufu begin to focus more on his solo career, collaborating with Cash Money Records; then, hit maker Juvenile and his UTP records posse. By 2004 Lil Unfufu had performed and worked with some of the best major artists in the industry, such as Trill Entertainment's Lil Boosie and Webbie. Unfortunately in November of 2004 Unfufu was arrested and sentenced to 25 years in prison where he dropped the Lil in his name but thankfully he only had to serve 7 years.
Since his release he has been working harder than ever releasing his first mixtape “Still I Bang”, third single “Smoke One Drank One”feat. Lil Boosie, a book entitled “Scandalous”, and a song a day via the internet. Also in 2012 he has finished his RNR mixtape hosted by Bigga Rankin.
