The Kid Laroi splits with his American management AGAIN: Aussie rap sensation leaves his manager

Aussie rap sensation The Kid Laroi has split with his American manager, Adam Leber, Billboard reports.

A source told the publication that Leber ‘resigned amicably’ from his role and had a good relationship with Laroi, but struggled working with Laroi’s internal team. 

Laroi and Leber had been working together under his company called Rebel since last September.

Before that, Laroi had been working with Scooter Braun and his management company SB Projects. 

The Kid Laroi, whose real is Charlton Howard, is one of music’s biggest acts. 

Since bursting onto the international music scene in 2019 thanks to an endorsement from late rap icon Juice Wrld, the Indigenous teenager has become one of Australia’s most successful artists.

The 18-year-old scooped three prizes at the APRA music awards in Melbourne this week including Song of the Year, for Stay, the world-wide hit he co-wrote with Justin Bieber. 

Last week, he teased a collaboration with Post Malone. 

‘You guys want 2 hear me & Posty sing?’ the 18-year-old asked on Instagram. 

But just a few years ago, life looked rather different for Laroi.

Born in Waterloo, Sydney, Laroi grew up in relative poverty, spending his formative years in a housing commission block and couch surfing with his mother.

He began rapping at the age of 13, predominantly as an outlet to process 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 international rap sensation Juice Wrld’s labelmate at Grade A Productions in 2019.

The duo quickly became close, with Laroi even referring to Juice as his ‘big brother’ after being selected to support him on the Sydney and Melbourne legs of his Australian tour in November 2019.

Fate took a cruel turn and just weeks later on December 8, Juice Wrld died at the age of 21, after suffering a reported seizure at Chicago Midway International Airport.

Prior to his death, Juice recorded a verse for GO, the lead single on Laroi’s debut mixtape, knowing full well it would rocket the teen to fame overnight.

It did just that upon its release in June 2020, and in the blink of an eye the talented underdog from Waterloo had a single on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 – topping megastar Justin Bieber that he’s been compared to – a feat many artists can only ever dream of achieving.

He went on to become the youngest Australian to have a number one album on the ARIA charts with the release of F*ck Love (Savage) in July 2020.

The record settled at number three in the U.S.

The next month, Laroi secured a record deal with Sony Music and relocated from Sydney to Los Angeles with his family.
