Early life and career[edit]

2017: Career beginnings[edit]

$not began his music career in 2016 while in high school, revealing to Jack Angell of Complex that he "was listening to dudes like Xavier Wulf, Bones, Yung Lean, Lil Wayne, and Tyler, the Creator... along with Memphis artists like Shawty Pimp and the influential Memphis-based group Three 6 Mafia". $not expanded more on the topic by stating to interviewers, "That's how I got into this stuff, and things started happening. My friend Wetback Manny was already putting shit on SoundCloud and he introduced me to recording and how to use a microphone. That's when I did it by myself, but I had a USB mic and it was kind of trash. But then Manny got a condenser mic, so I guess I got lucky."[3]
