Issa Thompson is a rapper and singer-songwriter from the United States. His mixtapes “King Issa” and “Back to the Future” have helped him acquire popularity. Thompson, a native of Washington, D.C., was raised in a musical household. Both of his parents are musicians, and he was profoundly influenced by them. With his family, he moved to Atlanta, Georgia at an early age. At the age of eight, he began assisting his father in writing his lyrics, and by the time he was thirteen, he was composing his own music. Issa was discovered by the production company Crown World Ent., which assisted him in signing a contract with Jive Records. Since then, he has released a number of mixtapes, including ‘This Winter’ and ‘Best Kept Secrets,’ as well as the extended play ‘Blue Moon.’ Issa has amassed 106 thousand, 146 thousand, and 51 thousand followers on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, respectively, in addition to 52 thousand YouTube subscribers. In addition to a successful music career, Issa has also achieved considerable entrepreneurial success. He has established his own production company, record label, and apparel store under the names Wolfpack Entertainment and Fresh Young Boys, respectively.
Ascend to Fame
Issa and his family relocated to Atlanta, Georgia when he was a child. Growing up in one of America’s most historically and culturally significant cities only fueled Issa’s love for music. He worked as a kid model and was represented by Wilhelmina.
He showed his prodigious musical abilities at a young age. It wowed his father, who requested him to assist him in writing his lyrics. A few years later, at the age of 13, he began writing for himself. Crown World Entertainment, a production label, was the first to discover Issa.
They then introduced him to Wayne Williams, Jive Records’ executive vice president of A&R at the time. Williams had seen a recording of him before. He instructed him to act in front of all of Jive’s A&Rs and VPs. Issa signed a contract with the label a few weeks afterward. He contracted with RCA Records when he was 15 years old.
In 2011, Issa collaborated with DJ Holiday to release ‘Back to the Future,’ a mixtape in which he attempted to bridge the gap between the new crop of rappers and their esteemed forefathers. A year later, he released ‘King Issa,’ another collaboration with DJ Holiday.
He published his third and fourth mixtapes, ‘This Summer’ and ‘Best Kept Secrets,’ in 2015. He had a very active year in 2016. He dropped his first EP, ‘Blue Moon,’ a mixtape called ‘This Winter,’ and the second installment of ‘Sample Sundays.’ (the first installment was released sometime in the early 2010s).
Issa’s Private Life
Issa was born into a musical household on September 22, 1994, in Washington, D.C. He was inspired by his father and grandpa, both of whom are well-known musicians in their own right. Issa has claimed that without their influence, he would not have become a musician. Furthermore, he is very close to his mother and created a video for her called ‘Dear Momma,’ which he uploaded on Mother’s Day.
In July 2012, Issa, then 17, went to Twitter to declare that he had become the proud father of a baby girl named Isa. While he was chastised for becoming a father at such a young age, he shrugged it off, claiming that it was none of his concern. “My child is a blessing,” he continued, “and that’s the bottom line.”
