LIL PHAG is the character and rap persona of controversial award-winning comedian and internet personality, Elijah Daniel.

Elijah, best known for his massive internet following and headline capturing viral stunts such as becoming the mayor of Hell, Michigan and getting impeached same-day after banning all heterosexuals from entering the town, and most recently his second best-selling book “the Bible…But Gayer,” in which he rewrote the Holy Bible.

With hundreds of millions of impressions per month, Elijah has teamed up with Dr. Woke, a character of chart-topping producer Sam F. Their first single ‘Elton John (featuring Hoodie Allen)’ rose to the top of iTunes hip-hop charts, and still boasts several million streams and views, despite the video being removed from YouTube multiple times after a dispute with TMZ.

His latest singles include ‘Clout 9’ featuring actress Bella Thorne & YouTube star Tana Mongeau, with a music video directed by Bella herself.

And most recently ‘Rick and Morty’, featuring sugartrap rapper Rico Nasty.

We reached out to interview the self-proclaimed “rap icon and king of the gays,” LIL PHAG:

What city do you rep?

Detroit. I was born and raised in Detroit, then moved around Michigan a lot when I was a teenager. I live in LA now, and I lived in Cleveland for a few years too. I liked Cleveland a lot, but Detroit is home.

What is unique about you and your music?

I’m gay as f***.

What inspired your insane Rick and Morty music video?

I’ve always been a huge fan of that art style, and I wanted a video that would really make people go “what the f***?” I found an artist named Pastelae on instagram doing the exact style in such a weird and unique way and I was immediately like YES, PERFECT. We chatted a bit, and pastelae loved the idea so they sent over all the files and I stayed up all night and edited it myself so it would come out exactly how I wanted it.

What shaped your music?

I grew up as a huge fan of rap music, and growing up being gay was still risqué, there wasn’t any real gay hip-hop artists. More recently a lot of talented LGBT have been emerging, but it still feels very underground. I’ve always been a big fan of people like Big Freedia and Le1f, who are so open with their music. I wanted to create an obnoxious mainstream rap persona that embraces and encourages gay as f*** lyrics. I feel like comedy and satire are important in breaking down barriers.

When did you realize you were going to make music professionally?

Music has always been a huge part of my life. I always wanted to be a producer, so when I was 15 I got my first setup and starting working with FL Studio 8. My dad is a pastor so I was only allowed to make beats for Christian rappers, haha. I made a lot of terrible beats, but I ended up getting pretty good. I ghost-produced under a different producer name so my dad wouldn’t find out, and ended up producing songs for Soulja Boy and Busta Rhymes. Neither of them made it out, but that was still dope as f*** for me as a 16 year old.

What type of music do you listen to?

I like everything, but mostly listen to rap or punk. Sometimes some slow pop/r&b if I’m on some emo s***, really just depends. A few artists I’m listening to a lot right now are Trippie Redd, Jeremy Zucker, Rae Stremmurd, Shane Stokes, Lil Aaron, Drako, Lauv, Tory Lanez, Lil Xan, Post Malone, Rich The Kid.

Who, to you, is the most undervalued music artist?

Swae Lee. I’ve been following Rae Stremmurd for a very long time, and I feel like everyone is just now finally starting to realize how talented they are and that makes me so happy.

How do you prepare for your performances?

I really don’t, usually just do a shot

What ignites your (song) writing flow?

Blunts and a quarter adderall. Lmao, but also the beat is everything. If I feel a beat and can come up with a flow the ideas generally just start coming in. Woke and I are a really good song writing team, and we have a lot of fun doing it. We’ve been doing a lot of writing and studio sessions with other artists.

What do you do when you don’t do music (creative or otherwise) and that you are passionate about?

Comedy and writing, when I’m not doing music s*** I’m generally making videos, I’ve been working a lot on my newest book and writing a pilot.

Success to you is…

Being happy and being able to make a living doing what you love.

What do you wish you were told when you first started rapping that you think would help artists starting out?

Don’t think too much, just f****** make what you want..

Do you have an album coming out?

I doooooooo, it’s coming very soon. We’re finishing up the last of the singles and finishing up some features. I would expect to hear it sometime in late April.
