About Kari Faux
Kari Johnson grew up in Little Rock, AR and adopted the “Faux” moniker after realizing she could turn people’s misperceptions into a positive. In a city where prominent rap figures have been scarce, Kari stood out with her ingenuity, and ability to write, rap, and produce her own material. Through various mixtapes, including her standout “Laugh Now, Die Later,” she established a following in Little Rock and Atlanta, garnering the attention of Wiz Khalifa, Janelle Monae, and Childish Gambino.
The latter worked with Faux on a remix of her bass heavy, “No Small Talk”, which he included on his Stone Mountain mixtape and eventually signed Kari to a deal with Wolf & Rothstein (a business venture with Mick Management). Faux, a Southern rapper known for her in-the-pocket flow and smooth delivery, was transplanted to Los Angeles. She spent much of 2015 finding herself (hence the irony of album title about feeling “lost”) and will release Lost En Los Angeles on April 8, 2016 Wolf & Rothstein (distributed by ADA).
