10K.Caash just wants to have a good time. This much is clear from his demeanor and the energy coursing through his music, in all of its bass-heavy and freewheeling glory. The young Dallas dancer helped popularize a local phenomenon known as The Rollie, a dance that he and his crew came up with in 2015 (albeit receiving little credit).

In 2017, the squad created viral dance The Woah, a mix of arm swaying and locking in place. Yet this time, 10K.Caash's popularity and persistence in claiming the dance made him into a Woah ambassador. Lil Uzi Vert DMed him last year, leading to the two meeting and performing in Dallas. 10K became a rapper himself due to Uzi's urging, eventually signing to Def Jam.

With millions of streams to his name and the recent re-release of his mixtape The Creator (with a Ronny J collab project coming too), the only way is up from there.

Age: 18

Hometown: Dallas

I grew up listening to: "Yung Nation—that's it. I'm from Dallas, that's all we used to listen to."

My style’s been compared to: "No one. You can't compare me. It's too different. I got my own wave, so people been compared to me. It's been plenty of people who done tried to steal my sauce, [like] Famous Dex. If you run off with it, I'm not gonna embarrass you for it. I'ma congratulate you."

My standout records have been: "'Aloha,' 'West Coast Cure,' 'Kerwin Frost Scratch That.' Everything on The Creator was going up. I can make any song, no matter what type. If I dance to the song, it's gon' automatically blow up."

Most people don’t know: "I played football, defensive tackle. I had (college) offers. [I didn't take them] because I didn't finish school."

My most slept-on song: "I haven't made a bad song, so it's no songs that's slept on. I mean 'Aloha' was posted a month ago and its already at 8 million."

I’m going to blow up because: "Honestly, I don't think there's like nobody like me. I just know my way around everything."

I’m going to be the next: "I wanna be me and I wanna be the biggest I can be. No influences or nothing like that. I'm not finna look up to nobody. I'd rather set my own goals and [sur]pass myself."
