Chicago-based rapper Polo G emerged in 2017, releasing tracks on his YouTube channel and slowly growing a loyal fanbase. By 2018, his videos began garnering millions of views thanks to the release of singles like "Welcome Back," "Neva Cared," and "Finer Things." He was signed later that same year, released his first charting single "Pop Out" alongside Bronx-rapper Lil Tjay, and "Battle Cry," which amassed millions of views on YouTube. Polo G is known for his Chicago-style drill rap sound, involving quick delivery of gritty verses. His style has evolved over time to become more melodic, similar to the sound of Lil Durk or Quando Rondo.
