Lil Mosey’s Bio & Family Life
Lil Mosey was born on 25th January 2002, in Mountlake Terrace, Washington, USA –which makes his nationality American. When aged 2, he moved with his family to Seattle, Washington where he has been raised.
To overview his education, Mosey attended the Mountlake Terrace High School, but dropped out in the 10th grade so as to focus on his musical career.

Even so, recent interviews revealed that his mother was not so happy with his choice of quitting school in order to pursue music.
