Lil Esco is an American rapper, influencer, YouTuber, and musician who became a social media sensation after a video content he put out on Twitter went viral and since then, he has continued to gather more fans and fame that his Instagram account has grown to over one million followers.
Through social media influence, and other of his investment ventures, Lil Esco has been able to amass a net worth of $300,000 for himself. Considering that he is still very young and has not been in the entertainment industry for so long. We cannot help but expect more from his stables.
Why Was Lil Esco Shot?
Sometime around April 2021, Lil Esco made headlines for a rather sad reason. It was rumored that he was shot at a robbery scene and got hospitalized. His friends shared a picture of him lying in a hospital bed and praised him for being so strong.
At the time the news about the incident came to light, his family was yet to release an official statement and in no time false rumors started spreading. Social media users began announcing that he was shot in a robbery scene and had died.
In a bid to clear the air, his father released an official statement where he confirmed that his son was involved in an incident, but was now stable. His father also thanked everyone who has been praying for his son and requested that they keep praying.
On the 8th of April 2021, Lil Esco shared a picture of himself on a hospital bed, and in the caption, he announced that he could now walk as he also thanked everyone for their prayers. Thankfully, he has been able to overcome those trying times and is now fine.
This incident occurred fees weeks to his 16th birthday and may account for why he did not celebrate as he did on his 15th birthday.

Lil Esco Is Also A Youtuber
Lil Esco has a YouTube channel dubbed ‘Lil Esco 28’ where he shares the video and audio versions of his songs to his over 1000 subscribers. However, from the look of things, his YouTube channel is not monetized as none of his videos have ads on them.
