Many are born with a charismatic personality. Many are born with a captivating talent. But few exude an innate magnetism so irresistible to the masses without several years – or even decades – or cultivating their act. Rap sensation, Lil P’nut embodies such qualities and does it all before the age of ten.
Lil P’nut, born Benjamin Flores Jr., went from performing in local Memphis, TN venues for anyone that would listen to performing on the Ellen DeGeneres Show in front of millions, in just a few years.
Merely out of his formidable years, Lil P’nut has built a resume that is quite impressive. One can only imagine his potential. His face has been everywhere. From interviews with several Memphis news outlets and being featured on various hip hop sites to over 100 live performances – including performing with Soulja Boy at a sold out Summer Jam concert in Memphis. He has also been features in several hip hop music videos, most recently Yo Gotti’s “Look in the Mirror” video. All of which set the stage for his national debut with Ellen – where he completely won over millions of viewers with his southern hospitality and charm, not to mention his talent as a rapper.
Although rapping is what gained his recognition, if you think acting is out of the question – think again. Lil P’nut has already appeared in several commercials and has currently landed a role in the Warner Bros film Happy Feet 2 – the follow up to the 2006 computer animated family-film, and Academy Award winning, Happy Feet.
Lil P’nut is an all around star! He is talented and gifted and most importantly, credits God with it all. He is as humble as a child, yet courageous and as brave as a lion. It is understood that many may question his talent and wonder if he really possesses the “total package” at such a young age, however, the undeniable and irrefutable truth is that Lil P’nut is headed for success and nothing is stopping him. He has a talent and he is ready to share it with the world!
