Larry’s profile remains active on 1017’s website. The bio says that Larry began in music after graduating high school. 

The rapper is quoted on the website as describing her style as ‘Trap-n-Blues.’

‘Other people can relate to the things I say. I might help somebody through any situation, they can listen to me and find peace,’ she said. 

Larry’s YouTube page has generated four million views in total, and she has around 660,000 monthly streams on Spotify. 

In 2020, Larry appeared on the mixtape Gucci Mane Presents: So Icy Summer.

In 2023, Larry was profiled by the Dallas Observer. She told the website about her beginnings in music in the church choir and being a cheerleader in high school. After graduation, she worked doing hair and nails before going into hip-hop.

‘I feel like music was always something that was easy for me. I felt like I was musically inclined, always. It was something that I thought should probably put more time and effort into, because it was natural, you know, instead of trying to force a talent,’ she said.

At that time, Larry was working with producer J White who previously crafted hits for Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion and Gucci Mane. 

Larry also spoke of her love of the growing number of female artists in the realm of hip-hop. 

‘It’s looking hopeful for more and more women to just continue to blow up. I feel like it was a male-dominated sport, but now it’s becoming more feminine-dominated. I love that for the girls,’ she said.
