- Kid Lucas was present on various social media platforms before he got famous on Vine. However, once he shifted to the looping video sharing platform, he earned recognition due to the fact that he can rap in both English and French. His first video on Vine was posted on July 9, 2013. He uploaded couple more videos throughout the year, but became more regular on the platform during mid 2014. He mostly posted short funny videos and raps which made him very popular. While he had his YouTube account since July 2011, he posted his first music video on YouTube on August 1, 2013. He continued to upload videos on YouTube occasionally, but started using the platform more frequently after Vine shut down in January 2017. He created music as part of the group Diamondz, as well as independently, after the group broke up. Post his Vine fame, his Instagram profile blew up as he reached over 1 million followers within a very short period of time. He currently has over 1.4 million followers on his Instagram account, 210k on Twitter, 171k on YouTube and 112k on SoundCloud.Recommended Lists:
