Life and careerEdit
1999-2010: Early yearsEdit
Lil' Rhain was born Rhain Cassidy Radford-Burns on January 27, 1999 in Neath, Port Talbot, Wales, the fourth child of Lisa Jayne Radford and Darren John Burns. The family moved to Australia when Radford-Burns was seven weeks old.
Radford-Burns was raised with his two older siblings for two years, only to be introduced to a new family member in 2001. By 2006, Radford-Burns had gained three younger siblings.
Radford-Burns became interested in rap after his oldest brother and sister introduced him to rap artist Eminem. After listening to many of Eminem's songs, Radford-Burns began rapping himself.
2011: Beginning of careerEdit
In early 2011, Radford-Burns had created a new rap name - Dune. Later realising that he did not enjoy having that name, he quickly changed it to Smartie. Radford-Burns kept that title, only to finally change it to Lil' Rhain, which he then kept.
Radford-Burns created many songs in 2011, only to scrap most of them. His first single, Superman, was released in October 2011 and, to much surprise of the listeners, included no swearing. In September 2011, Radford-Burns wrote the single Worth it All, only to release it later that year along with his first EP album, The Dune Wolfie EP.
In late September 2011, Radford-Burns spoke to then-unsigned singer Hayley about collaborating with her in a song. She agreed and they are currently writing the untitled song.
Radford-Burns revealed that speaking with Hayley inspired him to create an independent record label and sign the two of them. On September 29, 2011, Radford-Burns created Paralyzer Records and signed himself and Hayley to the label.
