Laroi recently took aim at people from his past trying to leech off him after he found fame as a rapper in America. 

The teenager, who is from the working-class Sydney suburb of Waterloo, called out the hangers-on during a radio interview on Tuesday. 

‘I’ve had all types of f**kers come out the woodwork,’ he told Fitzy and Wippa. 

‘You don’t speak to these people for years and all of sudden it’s like, “I’ve always believed in you,” and it’s like, “No, you didn’t,”‘ he said.

Laroi hinted he’d been forced to cut off some people asking him for money or exposure.

‘I’ve had people come out who I have known for three weeks [saying], “Bro, you just gonna leave me?” And I’m like, “I don’t have to give you anything,” he said.

‘I don’t even know you like that.’ 

It has been three years since Laroi left Australia and moved to LA to follow his dreams of becoming a chart-topping rapper.
