Ariel Johnson, a 19-year-old freshman at Louisiana State University (LSU), is making waves both on the basketball court and in the music industry. Johnson, who hails from Savannah, Georgia, is following in the footsteps of her late father, Jason Johnson, who was a rapper known as Camoflauge. Despite losing her father just five months before she was born, Johnson has made a name for herself as one of Georgia’s youngest female hip-hop ambassadors.
On the basketball court, Johnson has been a standout player for the LSU Lady Tigers, starting every game since she joined the roster. She has contributed to the team’s impressive 33-2 record in head coach Kim Mulkey’s second year, averaging 11 points, 5.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 1.2 steals per game. Johnson’s success on the court has also led to lucrative name, image, and likeness (NIL) deals, making her the fourth-highest valued women’s basketball player at $669,000 annually.
Off the court, Johnson is a talented rapper with a deal with Jay-Z’s label Roc Nation. She debuted her talents on season three of « The Rap Game » at age 13 and has since released over a dozen hits, with her latest release in January 2023 titled « Big 4. » Johnson’s music is deeply personal, with many of her songs referencing her father’s untimely death.
Despite facing setbacks on reality TV shows like « America’s Got Talent, » where she was eliminated in the quarterfinals, Johnson has continued to pursue her passions and carve out her own path. With her impressive skills both on the basketball court and in the music industry, Johnson is a rising star to watch.
