Kian Rosenberg Larsson better known as Gilli (born June 27, 1992) is a Danish rapper. Also appearing in film, he had lead role in Ækte vare (2014) as Mikael. His hit "C'est la vie" reached top of the Danish Singles chart in 2015.
He started as part of the Danish underground and rap collective B.O.C (also known variously as Bars of Crack, Bombs Over Copenhagen and Bomber Over Centrum) made up of rapper and hip hop artists mostly from Nørrebro.
He was the lead role as Mikael in Ækte vare a film directed by Fenar Ahmad in which he plays a Danish kid who grows up in a housing project with mainly foreign immigrants. Along with a group of childhood friends Tariq, Samir and Eddy, Mikael (credited in the film in his birth name Kian Rosenberg Larsson) is making music. His talent catches the eye of established rapper Apollo, who makes Mikael his ghostwriter. Stuck in a paradox that only grows bigger. Gilli's musical commercial breakthrough came through the film and the release of the soundtrack of the film as an EP Ækte vare. Released on 1 April 2014 on ArtPeople, the 33-minute EP featured MellemFingaMuzik, Murro, Kesi, Højer Øye and S!vas. It sold very well on Spotify and iTunes and reached number 8 on Hitlisten, the official Danish chart. The song "Knokler Hårdt" from the EP went platinum on stream in June 2014.
Gilli is known for various cooperations notably with KESI, S!vas, Kato, Medina, Højer Øye, hasan shah and MellemFingaMuzik. His single "C'est la vie" featuring MellemFingaMuzik reached number 1 on Tracklisten, the official Danish Singles Chart.
