Lil’ Mabu’s Real Name And How He Got His Moniker
Lil’ Mabu’s real name is Mathew Peter De Luca, but he is better known by his stage name Lil’ Mabu. He began by posting his drill rap videos on his Social Media handles, and as he began to gain the people’s attention and became famous, he decided to begin using the moniker Lil’ Mabu – probably as a good luck charm to be like some very successful and famous rappers whose moniker start with Lil’.
How Old Is Lil Mabu?
Lil’ Mabu is currently 18 year old, as he was born on April 4, 2005, in Manhattan, New York, in the United States of America. It is worth noting that he has been able to gain the attention of music lovers and become quite popular and influential in some ways despite his very young age.
Having come into the music industry less than a decade now, he has been able to achieve what some upcoming artists – especially young rappers would never achieve throughout their lifetime, and he has done so quite effortlessly. He has been able to combine his high school studies while still managing to produce hit tracks and albums without dropping out of school.
Where Is Lil Mabu From?
Lil’ Mabu was born in Manhattan, New York City, in the United States of America, and he is, therefore, an American by birth. Some folks who know his real name see De Luca and his last name and immediately conclude that he is not American and must have been an immigrant who migrated to the United States with his family in order to pursue the American dream.
The truth about that is that Lil’ Mabu himself is an American, but his father, Peter De Luca, seems to have some Italian ancestry in him, and that is where he got the De Luca name from. It is unclear where his birth mother is from, so the sum total of his ancestry and ethnicity cannot be determined until that parental variable is known.
Where Does Lil Mabu Live?
Currently, Lil’ Mabu is still living with his parents – specifically his father, who is based in Manhattan, New York City, in the United States of America. On the other hand, after graduating from Collegiate School – based in Manhattan, he is currently a student at Emory University, which is in Atlanta, Georgia, in the United States, and he did confirm that he was staying in a dorm on campus.
Lil Mabu’s father actually began making his money as far back as 1985 when he was actively involved in the Real Estate sector. He was then the President of Peter De Luca Properties and was able to own a very luxurious mansion on the Upper East Side. The condo has 5 bedrooms and 5 Baths and sits on a 3,327-square-foot space.
Who Are Lil Mabu’s Dad and Mom?
Lil’ Mabu’s father is Peter De Luca, while his mother is listed as Jane De Luca on most reports and publications, and this seems not to be true as Jane De Luca actually divorced Peter De Luca in 1998 – 7 years before Lil Mabu was born. Given this, she seems very unlikely to be his birth mother. Let us get to know more about his parents –
Peter De Luca
Lil’ Mabu’s father is Peter De Luca, a funeral home operator based in Manhattan in New York City in the United States of America. He was born sometime in 1952 and is currently 71 year old. He is said to be a hard-core Manhattan who has lived most of his life in his beloved city and loves it with all his being.
According to his LinkedIn profile, Peter De Luca became a New York City NYS licensed Funeral Director in 1971. He was President of De Luca Properties between December 1985 to 2014. He is also listed as being the President of Beth Abraham Memorial Chapel between June 1996 to 2014. He is currently the Chief Executive Officer and President of Crestwood Cremation and Funeral Services from January 1985 to Date.
He is also currently the Chief Executive Officer and President of Greenwich Village Funeral Home Inc., from June 1985 to date. Lil Mabu’s father seems to be doing very well for himself, as he has been able to amass quite a fortune from his chosen career and endeavors and currently lives in comfort and luxury – with 2 luxurious homes totaling $ 12 million dollars and some other expensive automobiles.
He also seems to be one who is not shy of courting controversies once in a while. He was once accused by a grieving family member, whom his funeral home had provided services to, of callously soliciting future business from a grieving 91-year-old family member while they were still at the ceremony. The niece of the 91-year-old was infuriated and punched him in the face.
Peter De Luca’s Marriage And Controversial Divorce
Peter De Luca was married to Jane De Luca sometime in 1978, and the wish of the newlyweds then was to start a family immediately. Unfortunately, things did not work out quite that fast for them in starting a family, and they had to wait till 1986 to have their first son, Peter Craig De Luca – whose delivery was complicated and under very horrifying circumstances that almost killed his mother.
Just a little over a year after the birth of their first son, Jane was taking care of the baby on the top floor when their Sullivan Street Townhouse collapsed right under her and the baby. She was finally rescued three hours after the incident, still clutching onto her baby – who tragically had died in her arms, and she was barely alive herself.
When she was rushed to the hospital, she was pronounced dead on arrival, as was her baby, but for some strange reasons, the medics at the hospital decided to try resuscitating her. Though they did so, after a few hours, one of her legs had been severed from her body and was barely hanging on by her skin, her two lungs were also perforated, and she had multiple injuries and was bleeding all over.
She, unfortunately, had to endure multiple surgeries and countless blood transfusions in order to save her life, but she unfortunately got both Hepatitis B and C from the transfusions. One thing led to another – circumstances under which we are not clear, but she sued her husband for the injuries and trauma sustained during the building collapse and also filed for divorce.
After a long battle in court, she eventually was awarded $ 4 million in damages – which included their then home and $ 1 million cash. The divorce was finalized in 1998. In 2006, her ex-husband’s father informed her that she had been cheated in their asset sharing at divorce, as her ex-husband had colluded with some corrupt judges to hide some of his assets from her, costing her millions of Dollars in settlement.
Lil’ Mabu’s Mother
The identity of Lil’Mabu’s mother has always been given as Jane De Luca by several media reports and online publications, and from all that has been explained above, it seems most unlikely that Jane De Luca could really be his biological mother, as she divorced his father 7 years before he was born. There is also no report that the two ever got back together, talk less of making another baby.
Is Lil Mabu Adopted?
From all that we know about Lil’ Mabu, the chances that he was adopted by his parents are very slim. There are a few reports online and a few videos on YouTube who claim to personally know his father, Peter De Luca, and they did confirm that he was actually Peter’s child – their accounts were, however silent on who his mother is/was.
It is not clear exactly when the rumors began flying around that Lil’ Mabu was adopted, but it may have begun when he posted a video on his YouTube channel and titled it “Lil’ Mabu gets adopted, emotional”.
This sparked rumors that his “real” father was actually Jefferey B. Vaughn, who was the former Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of Capitol Records. One of the reasons given for this was that Lil’ Mabu climbed the musical success ladder rather too easily and must have had some help from a very influential person in the industry.
They believed that Jefferey Vaughn, who has considerable influence in the music scene, must have been the one behind Lil’ Mabu’s astronomical rise in the music industry. Lil’ Mabu also got a lot of mentions and likes from well-established artists, moves which they (rumor peddlers) thought must have been made possible by a very influential figure like Vaughn.

Alyssa was born sometime in April 2002 – about 3 years before Lil’ Mabu’s birth, and she is currently 21 year old. Not much is known about Alyssa’s life, except for the fact that she has been reported to be stunningly beautiful, as she has appeared a few times on Lil’ Mabu’s videos posted on his TikTok handle.
His older brother (or half-brother), Peter Craig Deluca, was born in 1986 but tragically died in the building collapse incident, which also almost killed his mother, Jane De Luca. Other than these two mentioned above and his yet-to-be-identified birth mother and father, Peter De Luca, he has no other family members.

In early 2022, Lil’ Mabu posted a picture on his Instagram handle where he was standing near a Wanted sign put up about him. This post got some of his fans worried, and they thought that their favorite artist could be wanted by the police in connection with some murder – as he often raps about, or some other type of crime.
Turns out that the poster was not even real and seemed more like an advertising campaign just to generate reactions from the public. Though he raps about violence and crimes, he does not seem to be a violent person and does not own any firearms at all. It was just a buzz-generating move, and he is not wanted by the authorities at all, nor has he ever committed any crime yet.
He is currently in college, where he is studying hard to graduate with a business degree and trying to combine his academics with his musical career at the same time. In a YouTube video that he posted from his Dorm room, he stated that he had turned down very lucrative deals to stay in school and make music at the same time and prove those who told him that doing both could not be done wrong.
