Do you want to know how to become the next big rap star of your city? Do you want to be the next big thing? Maybe you think you are already… No matter what you may think, if you want the top spot we would suggest watching the foot steps of Lil Bibby, because he in moving fast in that direction. Even though the name might be lil but these foot steps are huge and will no longer be ignored.
First thing on your to-do-list is survive the mean streets of Chi-town. Or what is now being referred to as Chi-Raq, a reference to the highly dangerous country of Iraq. If you havent heard, Chicago is pretty back when it come to violence and stuff so if you can survive then you should have a lot to rap about. Just like this 19 year old Lil Bibby does. Now even though he is only 19 you will hear the spirit of a man beyond that age, but we guess that’s what surviving will do to you.
Second thing to do is practice. Yes we are talking about practice! Because these type of skill don’t just develop over night, we are talking lyrical skills that rivals and maybe even surpasses your favorite rappers. Also make sure your skills allow you to rap over any type of beat as Lil Bibby’s mixtape “Free Crack” showcases. “Free Crack“ has an array of Kanye-like soul samples, down south gangster bass lines and jazzy saxophones which Lil Bibby rhymes through with ease.
Last but definitely not least create a mixtape worthy enough to be an album, title it “Free Crack”, and then just give it away. You think you got what it takes? Many think they do, but few succeed. Lil Bibby is beyond hot and if he’s not…you tell us who is! Listen to a couple of tarcks, then download, and comment.
If you slept on our post back in October then of course you don’t know about this #AcidRap. The mixtape from the one and only, Chance the Rapper, which dropped back in April has to be one of the most perfect body of work for the young rapper. Every track he owns, exhibiting his very distinct style of which has vastly improved. Chance the Rappers’ Acid Rap will be one of the top mixtapes of the year! With features from Twista, Childish Gambino, and Kids These Days and some of the most abstract production, makes Acid Rap a masterpiece. Chance the Rapper shows that his #10days from school turned out to be a blessing from the All Mighty. Floored in amazement with the progression of his ever improving style and flow, we see Chance riding the wave of Acid Rap straight to stardom.
Hot Underground Hip Hop Artist: Chief Keef
After Kanye blessed this 16-year-old from the Chi by remixing his, soon to be classic club banger, he has been on the overtime grind. Chief Keef along with a handful of other Chicago grown artist have kept this buzz BLAZING. If you haven’t heard then I am 100% convinced that you literally live under a rock… NO BS! My only question is, are we wrong to bring him to you for the sake of try to celebrating underground HIP HOP? Chief Keef’s lyrics are not what we would call, complex or even complete sentences (im just saying) But what Chief Keef is that makes him so hip hop is his grind!!! And at 16 years of age that something that can’t be denied.
Now if you are some of the few who don’t know bout Chief Keef, you will from his mixtape “Back From The Dead“. Where his lyrics create stories that describe his life and environment, which frankly are very straight to the point, violent, and disrespectful to females and anyone else he don’t like. As illustrated in “I Don”t Like” and every other track on this mixtape. If I had to describe his style I would say he was Waka Flacka’s son… You will see what I mean when you hear this, but I can say he has that “it” factor
Hope to see nothing but success on his way to the top because he is on his way… So check him out and let us know where we went wrong. Check the track and post back!!!
