Earlier this year, King L (formerly known as King Louie) made our list of 10 New Chicago Rappers to Watch For. Well, it looks like the industry has been paying attention to his growing buzz, because King L just signed a fresh deal with Epic Records. Listen below to his new summer anthem "Val Venis" produced by C-Sick, off his upcoming release Dope & Shrimp. It bangs. You can also read an exclusive interview with him where he discusses his new deal over at FakeShoreDrive. Congrats, King.
