Chicago rapper Lil Bibby has some of the strongest buzz of any artist in the city, with hits like "For The Low" and "How We Move" racking up more than a million YouTube views each. He's gotten a subtle Drake co-sign, and, along with frequent collaborator Lil Herb, he landed on our own list of new rappers to watch out for earlier this year. Oh yeah, and he still hasn't put out a proper full-length release.
His upcoming mixtape, Free Crack, continues to get pushed back, but as consolation (and a preview), today he offered this hard-hitting track about growing up in the streets of Chicago. Bibby points to the way the media has jumped on Chicago rap as the root of local violence ("Bodies dropping every day they trying to blame us") and dismisses the suggestion, pointing to his surroundings as a kid: "You a probably go crazy if you had seen what I seen."
It's a hard track, and it promises more of the same for Free Crack. Check it out below:
