Watch NLE Choppa’s brand new interview with Nardwuar

By Elliot Montanez // 6 Nov 2019

I don’t know if any other artist has had quite as much success as NLE Choppa has had in 2019 NLE Choppa, he’s accumulated hundreds of millions of views/streams while still being just a teenager, and he recently chopped it up with the GOAT Nardwuar! If already know Nardwuar is chock filled with witty questions, and here he asked NLE Choppa about plenty of things such as being inspired by Bob Marley, having a library named after him, helping other people, competing for the spelling bee in kindergarten, being a big Kobe fan, hitting ten 3’s in a row in a game, scoring a 99 yard touchdown, Memphis, Lil Wayne, Shabba Ranks, his dancing skills, Three 6 Mafia, writing his mother a song on Mother’s Day, Bobby Womack, Cole Bennett and more! Watch this excellent new interview below.

Round Here – [Rockie Fresh]

By Elliot Montanez // 6 Nov 2019

Rockie Fresh is a Chicago legend that we have been huge fans over here at LL for nearly a decade now, and just a couple days ago he dropped a brand new music video for his track titled “Round Here”. I have been loving all of the content that Rockie Fresh has been providing thus far into 2019, and I don’t see him slowing down in the least, he’s going to continue to finish strong. Rumor has it that Rockie Fresh is gearing up to release a new project before the year’s end, and with the backing with the good people at Rostrum Records, I predict that it will be Rockie’s best body of work to date.

Rap City – [Femdot] x [Smino]

By Elliot Montanez // 5 Nov 2019

Chicago artist Femdot has been having a terrific year in 2019 in many ways including the fact that he went on his first nationwide tour and received incredible feedback from his latest project 94 Camry Music, and today Femdot is back with the second visual off of the project for “Rap City” featuring St. Louis superstar Smino! This track has been a standout + fan favorite off of Femdot’s previously mentioned project, so many of his fans are pleased that he choose to shoot a video for this one, and it truly turned out better than expected. When two of the best artists out of the midwest collide I suppose you should just know magic is going to happen, add that with a stellar instrumental from one of Chicago’s best producers, Ambi Lyrics, and that’s a recipe for success. Watch this brand new music video below and if you like what you see/hear, then go ahead and visit Femdot’s website for more! Directed by Addison Wright

Kiss – [NGEEYL]

By Elliot Montanez // 4 Nov 2019

NGEEYL has been blowing up over the past year or so and tonight he is finding himself back on our pages with his brand new music video for “Kiss”. NGEEYL connected with the Jake Osmun & his growing platform No Future to shot & direct this visual, and together they created some fire, no literally like NGEEYL was on fire in this video. This song had a rockstar type of feeling to it and Jake really brought it to life with his direction, this is easily one of my favorite NGEEYL visuals to date, so hopefully we get to see these two link together again in the near future. Take a couple minutes of your time to watch this brand new music video below and if you enjoy it then don’t forget to subscribe to the No Future channel!

Cam’ron is a hip-hop legend who had a massive impact in his career but that’s no secret, one thing Cam’ron rarely does is interviews so when I saw him sit down with the good people at Rap radar, I was thrilled!

Watch Mod Sun’s brand new interview with No Jumper

By Elliot Montanez // 4 Nov 2019

Mod Sun is someone that we have been fans of here at LL for some years now, and 2019 has been a massive year for him, so when I saw that he sat down with Adam22 for a brand new interview, I couldn’t wait to dive in. The two of them spoke about several topics including being sober for almost 200 days, the negative impacts that social media has, being vulnerable + being afraid of death, his family, writing books & poetry, attending therapy & AA, learning from the past, having a three-month stint with lean, having major public relationships, being in the music community for over a decade, momentarily starting a label with Irv Gotti and so much more. This was a fantastic interview that helped me learn a ton about Mod Sun, do yourself a favor and watch this brand new interview below!

4EVER – [Adamn Killa]

By Elliot Montanez // 3 Nov 2019

I’ve been a big fan of Chicago native Adamn Killa but I’ll be honest, I never knew I needed this remix he just released of Clairo’s song “4EVER’”, it’s just great. When I first read the title I was intrigued to see how this one would sound, and at this point, I am about eight listens in + loving every second of it! Adamn is a great rapper but don’t second guess this man when it comes to singing, maybe he’s not up to par with the sensation Clario, but he showed that he could clearly do it all. Take a few minutes of your weekend to check out this brand new remix track below!

R*R*R* World 2 – [Marratedr]

By Elliot Montanez // 3 Nov 2019

Marratedr is an emcee who has been bubbling out of the Milwaukee scene over the past couple of years, and to kick off November he decided it was the perfect time to unleash his latest project titled R*R*R* World 2. I would consider one of Marratedr’s strongest skills to be making BOPS that have bass knocking instrumentals, which a lot of are provided here, but it sounds like Marratedr has improved in many other areas since I last heard from him making for an all-around quality listen. Check out this brand new tape to get in tune with a rising Midwest artist, and if you like what you hear don’t forget to give him a follow!
