Chi-Town what up?! Three of the finest rappers out of the Windy City join forces on one solid track. Lil Herb’s Welcome to Fazoland gets a facelift with Common and Chance the Rapper jumping on the remix. Peep the visuals after the jump.
Lil Herb is undoubtedly one of the most promising young talents coming out of Chicago’s drill movement and if you thought his Welcome to Fazoland was a fluke Herb returns with his sophomore mixtape Ball Like I’m Kobe. Herb debuts “Frankie Lymon”, the first single off Ball Like I’m Kobe. Listen after the jump.
Lil Herb, like Lil Bibby, Lil Durk and Lil Reese, is a Chi-town hustler rapper. Where he lacks in finesse, he makes up for in pulp. On this one, Common and Chance add the touches of subtlety and sobriety. Com just needs to rap a little faster so he doesn’t give the song such an obvious belly. After the jump.
Common’s Nobody’s Smiling is soon to be released. “The Neighborhood” follows a familiar series of Common tropes: poems about his romance with the ghetto, fables about street heroes and villains, an R&B singer in the mix. This is a terrific indication that Rashid is back to his roots as the capital-C Conscious rapper, and will save the truly sweet stuff for the next project.
Louie and Herb rep the east side of the Chi in a doom-filled visual for “Eastside Sh*t,” which will live on King L’s upcoming Drilluminati sequel.
Lil Herb hangs on the block and drops a new clip for “Control Me,” directed by HiDef. Herb’s Welcome To Fazoland: The Movie project is on the way.
