Thanks in part to Young Chop, the likes of Chief Keef, Lil Durk, and Lil Reese were at the forefront of Chicago’s “drill” renaissance throughout the earlier part of the 2010s. His take on Southern rap’s trap stylings paved the way for his own burgeoning career too, establishing his own label Chop Squad Records and releasing solo albums through it.
Chop, who has since stepped from behind the board to in front of a microphone, has now released his latest solo effort King Chop. A 12-track effort, the project features contributions from Keef, Vic Mensa (on the previously-released “Around My Way“), Chop’s Fat Gang partner King 100 James, and some troll. The entire thing can be streamed below, and purchased via iTunes.
UPDATE: Chopper just dropped a video for “Around My Way” with Vic mensa and King 100 James.
