19-year-old Chicago-based rapper Lil Bibby made one giant leap last year with his mixtape Free Crack. He’ll soon return with a new EP The Book, which is set for release sometime this year. In anticipation, he’s shared a hard-hitting lead single “Dead Or In Prison”.
Though Lil Bibby is still just a teenager, his bellowing, gruff voice sounds like it has had at least 30 years of abuse. Abrasive and raspy, his aggressive flow showcases his world-weary perspective with lines like, “just a young nigga chasin’ millions / took advantage of the blessin’s I was given / I thought I would be dead or in prison.” Listen in below (via Nah Right).
