Fueling anticipation to a boiling point with over 3 billion streams and a rapid rise chronicled by The New York Times, Complex, Billboard, GQ, and more, No Love Entertainment / Warner Records rapper NLE Choppa will unleash his major-label debut, Top Shotta, on Friday, August 7th. The album remains as one of the most anticipated hip-hop blockbusters of the summer.
To celebrate the announcement, NLE Choppa dropped a new single and lyric video entitled “Narrow Road” featuring Lil Baby. Choppa’s infectious and inimitable flow dominates the airy beat as Lil Baby brings the heat with a fiery cameo of his own. The song marks the their first official collaboration following NLE Choppa’s poignant track, “Different Day,” a remix of Lil Baby’s “Emotionally Scarred.” These young stars represent the future of hip-hop and “Narrow Road” proves to be a perfect pairing befitting of their respective reputations.
Last month, NLE Choppa set the stage for Top Shotta with “Shotta Flow 5.” Straight out of the gate, it debuted at #54 on the Billboard Hot 100 as his sixth career entry, and he topped the Emerging Artists Chart at #1. In under a few weeks, the Cole Bennett-directed music video has already surpassed over 33 million views and counting with the track eclipsing 117 million streams. In addition to plugs from HYPEBEAST, Complex, and more, XXL named it among “The 13 Best New Songs This Week.” It serves as the fifth installment of his unprecedented “Shotta Flow” series, which has generated nearly 1.2 billion global streams and achieved RIAA platinum certifications.
Adding to the excitement, NLE Choppa also graced the cover of the latest issue of Kazi Magazine. Check it out HERE. The publication shared,“At just 17, NLE Choppa has proved to be one of the new generation’s most exciting artists, delivering perfect execution upon each release.
