Meet: King Louie
He's the man, little did you know
Catch him on: His mixtapes Drilluminati and March Madness and more recently on the Yeezus track, "Send it Up"
His Hood: Southside
He's the man and he's always been the man—King L has always believed that. So much so that he knew from the jump he wanted to rap. He started off making drill mixtape tracks alongside many a Chicago rappers, but he's proving once more why he is the man and apart from the rest. Having recently been featured on the Chi-Town rap god Kanye West's latest album, King L is being noticed by some of the best and he's just getting started. If you don't know, now you know.
Shoot for the stars, so if you fall, you land on a cloud:
"Real shit, I never really wanted a job. It was never in my head that I was gon' get a 9 to 5. I tried to fool myself into believing that I wanted a job. I always felt like when everything else failed, I would get a job, but I never worked a real actual job in my life. Then I started taking the rap shit serious."
They wanna rap and make soul beats just like him:
"Working with Kanye was a great learning experience, it was just good for my craft. It was a big motivational experience, definitely."
Knew they were gang-affiliated, got on TV and told on 'em:
"I just look at it like, the stuff we rappin' about it's not fact. Like when actors prepare for a role, people give those guys stuff like Oscars and things of that nature and they get awards for doing such great acting. So what we doing is basically painting a picture of our life for the songs and it's like due to the fact that we young and we talking about violence, people take it the wrong way."
