Stream: Lil Bibby, “Dead Or In Prison”


Free Crack, last November’s great debut mixtape from baby-faced old soul Lil Bibby, represented a subtle but important shift in young Chicago street rap, not only defying the city’s reputation as anti-lyrical, but also tweaking drill’s themes to be just as bitter and remorseful as they are proudly nihilistic. He recently announced a follow-up EP, The Book; its first look, the C-Biz produced “Dead Or In Prison,” continues his tradition of balancing tough-guy flexing and world-weary contemplation, countering his recent success with his childhood assumptions that he’d end up dead or in prison. The Book is expected to drop before summer; if you missed it, watch Bibby perform one of his best songs, “Water,” at The FADER FORT in Austin last month.
