We recently highlighted Chicago’s Lil Herb, and his rhyming partner Lil Bibby approaches Chicago rap with a similar lyrical depth. In the build up to his newest mixtape Free Crack II, Bibby released the bombastic “We Are Strong” with Louisiana’s Kevin Gates. Gates doesn’t hold back, ruminating on his brother’s death and the “here today and gone tomorrow” nature of places he’s called home. Though Lil Bibby and Lil Herb might be an inseparable musical pair, Bibby and Gates perfectly execute a “fuck the world” chemistry here.
