Lil Bibby may be fusing Hip Hop and R&B together in a new track. Lil Bibby was recently caught in the studio with famed Soul singer Anthony Hamilton.
Bibby listened with others inside the studio as a song streamed. The track appeared to earn the approval of listeners.
Lil Bibby hasn’t revealed too much information about his forthcoming EP titled “The Book.”
But the “Free Crack” rapper did hint during an interview with Sway In The Morning the kind of production fans may hear on the project.
“I think I wanna have Hit-Boy co-produce it with me,” he said in reference to the West Coast producer.
Hit-Boy, born Chauncey Hollis, is a renowned record producer having collaborated some of the industry’s hottest artists, including, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Eminem, Lil Wayne and Justine Bieber, to name a few.
Bibby is halfway complete with the EP.
“I’m like four songs in,” Bibby told XXL. “I got four or five songs, and I’m tryna put eight joints on there. Seven or eight. I’m really thinking about that.”
The lead single to this project, according to Bibby, will be titled “Dead Or In Prison.”
Lil Bibby is looking to incorporate a southern and R&B feel on a few songs on the project.
The East Side native spoke with Vibe regarding potential features for the project, which included Trae The Truth and Keyshia Cole.
Bibby already laid down a track with Trae.
Bibby leaked a short snippet of the single online in February where he raps, “Sick with it, throw up/Bibby got his dough up/Soon as you grow up, n****s wanna show up/I do this s**t for real with my youngins from the Ville/Say the word, get em killed…”
The title of his debut EP was suggested by a fan on Twitter, Bibby recalls.
“I went to Twitter and I asked somebody for help with the titled, and they came up with ‘The Book Of Bibby,’ and I was just thinking like ‘Why don’t I just name it ‘The Book,’” the “Bibby Story” rapper said.
Bibby is looking to release the project right before summer.
“…EP will probably be out in six weeks, six to eight weeks,” he said.
