King Louie has a bone to pick with critics of Chicago Hip Hop. Chicago artists in this genre of Hip Hop have been under attack for their gritty tales of street life and violence.
King L compared his lyrics to a film with violence. The MUBU frontman went on to say he shouldn’t be criticized for rapping his life.
“…All you motherf*****s gotta say something about violence in our raps… stop going to promote and buy tickets to go see movies with violence in it with good actors,” he said.
“We just rapping our life b***h!” he added.
King L even defended his music during an interview with Fox 32.
“I play my bad role and narrate the negativity and the violence I grew up in Chicago. I’m just making it artistic,” the “Drilluminati 2” rapper said.
