Lil Bibby Discusses Defending Drake
Lil Bibby currently choosing songs for his EP, says he's been approached by Tyler, The Creator, J. Cole, and other artists.
Up-and-coming Chicago rapper Lil Bibby has been approached by a number of his fellow artists following the release of his Free Crack mixtape. Among the artists who have approached Bibby in regards to a potential collaboration is Young Money singer/emcee Drake.
Lil Bibby spoke briefly on Drake during a newly-published interview with Complex as he commented on introducing those in his city, who he says were primarily Lil Wayne fans, to Drake.
“I’m from Chicago, man. And I’m from the streets so not a lot of people listen to Drake,” he said. “I’m not gonna lie to you. When it was Drake and Wayne, we was big Wayne fans in Chicago…I had to make my homies sit down and listen to what he was saying, you know? So, I was always a big Drake fan. And for him to reach out to me that was just a big moment.”
The Windy City wordsmith later revealed that Mac Miller, Action Bronson, and Tyler, The Creator are artists who have also reached out. Lil Bibby added that he’s even willing to put aside his preference for working in the studio alone to work with the likes of Big Sean and J. Cole.
“I just like doing my own thing,” Bibby said. “Working on my own time…Like other people I don’t know how they work or they process. I just know how to do my thing, you know? Some artists like Big Sean and J. Cole said they wanna get in the studio and make something. So, I guess I gotta make an exception for those guys.”
In regards to a follow-up to Free Crack, Lil Bibby says he’s finally putting the final touches on his EP.
“It’s almost finished. I’m really having a little trouble picking the songs cause I got a lot of good songs. I don’t know what songs I’m gonna put on there,” the Chicago rapper said.
Released late last year, Lil Bibby’s Free Crack mixtape consisted of 17 tracks and boasted guest appearances and production from Lil Herb, Hit-Boy, DJ L, and more.
