King Louie 'Soprano' (EP stream)
Published Nov 07, 2014Chicago drill dude King Louie is keeping the gangster-themed releases going by following up his Tony mixtape with a new EP called Soprano. If that, ahem, "made" your day, you can stream the seven-song release online now.
Big on juxtapositions, the EP begins with a hard-as-fuck Louie running triplet-rhythm bars over a luxurious and silky, adult contemporary-geared beat. "Give You That" likewise brings ballad-style sonics into the mix, though with a booming backbeat helping fill out the low-end as Louie raps about his "adored boo."
Despite a few nasty lines, tracks like "Sexin" and "On My Mind" also bring softened sounds to the table, with the latter also riffing on a Rihanna single. You can sample the whole set down below.
