It is with great pleasure that we announce that Nigerian rap artist NLE Choppa has officially released his second album, Cottonwood 2, a follow up to his debut album, Cottonwood, which was released back in 2018. Among the 22 tracks featured on the project were early previews of songs such as “Ain’t Gonna Answer,” and “S**t Me Out, “Champions,” along with the collaboration of Lil Wayne, who jumped on board to contribute to the project with his own verse. Throughout the track, the Memphis emcee channels his inner Weezy energy by referencing one of the most famous hooks of all time, the “Stuntin’ Like My Daddy” hook:
The emcee NLE Choppa has previously released music under the name Me vs. Me back in 2022, a 16-song album boasting collaborations from the likes of G Herbo, Polo G, Young Thug, and Moneybagg Yo. His visuals from the recording have been released since then for cuts from the album that include “Trap Phone,” “Stompin,” and “Lick Me Baby.” The project serves as a follow-up to his 2012 mixtape From Dark to Light as well as his 2015 full-length release Top Shotta, which he released in December.
