King L

At 24, King L is a relative senior citizen of Chicago’s drill scene, but with age comes maturity, and King’s flow, hooks and ear for beats show more polish and wit than the brute-force music of his younger peers. After a 2012 that included a Kanye shout-out on the “I Don’t Like” remix and two well-received mixtapes, King is ready to drop his major-label debut, Dope & Shrimp, which features Juicy J, Pusha T, Young Chop and more.
