King L Tells The Story Behind His ‘Yeezus’ Experience

King Louie

Just over a year ago, Kanye West shouted out King Louie (who now goes by King L) on his version of Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like,” giving his stamp of approval to one of Chicago’s most exciting young talents. Louie’s kept busy in the year since, tapping Pusha T and Juicy J for last Fall’s “My Hoes They Do Drugs,” and December’s Drilluminati mixtape. It wasn’t long after wrapping up his March Madness series—in which he released a new song every day for a month—that Louie got the call from his manager (and former Kanye West manager) John Monopoly that he’d be flown out to Paris to work with Kanye on his sixth solo album, Yeezus. XXL caught up with Louie, who was back home in Chicago, to get the backstory behind “Send It Up” and his experience in Paris. Here’s his Yeezus Experience.
