Lil Bibby and Blac Youngsta Close the Year Out Strong on New Song “Sumn”
Former XXL Freshman Lil Bibby links with CMG signee Blac Youngsta for the new track “Sumn,” on which both rappers share the dangers of a life in the street.
“Sumn” is a trap-influenced song that finds two rappers from two totally different hoods keeping it real about their environment. Both of Bibby’s verses bring you into his world as a rapper from Chicago who can’t quite shake his past, while Blac Youngsta shares how his life has changed since he became successful.
“And I heard sumn through the grapevine/Lil’ niggas said they gon’ take mine/But everywhere I go, I take mine/It’s gon’ be the reason they stay dyin',” spits Bibby, letting his enemies know he won’t go down without a fight.
Countering Bibby’s energy, Blac Youngsta calmly relays how your fortune can change once your lives starts to improve, for better or worse. “I got homeboys, doing Fed time, outta state right now/Baby I’m on time for everything, but I’m late right now/They was in love with me when I came in, but they hate right now/You was a real nigga back then nigga, but you fake right now,” raps Blac Youngsta.
According to Bibby, his upcoming project, FC4, has been finished since August, but is currently being held up due to some clearance issues. The debut album doesn’t have a release date at this time. Bibby has also teased a new collaboration with New York City’s A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie.
