Lil Bibby officially releases “Thought It Was a Drought” via Kemosabe Records/RCA Records for commercial consumption. The record was originally released in January through WorldStarHipHop. The video gained over 5 million views on YouTube and has been one of the biggest songs that Bibby has released this year. The DJ L-produced record finds Bibby rapping from an underdog mentality, spitting rhymes about how he overcame the odds.

"I said I came from the mud and I'm really tired of tellin' them/That lean had me stuck, so I had to quit the medicine/I post up on the block, I had seven for the dub/Swear I had the shit on lock, 'cause my brother was the plug/And these strippers mad, I won't throw no money in the club/I got youngins doin' bids, every month I show 'em love/I got hitters like the Cubs, and the killas is my cous'/I can't trust none of these niggas, if you with me then they blood," he raps.

“Thought It Was a Drought” is the first single off Bibby's debut project on Kemosabe Records/RCA Records, which is slated to release later this year.

Previously, he dropped "Change" featuring Preme last week plus “Causing Havoc” and “Trapspots” in March. The former XXL Freshman also released FC3 The Epilogue last month and has been previewing Free Crack 4 on Instagram. There's no word if FC4 is shelved or if it's still on the way. XXL has reached out to Bibby's reps for comment.

The Chi-town native is also set to link up with longtime collaborator G Herbo for a collaborative project titled No Limitations. 2017 looks like a big year for Lil Bibby.
