Meet Lil Lonnie, the Mississippi rapper who’s linked up with the melodic Bryson Tiller for a banger called ‘Change Up’, all about people changing for fame.
‘Change Up’ has an infectiously melodic wave to it, driven by trap-soul pioneer Bryson Tiller, paired with Lil Lonnie’s smooth and assonant raps, the pair go back to back over the smooth Big Fruit produced beat. ‘Change Up’ has come at that pivotal point in Lil Lonnie’s career, it’s all about staying humble, even when you’re stacking paper and getting more and more success. Lil Lonnie, has said it himself, he won’t be changing.
While ‘Change Up’ may be your first introduction to Lil Lonnie, the 20 year old rapper has been steadily grinding away. Next month he’s releasing ‘They Know What’s Going On 2’ (TKWGO 2) the follow-up of his 2015 project that featured the smooth trap hit, ‘Colours‘.
