Breaking Boogie lands in the Bronx is none other than the rising rhyme, Lokolil! This Bronx-born drill rapper is a new voice quickly emerging on the rap scene and doing everything he can to rise to the top. In doing so, he returns with the visuals from his recently released record, “Bet on me”.
Lokolil brings “Bet on me”
At 21, Lokolil has already developed a distinct style, sound and aesthetic appeal. He sees no reason to follow trends or imitate others. Compared to hip hop hitmakers like Kay Flock, B-Lovee and Shawny Binladen – after one listen, rig leaders are convinced he’s a unique force to be reckoned with.
Continually creating his own path, Lokolil is a feisty, passionate spitter with a thrilling flow and street knowledge of a lifetime.
“I make this music because I’ve been through a lot and I just rap about how I live,” he says.
You can tell his lyrics carry weight, as evidenced by tracks like “You Are My High.” After spending far too long on the streets and in prison, he has dedicated himself to achieving the level of success that will keep him from ever returning to this life. Over the years, he has witnessed so many losses followed by seeing his family struggle too hard not to use his lyrical abilities as their ticket to success.
Growing up, the artist was influenced by heavy hip-hop lyricists like Tupac and DMX. In which you can clearly hear their influence in the style and flow of Lokolil. Additionally, his musical momentum was fueled and supported by his father who was affiliated with the Wu-Tang Clan. Sadly, with his recent passing, Lokolil viewed the loss as a continuation of his and his father’s dream of becoming one of the Bronx’s leading entertainers.
His latest studio effort is a well-produced and incredibly appealing record that resonates with a wide audience. As well as representing an incredible natural progression from Lokolil. With her openly creative mind, the possibilities are truly limitless!
