Hip Hop Isn't Dead... It Lives In The HOOD

Chicago rapper Lil Romo released the visual for the fan-adored track "12 Hot" today. Found on his debut project, King Without A Crown, the clean visuals were directed by Fake Dell through New York production outfit, Shot Clock. King Without A Crown is available everywhere now, watch "12 Hot" HERE.

On the 13-track body of work, featuring production from Kid Wonder, All Day, OG Mic Will and more, the Chicago newcomer tells his story the only way he knows how, through genre bending melodies and thought provoking lyrics. Released at a time when Chicago sees its most violent year in over 28 years, with over 3000+ shootings so far in 2020, King Without A Crown is Lil Romo's ode to his violence wrought city.

"Wishing shit was different, nowadays we can't have any fun," Lil Romo raps on his latest single and video, "Long Time," reflecting on his surrounding. The new track and video comes behind his latest single "223" and the project's first single, "When I Was Down" (nearly 500K views) released in April.

Romo’s unapologetic storytelling has garnered the attention of an active audience. He burst onto the scene in early 2019 with the release of the street anthem “Let’s Do It,” which has clocked in over 1M views on YouTube to date. With follow up hit “Move For Me” at half a million views and all recent releases amassing hundreds of thousands of hits in mere days, Chicago newcomer Lil Romo’s trajectory is true to his position at the #1 spot on Chicago media outlet WhatsTheWord's 2020ArtistToWatch list.

Born and raised in Englewood, Chicago, 18-year-old Lil Romo faced some of life’s harshest challenges early on. Romo’s love for music dates back to his pre-teen years and he lists Lil Wayne and Michael Jackson as early musical influences. These artists ignited his appreciation for lyricism and artistry. With intentions of highlighting his unwavering love for his hometown while also anticipating putting all of the negative aspects behind him, Lil Romo zooms in on real life stories about growing up and simply existing in Chicago. With hundreds of thousands of views across YouTube and the release of his highly anticipated debut project, King Without A Crown, Lil Romo is poised for a major year.
