19-year-old NLE Choppa is definitely on top of the world right now. With his new album ‘Me Vs. Me’ currently heating up, a viral L.A. Leakers freestyle under his belt, and a new baby on the way, the Memphis native has a lot to be grateful for during this time.
Speaking with L.A. Leakers Justin Credible and DJ Sourmilk, Choppa details how his past experiences have not only shaped his life now but has played a huge part in the music he makes today. As ‘Me Vs. Me’ is a reflection of Choppa’s growth from a 16-year-old to now, the rapper explains his decision for the album’s title was in response to using his past and human experiences as a guiding light. Choppa tapped Young Thug, G Herbo, Moneybagg Yo, and Polo G for features on his album and shares that his work with Polo G is the most organic, and the two have conversations about continuing to carry rap into the future.
As the father-to-be has been open about his health journey and sobriety, the rapper admits to the Leakers that he once had troubles recording in the studio because of his addiction habits that would hinder his stamina in the studio.
Choppa goes on to share that his dream collab is with Drake and how he paid homage to one of his biggest inspirations, Tupac, with a collaboration with Quincy Jones’ son QD3.
