NLE Choppa – Me Vs. Me

Memphis rap star NLE Choppa is all about positive vibes as he unleashes a reflective, yet joyous new mixtape, Me Vs. Me. This latest project will be Choppa’s first full-length since his 2020 critically acclaimed, From Dark to Light. Like that project, Choppa uses Me Vs. Me to explore concepts of duality, self-growth, spirituality, and the search for inner peace. Listen to Me Vs. Me on NLE Entertainment/Warner Records above.

Clocking in at 13 tracks, Me Vs. Me offers fans a bevy of new hits, each song offering its own standout moments and clever lyrics. The project begins with “Shotta Flow 6,” the latest in an epic series. The original “Shotta Flow” was released January 2019, and it’s staggering to hear how much he’s developed artistically and personally since that initial, already stunning release. “Shotta Flow 6” features catchy yet menacing piano and chest-pummeling bass that comes in to accompany Choppa’s epic delivery. With a double-time cadence, he raps about his relentless work ethic. “Said I was done, I’m back at it again,” he raps. “Back in their car and we spending their bands.” On the track and in the Ben Marc directed video, NLE Choppa makes it loud and clear: He’s back, and he’s ready to take what he deserves.

Me Vs. Me also includes Choppa’s October hit “Jumpin,” which features Chicago rap star Polo G. The track highlights Choppa’s gift for clever couplets and vivid storytelling. The single already has over 71M streams and is approaching 16 million YouTube views. He shows his ability to unleash raps that are intimidating, inspiring, and hysterical—and further establishes himself as one of the most flexible young rappers working today.

This new project arrives amidst a wildly creative streak for Choppa. In August 2021, he released the hard-hitting “Mmm Hmm,” which also appears on Me Vs. Me. While over the summer he took a moment to get even more introspective, sharing the poignant “Letter to My Daughter.” On April 1, he dropped his beloved “First Day Out,” a freestyle over SpotemGottem’s “Beat Box.” The video has since achieved 72 million views on YouTube and the track was eventually reissued as an official remix called “Beat Box 4.” Back in January of last year, Choppa dropped “Picture Me Grapin,’” with a video paying homage to Tupac Shakur. The visual was released at 11:11 AM on January 22, playing into Choppa’s fascination with numerology.

Choppa continues to push himself and the culture forward. He crashed the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 with his 2020 debut album, Top Shotta. He achieved a record run of 24 weeks atop Billboard’s Emerging Artists Chart. To date, he has gathered 5 billion-plus global streams, thirteen RIAA-certified plaques, a spot on the 2020 XXL Freshman list, and a nomination for the 2020 BET Hip-Hop Awards’ Best New Artist. In 2021, he was even named to Billboard’s 21 Under 21 list. He was lauded during an appearance on the daytime talk show The Real for “highlighting the side of hip-hop society rarely gets to see.” And he’s also recently offered up a monumental performance at the Los Angeles edition of the tastemaking Rolling Loud festival. What’s more, Choppa’s featured on Inked Magazine’s latest digital cover talking about the significance of his upper body tattoos. Read it HERE. The world is NLE Choppa’s for the taking, and with projects as thoughtful, visionary, and urgent as Me Vs. Me, it’s clear he’s not taking any moment for granted.
