King Lil G – “Mexican Trap”
Today, Los Angeles rapper King Lil G releases the hard-hitting lead single “Mexican Trap” from his upcoming album Gangster Movie. With the single, he takes his sound into new territory, integrating bounce-worthy production and bulletproof bars in both English and Spanish. Along with being a songwriter, the multitalented King Lil G shows off his chops as a director too. The music video, directed by and starring himself, shows the dangerous life of a boss surrounded by luxury cars, jewelry, and beautiful women.
King Lil G explains, “I wanted to start rapping about what my life has become. There’s nobody else doing what I do as a Mexican-American and I’m here to show the world with this new sound and direction mixing English with Spanish over trap beats that a Mexican can take this sound to the next level. I’m here to stay and King Lil G is going to the top.”
“Mexican Trap” follows his album 90’s Kid, Vol 2 released in 2020. That project featured the singles “Unemployment” and “Hollowtips” that gained over 5 million views on YouTube, with the latter featured on Apple Music’s “Hot Tracks” playlist and hitting #11 on YouTube’s trending videos. His dedicated fanbase has led to over half a billion YouTube views and 1 million subscribers, along with 100 million Spotify streams and 3 million followers across social media.
