The 26-year-old rapper (born Louis Johnson Jr.) has been a rising star of the Chicago drill scene for years, and gained wider recognition when he appeared on “Send It Up,” from Kanye West’s 2013 album Yeezus.
Earlier this year, King Louie popped up on “Familiar,” on the acclaimed Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment album Surf. Along with Chance The Rapper, the MC has worked extensively with Chief Keef, Lil Bibby and Lil Herb.
