Memphis rapper NLE Choppa has joined forces with rap legend Lil Wayne for his latest single "Ain't Going To Change," and fans are in for a treat.
Packed with raucous energy, dizzying wordplay, and boundless attitude, the collaboration is the latest taste of Choppa's highly anticipated Cottonwood 2 album, which is set to be released on April 14th via NLE Entertainment/Warner Records.
The multi-platinum MC sets the tone with the opening lines, "Tell me baby, what we doin', what we doin'? Makin' money," over driving percussion and frantic strings. Lil Wayne then steps up to contribute one of his trademark spitfire verses, and the hip-hop cohorts know exactly how to bring the party. "Ain't Gonna Answer" is no exception and was made to be blasted as loud as possible.
This banger arrives just weeks after Choppa's hard-hitting anthem "Mo Upfront," the triumphant "Champions," and defiant "23." Since topping Billboard's Emerging Artists chart for a record-breaking 24 weeks in 2019, cracking the Billboard 200 top 10 with 2020's Top Shotta, and earning a spot on last year's Billboard 21 Under 21 list, his star has continued to rise.
However, NLE Choppa is not just a successful rapper. He is using his platform of over 35 million combined followers to inspire and advocate for the youth through his "NLE Reading Challenge," vegan & holistic lifestyle, and social activism. With "Ain't Gonna Answer" and Cottonwood 2, Choppa is ready to take his place at the pinnacle of hip hop.
Fans can pre-save the highly anticipated Cottonwood 2 album now to be among the first to hear the full collection of tracks. NLE Choppa is undoubtedly a force to be reckoned with in the rap game, and his latest release with Lil Wayne is a testament to his growing success and undeniable talent.
