Rising Chicago rapper Lil Moe 6Blocka continues his hot streak with another speaker-rattling song and vivid video, “Nothin.” Listen HERE and watch HERE. The single arrives on the heels of recent hits like “Leave Em Stretched,” and the simmering street anthem “Risky” ft 22Gz.
The bass-heavy anthem is another example of Moe’s verbal dexterity and ability to turn witty phrases into stylish storytelling. He again takes aim at his opps, warning them to stay out of the way because he isn’t slowing down any time soon. The track is hypnotic and succinct, with Moe letting loose a barrage of bars before the beat fades. “Nothin” offers another view of Moe’s post-drill style, bruising but effortlessly floating with the practiced flow of a seasoned veteran.
The video, directed by Billy Kauck, finds Moe in his hometown of Chicago, cruising in a black-on-black car, spitting bars outside of the window. Though the car is flashy, Moe spends the video in an abandoned parking lot, shrouded in gray. The visual helps highlight Moe’s grit and hustle—taking moments to celebrate his come-up, but always returning to his roots. He’s alone and focused with a one-track-mind. He’s showing off the finer things in life, but he’s not letting anyone else get in his way.
“Nothin” is the latest in a string of exciting new releases from Lil Moe 6Blocka and another example of how the teen is capturing the imagination of his city. Thoughtful, intense songs like “Ion Know” have inspired tastemaking platforms like Lyrical Lemonade and Daily Chiefers to name Moeamong the region’s hottest rising rappers. The “Risky” remix with 22Gz won even more acclaim, garnering attention from HotNewHipHop, Uproxx, and STUPIDDOPE. HipHopDX even called the original version of “Risky” one of “the best hip-hop songs of 2021.”
Lil Moe is the voice of a new generation in Chicago—a bridge between the drill scene of the 2010s and the next crew of superstars primed to take over the Windy City. He’s been surging through the streets garnering millions of views on his videos. With songs like “Nothin” out and more on the way, Moe clearly has no intentions of letting up anytime soon.
