Paving his own lane with a bass-heavy and warped brand of trap, Lil Wop stands out in ATL’s new wave with his distorted beats and croaking vocals.
Providing the ideal visual representation of his monster movie trap, Lil Wop shares “Extensions,” his latest high-concept, horror-themed music video. Evoking such classic horror characters as Frankenstein and Michael Myers, Wop starts the video in suspended animation, floating in an aquatic chamber as scientists discuss his fate. As the music starts, Wop jolts to life, brandishing a firearm and unsettling his scientific observers. Produced by ChaseTheMoney, “Extensions” is a blown-out banger, with Wop croaking his way around aggressive stabs of synth bass. “Extensions” is the latest video from Wopavelli 4, Wop’s latest opus, which blends elements of trap, horrorcore, and metal.
Packed with eerie, mind-expanding beats from ChaseTheMoney, Brodinski, Digital Nas, Ayo, and others, Wopavelli 4 finds the young rapper stretching the limits of his voice, crafting clipped and distorted bangers, enhanced by his signature vocal fray. The tape features the previously released single “Hugh Hefner,” a bite-sized banger with a hedonistic video, which received an XXL premiere for its video in late July, as well as “Ghoul,” which dropped shortly afterward and has over 200k YouTube views. With Lil Wop holding down the mixtape’s 19 tracks, including highlights such as the menacing “Don’t Step On My Saint-Laurents” and the satanic “Cult,” and featuring an appearance from Big Adolf, Wopavelli 4 hits digital distributors courtesy of 1017 Eskimo/Alamo.
