A legend in his own city for his inimitable blend of modern and classic West Coast music, King Lil G is L.A.’s people’s champ. Pondering his legacy, enjoying his present, and looking towards the future, King Lil G shares Eternal, his new album. Finding a middle ground between the tuneful gangsta sound of G-Funk and L.A.’s current snap, Eternal finds the 32-year-old rapper pondering his legacy, reflecting on his past transformed him into the person he is today–an established star and neighborhood hero. The work of a proud DIY craftsman–King Lil G had a hand in producing each of the album’s ten tracks and in directing each music video–Eternal finds the rapper born Alex Gonzalez hungry and eager to assume his rightful place on the national rap scene. The album boasts recently released singles such as the aggressive, HYPEBEAST-premiered “No Face No Ca$e” (2.4 million views on YouTube), the loyalty anthem “47 Deep” (1 million views), and the luxurious “Henny & Kush” (500k views). Furthering Lil G’s message of keeping up hopes under terrible circumstances, Eternal is available everywhere via EMPIRE. Enjoy this audio and video stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
Along with the new album, King Lil G shares “Been On,” a new video for a highlight from the project. “Been On” finds the AK Forty Seven Boyz chieftain shouting down haters from their perch at the top of the Cali rap food chain: “B*tches pullin’ up and I ain’t sent no invitation/Different type of hustles, I got different occupations,” rhymes Lil G. Filmed in crisp black-and-white, and directed by King Lil G himself, the video finds Lil G chilling in a garage with an all-white Wraith and two beautiful companions.
Watch Been On below:
Born in Los Angeles and raised by a single mother, Alex Gonzalez quickly learned how to provide for his family, earning by any means necessary. He found a better way to make a living when he turned full-time to rapping in the early 2010s, taking inspiration from 2Pac, NWA, Snoop Dogg, and the G-Funk movement. Devoted to his neighborhood, Lil G’s raps pushed a message of hope, using stories from his past to help illuminate a better path for the city’s youth. Now an established and respected figure in the L.A. rap scene, King Lil G musters a dedicated grassroots legion of fans, with more than 2 million followers across social platforms, 300 million views on YouTube, and 50 million streams on Spotify.
