Bravado and pride are common traits of top-performing Hip Hop recording artists. NLE Choppa showed off his self-confidence on social media this week.
On August 14, NLE Choppa took to the X platform to big up himself. The Memphis native’s 2023 run includes achieving commercial success with songs such as “S### Me Out,” “Do It Again” with 2Rare, and “Angel, Pt. 1” with Kodak Black, Jimin, JVKE, and Muni Long.
“I’M THE GREATEST. Y’ALL COUNTED ME OUT, NOW THEY LOST COUNT. I DO THIS TIME AND TIME AGAIN, HIT AFTER HIT, SONG AFTER SONG. DON’T PLAY WITH ME. BET NOT EVER TRY AGAIN. SHOW EM MY STREAMS MAMAMMMMAAA #ItsGettingHot,” posted NLE Choppa.
The 20-year-old rapper recently dropped his “It’s Getting Hot” single. That record is a remake of Nelly’s Hot 100 chart-topping single “Hot in Herre.” NLE Choppa even borrowed Nelly’s band-aid gimmick for the “It’s Getting Hot” video.
While Choppa’s “It’s Getting Hot” has found moderate success on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart (No. 49), one member of The Joe Budden Podcast slammed the song. Lamar “Ice” Burney expressed hatred for the new rendition.
“I hate this,” declared Ice. “I like NLE Choppa, I hate this is what I’m saying. I want everybody involved arrested. From top to bottom, everybody that was involved in this, I want y’all prosecuted… It didn’t do the classic justice.”
Earlier this year, NLE Choppa released his sophomore studio LP, Cottonwood 2. The album hosts “S### Me Out” and “Do It Again” as well as “Champions” and “Ain’t Gonna Answer” with Lil Wayne. Cottonwood 2 became Choppa’s third Top 10 entry on the Top Rap Albums chart.
