Chicago artist Lil Romo drops debut project King Without A Crown
Chicago rapper Lil Romo recently released his debut project, King Without A Crown via The Programm/Empire.
On the 13-track body of work, featuring production from Kid Wonder, All Day, OG Mic Will and more, the Chicago newcomer tells his story the only way he knows how, through genre bending melodies and thought provoking lyrics.
Released at a time when Chicago sees its most violent month in 28 years, with over 2000+ shootings so far in 2020, King Without A Crown is Lil Romo’s ode to his violence wrought city.
“Wishing shit was different, nowadays we can’t have any fun,” Lil Romo raps on his latest single and video, “Long Time,” reflecting on his surroundings.
The new track and video comes behind his latest single “223” and the project’s first single, “When I Was Down” (nearly 500K views) released in April.
Romo’s unapologetic storytelling has garnered the attention of an active audience. He burst onto the scene in early 2019 with the release of the street anthem “Let’s Do It,” which has clocked in over 1M views on YouTube to date. With follow up hit “Move For Me” at half a million views and all recent releases amassing hundreds of thousands of hits in mere days, Chicago newcomer Lil Romo’s trajectory is true to his position at the #1 spot on Chicago media outlet WhatsTheWord’s 2020ArtistToWatch list.
