Con­scious rap­per Lil Nate announces his forth­com­ing EP ‘Hopes And Dreams’, and reveals the video to his lead single ‘200mg’, a track that pays homage to the golden era of Hip Hop. 

Hopes and Dreams’ is an oral illus­tra­tion of the ups and downs of street life and liv­ing on the poverty line. Through descript­ive lyr­i­cism and smooth deliv­ery, he por­trays a world that may be full of struggles but stands strong through hope and per­sever­ance. The lead single ‘200mg’ epi­tom­ises this sen­ti­ment. Through an elev­at­ing soul sample and ambi­tious lyr­ics, Lil Nate touches on his struggles faced grow­ing up and his drive to suc­ceed, not only in the music industry but also as a fath­er. 

Speak­ing on the pro­ject Nate says “There’s always gonna be people happy to see you fall rather than rise! But no mat­ter how dif­fi­cult or deep life can be, you just gotta keep mov­ing for­ward mak­ing sure you’re head­ing in the right dir­ec­tion with good inten­tions.”

Lil Nate is a Brix­ton-born, Irish-raised artist who takes inspir­a­tion from G‑Funk, Boom Bap, Afro-Beat, and Reg­gae. His lyr­ics delve into his upbring­ing, fam­ily val­ues, and unwaver­ing drive, which when paired with his unique cadence and laid-back flow, is an addict­ive listen.
