Next week, NLE Choppa will release his highly-anticipated major-label debut, Top Shotta. To celebrate the announcement, the rapper has dropped a new single titled “Narrow Road” with Lil Baby. The track tells a story of pain and endurance, with Choppa detailing how his drug use began at a young age. “They tell me think smart, I know right from wrong/They say I’m going to get life with this dirty chrome,” Choppa sings. “Well, you would rather take a life before they take your own/And b*tch, I been through some shit, I come from a broken home.”
Choppa’s melodious cadence is balanced by Lil Baby’s flow. The personal track gives insight into what has shaped Choppa’s mentality today. “I got a different mentality, bitch, it’s kill or be killed,” he raps. “I’d rather kill a rat before I write a statement and squeal.” Lil Baby continues, “Road getting narrow, slimmer and slimmer/Pray to God that I forget, try my best not to remember/It’s a cold, cold world and I was born in December.”"Narrow Road” marks the first time the pair have officially collaborated on a track together and comes after Choppa released a remixed version of Lil Baby’s “Emotionally Scared,” called “Different Day.”
