18-year-old masked rapper SL burst onto the global stage at just 15 — his “Gentleman” video garnered over 35 million views and he’s been wearing a ski-mask ever since. A lot has changed over the past three years. Not only has SL become a better rapper, but he’s tapped major producers and even earned a co-sign from Drake. Now SL has returned with a new single helmed by Kenny Beats with “Little Bird,” following the duo’s “Bad Luck” collaboration from May.

SL’s flow is incredibly laid-back. His charisma as an emcee can be derived by just how casual he delivers each bar in a matter-of-fact cadence. Pair that with Kenny’s ongoing hot-streak as a producer and “Little Bird” is hard to deny. The visual, directed by Oliver Jennings, follows SL on-top of a pearl white Tesla in a sheep pasture. He drives through the countryside as a plane flies a Black Lives Matter banner overhead. The video is the last offering before SL drops his SELHURST SE25 project tomorrow, July 3.

Watch SL and Kenny’s “Little Bird” video above and stream the new track below. In more music updates, Jorja Smith spotlights the Black Lives Matter protests with her new visual for “Rose Rouge”.
