Lil Mouse might be joining forces with your favorite record label.
This past July, we caught wind of the music of Chicago’s Lil Mouse, who at the age of 13 (!) released a ridiculous video for his single, “Get Smoked.” Since then, the youngster has released a new boost of attention thanks to Lil Wayne’s Dedication 4 mixtape. Weezy hopped on “Get Smoked” and kept Mouse’s rhymes intact, which introduced the kid’s music to thousands.
Today, we caught some rumors that Mouse’s affiliation with YMCMB had gone beyond a mere mixtape feature. Lil Mouse’s reps tell us that he is “in negotiations with Birdman and several other labels.”
And now…more from Hip Hop Wired:
One of his songs, “Get Smoked,” grabbed more than 300,000 views on YouTube, and finds the teen degrading himself, and the craft he aspires to succeed in. “F-ck around and get smoked/I’m rollin’, all my n-ggas rollin’,” he raps. From there the youngster talks about doing drugs, and other activities. “Rollin off a pill, p-ssy bad it’ll kill, my n-ggas in the field, you might get killed…pancake a– n-gga I keep this sh-t real.”
TheGrio caught up with one of Mouse’s manager, Dough From Da Go, who brushed off the lyrics. “He has stuff like that. It’s just one song,” he said. “He does have other records. The music will speak for itself. He still has the mind frame of a kid. We are not going to follow in anyone’s footsteps though. We are going to break barriers.”
His music has drawn comparisons to that of Chief Keef, Lil Reese, and the late Lil JoJo, who was shot and killed days after a video of an altercation with the aforementioned Chicago rappers was posted online. JoJo’s murder remains unsolved, but Keef was looked at for potentially being involved after he tweeted jokes about his rival’s death.
And now…get familiar with Lil Mouse and his smash hit “Get Smoked.”
This is EbenGregory.com…telling you some people will see this and say, “He’s 13 doing the money dance and I’m 21 not doing the money dance. I’m jealous. Lol.” Some people will see this and say, “Chicago sh*t.” Some people will see this and say, “Where are his parents?” But when I see it…here’s what I’d say. And I’ma say it like I’d preach it. “I bind the influence of this music, in the name of Jesus! Lord God I pray that YOU would give this child an experience with YOU and that YOU would place Godly influences in his life. I bind the plans & tricks of the enemy over this child’s life & pray that YOU and YOUR WORD would become real in his life. I pray that YOU would take this talent and use it to YOUR glory, in the Mighty Name of Jesus! YOUR will be done! I bind ungodly music & it’s influence in our streets, our communities & the lives of our children. Amen.” (Drake voice)
