LIL NUU LINKS WITH G HERBO FOR “WICKED INNA RAQ 2”
Lil Nuu has been making waves in the Chicago rap scene since last year with singles like “Wicked Inna RaQ,” “LaLa,” and “Up On Us” — today, he cements his spot in the scene with “Wicked Inna RaQ 2” featuring G Herbo. The single is a hard-hitting, streets-first anthem and earned Lil Nuu an important co-sign from the city: a verse from G Herbo, a hometown hero of his. The two pair perfectly on the song together with Nuu and Herbo in a lockstep cadence on their respective verses. In the video, Nuu and Herb head to Chicago and mob around the town with their crews.
