Chicago’s Lil’ Bibby already has the streets and Internets buzzing with his handful of loosies. Despite the fact that the young’n didn’t even drop a full length mixtape until today, Bibby has gained a sizable buzz off his distinct voice, confident flow and street heavy lyrcs. He kept the guest appearances minimal and delivered just what the streets wanted. We definitely have our eyes on the kid.

Not familiar with YG Hootie? He’s one of Waka Flocka’s Bricksquad affiliates, and someone who also went to Centennial High in Compton.

K Dot is no stranger to collaborations over some street records, considering the last time we heard him was on Fredo Santana’s “Jealous.
