Booka600 Announces His Return With A New OTF Infused Project

Word To LA Is Available For Preorder–Project Releases On All Platforms June 28

06.07.2019

The Announcement:

Chicago native and rap maven Booka600 carries the OTF torch as he prepares for the release of his second album, Word to LA. The 12 track album is an emotional dedication to Booka’s close friend who passed away In 2013. Booka’s 2018 debut album, Six Summers chronicled the rapper’s strenuous journey as he overcame a raw street lifestyle. Word To LA will be an exciting follow-up, mixed with the same explicit emotions Booka has infused into his music. In recent months, Booka shared “Ok Ok Ok” and “War Scars” both of which feature intricate lyricism atop flaring vibrant melodies. With features from Lil Durk, Tee Grizzley, King Von, Yung Mal, and JusBlow600, Word to LA is a testament to the close-knit brotherhood that is OTF, Lil Durk’s label imprint. The album is currently available for pre-order and will hit streaming platforms on June 28.

Booka gave his personal insight on the album: “This project is about me really telling my bro who passed away what’s been going on and what’s up with life right now. It’s me giving him and the fan’s instructions on what’s going on in my world and how I move. LA and the fans are kinda like the same thing so I want them to have an update on what’s going on in my life. This whole project is dedicated to LA. He’s my best friend who I lost in 2013. We started rapping and going to the studio together every day. I’m a full-time rapper and illustrator now. I came a long way so the tone of the project is deep because of his loss but a little celebratory. I’m letting him know what’s going on with me and a few of the other guys. I’m a sincere and conscious mind but like life is taking a toll right now and it’s not easy. So it’s all about being smarter, making the right decisions, and moving the right way.”

Boasting a roster packed with up-and-coming Chicago rappers such as OTF Ikey and King Von, whose breakout single “Crazy Story” earned over 22 million views on YouTube, Only The Family and Lil Durk are poised to dominate Summer 2019. Sharing a lyrical realism and skill with melody that endears them to their mentor Durk, the Only The Family vultures proved themselves as talents to watch on December 2018’s label compilation tape Lil Durk Presents: Only The Family Involved Vol. 2—OTF Ikey flashes his trap-happy hooks, King Von flashes a charismatic menace, Booka600 stretches his emotional muscles, and Doodie Lo snaps with carefully worded threats. Featuring guest appearances from Tee Grizzley and Sada Baby, Only The Family Involved Vol. 2 is available for stream and purchase via EMPIRE.

Booka600 Background:

“I don’t rap like where I come from. In my hood, everybody raps a certain way. I prefer storytelling,” says Booka600. A product of the Washington Park neighborhood in Chicago’s South Side, the artist on Lil Durk’s Only The Family roster has a story to tell, and the wisdom to make it compelling. “I really started music when I was incarcerated. I thought about it and realized that I didn’t want to rap about violence. I wanted to be a motivational artist to change the thought process. Even if you are in the gutter or you are in the trenches, you still need some type of motivation. ‘Cause I was the same person in jail. I wanted to give the people hope.”
