EDITORS’ NOTES

A Mexican rapper out of Inglewood, Calif., Lil G appeared in the early '00s and later released The Underground Chapter 1, followed by Hood Money and the Blue Devil mixtapes. With an assist from Big Downer, he returns for Part 2, continuing his standard-issue slow-flow West Coast gangsta-rap approach. The production is solid and funky enough, with big drums, watery keyboards, and thick bass lines while Lil G sounds off about the usual subject matter: violence ("Gunz in My Neighborhood"), hometown pride ("Love LA"), and the mystical power of females. Definitely nothing that hasn't been done a million times before, but if you just can't get enough Cali G tales, it's worth a listen. Most intriguing is the diss track "Letter to Dr. Dre," where he basically calls out the man most responsible for making gangsta rapper a potential career choice in the first place.

About King Lil G

The classic sound of rapper King Lil G is easily described by the title to his 2015 album -- '90s Kid -- and his allegiance to his hometown of Inglewood, California. Originally known as Lil Gangster, the rapper debuted his N.W.A.- and Snoop Dogg-influenced style in 2006 via the PR Records label. His 2011 effort, Blue Devil, Pt. 2, found him on the Double 9 Records imprint, the same label that released his 2012 LP King Enemy. In 2014, he landed on MIH Entertainment for the album AK47 Boyz, which featured the single "Hopeless Boy." The '90s Kid album arrived a year later and featured the single "Grow Up." In 2016, the MC turned down a major-label offer and signed with the indie imprint Del Records. ~ David Jeffries
