Following the release his debut album Top Shotta and his appearance on the 2020 XXL Freshman Class cover, Memphis rapper NLE Choppa completes his victory lap with a passionate performance of his album’s closing track “Depression” for UPROXX Sessions.
The 17-year-old rapper’s performance may surprise longtime fans who know him from high-energy tracks like “Walk ‘Em Down” and “Top Shotta Flow,” as he taps into a moody vein of introspective crooning for “Depression.” As Choppa reflects on his early years and lost friends, he employs a singsong flow that showcases his growth as an artist since his star-making single “Top Shotta” made him one of the artists to watch throughout 2019 and early 2020.
