With an entrancing croak of a voice that helps him stand apart from and above the crowd, ATL’s Lil Wop pushes trap music to its limits. Unleashing a demonic vocal performance, Lil Wop takes a stab at horrorcore with “Deathnote,” his latest single.
Issuing death warrants above droning bells and subterranean bass, Lil Wop delivers his detractors a final warning, accompanied by sampled quotes from the classic horror film Child’s Play. Directed by Paul John of Midnight Cinema, the “Deathnote” video finds Wop presiding over a dinner party where the guests have been violently killed, rhyming from his whip and his throne, pondering who shall live and who shall die.
“Deathnote” is the latest single in the lead-up to Wopavelli 4, Wop’s upcoming mixtape hitting digital distributors on August 10th via 1017 Eskimo/Alamo.
