Drake made a tour stop in the Chi a couple of weeks ago (two sold out nights at the Chicago Theater), and while on stage he shouted out who he thought was part of the “new cycle of hip-hop”. Of course, Drake mentioned the obvious – Wiz Khalifa, Kid Cudi – but then claimed Chicago’s next up were the L.E.P. Bogus Boys. That’s about as real as it gets.
In other Low End Professional news, yesterday, Global Grind named L.E.P. Bogus Boys #3 on their list of “Rappers You Need To Know”, alongside Curren$y, Vado, J. Cole, Big K.R.I.T. and others.

Why They Are Great New Rappers: Chi-Town’s L.E.P. Bogus Boys harken back to the days of great rap groups like Mobb Deep and the Lost Boyz – they tackle the same “gangsta” subject matter in an interesting, lyrical way and have great production. Their profile has risen a lot in the past few months and with good reason, they’re making some of the best rap music of anyone right now.
