Lil Reese season is upon us. Today (Oct. 15), the Chicago rapper announces his Normal Backwrds EP, a six-track project that he’s dropping this Friday (Oct. 19). He’s also shared a cover and tracklist for the new EP.
The cover for Normal Backwrds, which is arriving well over a year after Reese teamed with Lil Durk to drop their Supa Vultures EP, features an image of the Grim Reaper with a darker skull. Surrounding the reaper, who, of course, is gripping his scythe tightly, is a pitch black background. We’re betting the cover will match the theme of Reese’s new project.
Echoing the vibe of Reese’s new EP cover is “Stop That,” a new song and visual the rapper released last week. Featuring some ominous percussion and bells, the beat for the track is a menacing one. Reese takes that feel and channels it through some hardbody lyrics.
“Keep a few thorough niggas with me/Most niggas gon’ fake it to the tee/Play games get put up on a tee/I don’t want a goofy riding with me,” Reese spits on the track.
The visual for “Stop That” finds Reese roaming a junkyard with his new song is his soundtrack. He isn’t doing much, but its an appropriately straightforward accompaniment for a song about being thorough.
