NLE CHOPPA DROPS ‘FROM DARK TO LIGHT’ MIXTAPE ON HIS 18TH BIRTHDAY

Today, at 11:11am CST, Memphis’ most dynamic rising star NLE Choppa released his new mixtape, From Dark to Light, on No Love Entertainment/Warner RecordsChoppa is also sharing an enthralling coming of age video for the set’s first single, “Bryson,” a bass-heavy banger that finds him mulling the trials and tribulations that fuel the project. This new tape, his most conceptual work to date, and the accompanying visual show a newly contemplative side to the ever evolving rapper, a welcome shift in his sound as he continues to mature in the spotlight. 

“11:11 is an important angel number where you make a manifestation/affirmation come true,” NLE Choppa shares. “Every time I catch 11:11, I make an affirmation regarding my album. My birthday is 11/1. These are all angel numbers. The one in numerology represents new beginnings. So when I drop, new beginnings will form. It’s like walking through doors bigger than I can imagine.” 

Choppa chose his 18th birthday to release From Dark to Light, which feels fitting for a project that looks back on the road he’s traveled to become one of rap’s most exciting new talents. Therein, Choppa grapples with dark thoughts and emotions, embarking on a spiritual journey that leads to hope and light. By the end, he emerges as a more confident vocalist, songwriter, and stylist than ever before. Cuts like “Paradise” and “Done” showcase his newfound focus on self-improvement and joy along with a melody-heavy delivery and intricate, thoughtful bars. Other standouts include “Moonlight” featuring Big Sean, the highly-anticipated “Body Catchers,” and “Picture Me Grapin’,” which is a remake of hip-hop legend 2Pac‘s “Picture Me Rollin’.”

Meanwhile, the “Bryson” video, directed by BenMarc, finds Choppa draped in robes and surrounded by nature, offering a tour of his Memphis neighborhood. Choppa’s on-camera presence is magnetic, blending swagger and confidence with relatability. Watch it HERE.
