How Sweet It Is: L Gwoppo Is Doing It ‘Sugar Hill Freestyle’ With New Single

L Gwoppo’s new single, ‘Sugar Hill Freestyle’, is a fine example of what to expect from the NYC artist, who is making a name for himself on the hip hop scene with his hard-hitting bars and gift for storytelling.

Released in early April this year, ‘Sugar Hill Freestyle’ is a strong and forceful rap single, saying exactly enough without saying to much, at just under 2 minutes long. L Gwoppo has been building his fanbase, with his high energy musical style appealing to many, as exemplified by the traction he’s been gaining.

L Gwoppo burst onto the scene with his 2021 track, ‘Focus’, which saw him established as a force to be reckoned with. With ‘Sugar Hill Freestyle’, he’s well on his way to adding to this.

Raw and affirmative, ‘Sugar Hill Freestyle’ tells the story of living life in Harlem’s Sugar Hill neighbourhood. Life is hard on the streets, but it’s real; L Gwoppo knows he’s in his prime, even if some people might want to try and write him off. He’s not going to stop – he’s staying alive on Sugar Hill.
