NLE Choppa‘s latest album “Me vs. Me” is finally out.

Me vs. Me, the 16-track album, was delayed several times before finally being released. Listeners’ patience has been rewarded with NLE Choppa’s best project to date, which has unquestionably lifted the standard this week.

Choppa invited fellow Memphis heavyweight Moneybagg Yo to join him on their debut song, “Too Hot,” which came with similarly sizzling visuals, ahead of the project’s release.

The visuals for “Shotta Flow 6” are included in Me vs. Me.

Choppa gained fame with the tremendous success of his song “Shotta Flow” in 2019, and he kept the momentum going by delivering similarly energizing singles like “Camalot,” which had an incredible visual from none other than Cole Bennett and Lyrical Lemonade.

Taking a break from rapping to focus on his health and herbalism, Choppa has progressed in the music business and is now back to providing the high-energy bars that drove him to his current position.

NLE Choppa’s new album Me vs. Me is, as the term suggests, a debate with oneself in which music serves as the medium.

Along with previously released fan favorites like Polo G’s “Jumpin” and Moneybagg Yo’s “Too Hot,” NLE Choppa collaborates with Young Thug on “Push It” and crosses state lines with G Herbo on “Chicago to Memphis.”

The new album Me vs. Me is a blend of all the young rapper’s innermost thoughts, wishes, and demons.

Choppa’s objective for the record is to continue to improve his craft while competing with his former self. And he succeeds in doing so, generating a body of work that has its ups and downs but is well-balanced with enough high-powered bangers to cover up its flaws.

The young rapper kicks off the sixth edition of his “Shotta Flow” series with a bang, spouting couplets in fast succession over CashMoneyAP’s production, weaving genuine threats among flashes of his luxury.

Choppa went on The Breakfast Club earlier this week to discuss his growth as a person and artist, as well as his apparent rivalry with rapper NBA Youngboy.

“I made certain comments because of my brother Von. That’s what I made a comment on. Defending his name, because he’s not able to defend his name. One of the things I hate is when a person isn’t here to defend their name.” 

In a video from DJ Akademiks’ Off The Record podcast conversation with NLE Choppa, which appeared on his YouTube channel on Tuesday (Jan. 25), the Memphis rapper acknowledged King Von.

Choppa also said that following Von’s death in November 2020, he assisted Lil Durk in grieving appropriately and without taking revenge for the Chicago rapper’s murder.

“He my brother, too,” Choppa added. “After the shit happened with Von and all that shit was happening, bruh, I was the one really in bro’s ear like, ‘I don’t want to be this person in your ear to say let that shit chill, don’t move on it.'” 

“But bruh, I’ma be there personally to let you know, bruh, that this cycle we in as Black men is a never-ending cycle,” Choppa said. “’Cause at the end of the day, bruh, we one person. We got one conscious mind.” 

NLE Choppa’s 16-track album, Me vs. Me, features Young Thug, G Herbo, Polo G, and Moneybagg Yo and you can listen to it below.

The Memphis spitter is his only competition.
