Late last week, Chicago rapper Dreezy dropped new heat: her sophomore album, Big Dreez, which has arrived three years after her full-length debut, No Hard Feelings.
It’s clear from the outset that Dreezy isn’t messing around. She starts out strong and cocky, loading “Chicken Noodle Soup” with trash-talking bars: “Pull in Neiman Marcus right before I spark it / Let the valet park it then I hit Chanel / LA regardless, all my haters garbage.”
Big Dreez features a coterie of talent both on the mic and behind the laptop: Kash Doll, Offset, Jeremih, Jacquees and Derez De’Shon pop up as guests, while the likes of London on da Track, Pi’erre Bourne, Southside and Take a Daytrip contribute production.
This new record is plenty impressive, but Dreezy’s not complacent. She aims to make herself stand out from other Windy City rappers by “trying to master all of the sounds as far as R&B and rapping [go]” and speaking to “girls in Chicago and around the world about what I’m going through,” she told Billboard.
She’s got a lot to say—and we’re here for it. Stream Big Dreez below.
