Lil Mouse proved he’s truly about that life years ago when he was first introduced to us on his single “Get Smoked.” The young artist had just reached puberty when Lil Wayne remixed his track about violence and drugs. These days, hip-hop has spread more because of it’s appeal rather than genuine, lyrical content, and Lil Mouse feels it’s because people rap about a life they don’t live – like Slim Jesus, for example. “When I first saw the video, I ain’t really like it ’cause it was like he was joking about the situation,” Lil Mouse says about Slim’s super-viral track and video, “Drill Time.”
Earlier this week, Lil Mouse dropped “Kill Time,” a diss track aimed at Slim Jesus – or so we thought. According to him, the song “ain’t a diss” as he was merely “stating facts.” The 16-year-old drill rapper does admit, however, that he has yet to meet a person outside of Chicago who he feels is good at their style of rapping. He also feels people should never rap about things they have no knowledge of, especially since he’s lost nearly ten of his friends to the streets.
