Today, Chicago’s rising star, Lil Zay Osama released the menacing new single “If It’s War,” alongside the accompanying visual via Warner Records. Shot by fellow Chicagoan, Diamond Visuals, the song’s mafia-style, cinematic video shows Zay and his men sticking up the bagman, while Zay raps over the hard-hitting production, giving insight into Lil Zay Osama’s meaning of war. 

“If It’s War” comes behind the release of Zay’s potent single, “Danny Block.” “Danny Block” had such a visceral fan reaction upon release, that Atlanta rapper Lil Baby was even caught vibing to the track on Instagram Live this week. “If It’s War” and “Danny Block” are both examples of Chicago drill at its finest and will be featured on Lil Zay Osama’s forthcoming mixtape, Trench Baby 2, coming soon.

In February of this year, Lil Zay Osama released his acclaimed mixtape Trench Baby as well as the follow-up deluxe edition, which featured Lil Tjay, G-Herbo, Sada Baby, Sheff G, Jackboy, Doeboy, and Stunna 4 Vegas and included an array of street hits from “Rumors,” “Ride for Me” (with Jackboy)” to fan-anthems “61st to 64th,” and “We’ll Be Straight.” A gifted storyteller and melodic virtuoso, Lil Zay Osama is able to maneuver between different moods from drill to trap ballads, earning him the praise of XXLPitchforkHipHopDXComplex and more. To date, Lil Zay Osama has accumulated countless views on YouTube and more than 200 million streams. With Trench Baby 2 on the horizon, he’s poised to continue his trajectory to superstardom.
