Drake Gave Chicago Rapper 600 Breezy Chance Of A Lifetime On "More Life"
Drake may have provided Chicago rapper 600 Breezy his big break on "More Life."
Drake is known for cosigning new acts. On More Life the rapper recruited the help of little known artists like Jorja Smith and South African producer Black Coffee. Chicago rapper 600 Breezy got the chance of a lifetime when Drizzy asked him to feature on" Lose You."
"We were just having a conversation and he just came out of nowhere like, 'I need that drop for More Life,'" Breezy told XXL. "It just came out the blue. I didn't even ask for it, and that's all I needed to hear. I just gave him a little voice-over right there, and that's what it was."
Breezy's is the voice you hear at the end of "Lose You." The 6 God reached out to him after he put out "Don't Get Smoked" -- a local banger in Chicago. He even played it on the sixth episode of OVO Sound Radio.
"That's how we first talked," Breezy said. “He sent me a clip of him going crazy to 'Don't Get Smoked,' gave me some inspiring words, and from there he shot me his number. I didn't even ask for it, he gave me his number and from there we been keeping in touch."
He said he first met Drizzy at a show in Atlanta in September 2015 and have remained friends since. After More Life, Breezy dropped a remix to Drake's intro "Free Smoke." Check it out below.
