NLE Choppa just celebrated his 18th birthday yesterday (Nov. 1), and decided what better way is there to celebrate another trip around the sun than with a new project. The new mixtape From Dark To Light is introduced with an intimate message from Choppa himself, explaining his intentions with the project and how it serves to bring listeners along with him on his spiritual journey:
“From Dark to Light. In this project I’ll be explaining the truth, I restore, but at the same time, embracing my growth. The dark side of me, the violent side of me, but as I’m showing the growth to my spiritual self, the light within, it shine bright to the outside of me. Once you realize your thoughts are reality, and fill your thoughts with positivity, and then it begins to change.”
Back in August, the Memphis rapper dropped his full-length project Top Shotta, which saw features from Mulatto, Lil Baby, Roddy Ricch, and Chief Keef. Singles we’ve heard from Choppa include the aforementioned “Narrow Road” featuring Lil Baby, “Walk Em Down” with Roddy Ricch, “Ruff Rydas” from the Road To Fast 9 mixtape, and “Memphis, Pt. 2” by AG Club with A$AP Ferg.
Coinciding with the theme of the new project, NLE Choppa has been open about the practices he has implemented into his life to bring forth the positive changes. He delved into it a bit further when REVOLT caught up with him in a recent interview, where he shared some gems about his affirmations:
“Whenever you need that peace or time to yourself, that’s what meditation is for. I started reading books too, it slows your mind down. Writing in a journal, I keep a journal with me and write down stuff I want to achieve. I was too worried about the future and the past. The future causes anxiety and the past causes depression. You have to live in the present moment. Keep in that present moment, attract all the right stuff towards you, think the right way. Once your intuition changes, it’s over with.”
