As of Sunday, rapper NLE Choppa has released his new mixtape “From Dark To Light” in celebration of his 18th birthday. In recent days the rapper has sought to go on a spiritual journey of sorts to transform himself coinciding with his own physical growth. It’s this theme that makes up the core of the mixtape.
Choppa had this to say on his vision for the mixtape: 11:11 is an important angel number where you make a manifestation/affirmation come true,” he said. “Every time I catch 11:11, I make an affirmation regarding my album. My birthday is 11/1. These are all angel numbers. The one in numerology represents new beginnings. So when I drop, new beginnings will form. It’s like walking through doors bigger than I can imagine.”
The mixtape opens with the song “Bryson” which serves as a symbolic baptism, cleansing Choppa of his sins and comes home to his roots. In the video for the son he puts on robes and travels throughout the neighborhood in Memphis that made Bryson become NLE Choppa. The mixtape also features INK & Big Sean.
