Show Louis will tell you with the strongest stench of honesty that he’s done his fair share of dirt. He smokes to keep the pain away, he dodges all potential opportunities to fall back into the hands of the state, to feel the cold air of county jail or worse. He can replay images in his head with the kind of vivid detail that only the greatest of storytellers can build upon. Show Louis is a street rapper’s type of street rapper — and it’s a shame more people don’t recognize it.

“Mahailia,” a leak from his upcoming Love & Drugz mixtape not only profiles certain moments from his childhood but highlights his own misdeeds and how he’s been chasing demons ever since. Stream “Mahailia” in full below. Love & Drugz is due out in January.
