Fitting his sensual rhymes into slick melodies, Chow Lee is always upfront with his intentions. Sharing a new airy anthem, the Long Island native unveils swag it!,” one of his sexiest “sexy drill” anthems to date. Floating atop ethereal vocal samples, a smooth guitar lick, and skittering drill percussion, Chow unfurls a series of ambitious come-ons, confidently propositioning a potential side check and giving himself an X-rated new title. The explicit new single arrives with a performance video, hosted by Blockwork TV, in which Chow grabs a bite from his favorite local Chinese spot before delivering his impassioned verse.

“swag it!” is the latest in a series of singles, including“team effort!” and  “ready 2 live,” arriving in the wake of his recent album, Hours After The Club. Released earlier this summer, Hours After The Club is an addictive listen, radiating with the seductive charm that inspired Pitchfork to affectionately call Chow Lee the “horniest rapper out.” Hours After The Club is chock full of infectious melodies, as Chow’s natural bravado makes every X-rated flex feel natural. The tape is home to two new collaborations with his frequent running mate Cash Cobain: the quintessential “sexy drill” anthem “on behalf of the association,” and “full service,” a luxurious mix of drill, club, and cloud rap, featuring Chow’s close friend Lonny Love.

Hours After The Club is a worthy follow-up to 2 SLIZZY 2 SEXYhis 2022 collaborative project with Cash Cobain. Praised by Pitchfork and Rolling Stone, and earning “Best of 2022” distinction from UPROXXThe FADER, and more, 2 SLIZZY 2 SEXY combined the sample-heavy sound of the Bronx with the hard-hitting dance beats from New Jersey to change the face of the NYC drill scene. 2 SLIZZY 2 SEXY highlight “Vacant” was recently named the 73rd Best East Coast Rap Song of All Time by Rolling Stone. Chow recently reconnected with Cash on the sexy drill anthem Rump,” plus the Nelly-sampling “Not No Xanax 2” from Cash’s new album, and joined Wolfacejoeyy and Cash on the Pitchfork-approved “Weekend.”

Now striking out on his own, Chow Lee is on a mission to become the next King of New York. The “sexy drill” pioneer took his show overseas this summer, with performances at Rolling Loud Portugal, Rolling Loud Rotterdam, and Rolling Loud Germany, before he shut it down at Rolling Loud Miami during his own set and a guest appearance with Coi Leray. The NYC scenester has popped up at several events around the city, and made an appearance on Sexy Besties,” the first-ever single released by On The Radar Records.
