Art often imitates life. Lil Gotit knows this as well as anybody. “You got to do it physically to be able to talk about it on a song,” says the 22-year-old, who named his recently released third album, The Cheater.
“I’m not going to cap,” Gotit admits while discussing the inspiration behind his latest project’s title. “I been a cheater. I never been a person to hold a relationship for a long time. I’ve always cheated. In like every relationship I cheated.”
An ode to Gotit’s cheating ways, The Cheater shows that some habits are just difficult to break. The 19-track project, however, isn’t only a playbook on how to successfully juggle multiple romantic relationships. According to Gotit, the album featuring noteworthy singles like the Ty Dolla $ign & Lil Keed-assisted “Rich Sh*t” and “Take Care” with Toosii and Millie Go Lightly displays his growth as a budding rap star.
“This project is just me leveling up,” he states. “I used to be a mumble rapper. I used to slur my words just because I used to be high type shit. But now you can really fully hear my words. I just go harder and harder each time.”
If the third time is really the charm, the time is now for Gotit. And the Alamo Records signee doesn’t plan on wasting any of it. Even though he just released The Cheater, he’s already on to the next. “I got more shit coming soon,” he promises. “We flooding this shit.”
