It would be categorically unjust to label Lil Berete as a member of the Top 200 rappers operating under the "Lil" prefix. Rest assured, the teenage sensation packs a mightier punch than many of the top-ranking members of that list. Since making waves in 2018 with the appropriately titled Icebreaker, Lil Berete has been forced to work outside his home estate of Regent Park in Toronto, the only locale for his video output, up to this point in his career. While he isn't directly involved in the municipal scrutiny over gun violence and hip-hop (completely unsubstantiated), the "cultural ban" has made him an outlaw in his own milieu.
So, on his latest video drop for "Goat Cheese," Berete linked up with noted videographer Kirx outside the boundaries of the Regent Park housing schematics, through no coincidence at all. Think about it: "Goat Cheese's" glossier finish does in turn, illustrates many of the changing dynamics he's undergone during this one-year stretch. Berete reflected on the level of scrutiny that comes with his sudden (Toronto) fame. "Police are trying to pull me over but I know what my rights are," he outlines right from the jump in the song's opening stanza. Nevertheless, as "Goat Cheese" goes onto illustrate in a palatable color scheme, Berete's 14 million global streams are just the start to what figures to be a prosperous future of the melodious rapper. Listed below are a series of Canadian concert dates Lil Berete has booked to coincide with this song's release. Enjoy!
