♫♪  Sicko Mobb - “Be With Me”

Bop is a total candy-fed blast from popsicle positivists in a splintered culture of drill and violence. It’s strength in an otherwise destructive environment. Bop is beautiful.

And arguably the most recognizable name in bop world Sicko Mobb (a.k.a. Lil Ceno and Lil Trav) are bringing summer to the city. They’re young and international and dropped the upbeat Super Saiyan Vol. 1 late last year, after inking a deal with Sony and capping a two-year span where Chicago took over the media for a variety of reasons.

Now they’re prepping Super Saiyan Vol. 2 and premiered a jam on the new DJ Moondawg-hosted We Invented the Bop mixtape. Titled “Be With Me,” Sicko Mobb’s newest super-pop ballad leads off another compilation from the growing future-first bop movement that features return acts SBE, Lil Chris, I.L Will, and newcomer/Vol. 2 standout Yemi Marie.

I hope Arthur C. Clark foresaw bop but decided to play it cool all those years, only to release its power postmortem. Kinda like the final stories of Salinger’s Glass family.

Man, I wish I could bop.
