Chicago rapper Lil Romo released his new music video for his OGMicWill-produced new single “When I Was Down” today. The MilkyMadeIt-directed video is the first listen from Lil Romo’s forthcoming project. “When I Was Down” is available everywhere, watch the video HERE via The Programm/Empire.
“When I Was Down” touches on the bleak realities Romo once faced before rap changed his life trajectory, from the track’s opening line: this was back when I was down, it was hard for me to smile, I don’t like to beg that why I ain’t come around. The video features Romo connecting with Chicago’s youth while reminiscing on his stark upbringing.
