Lil Reese Drops First Song Since Being Shot, ‘Come Outside’: Listen


A week after surviving a near-fatal shooting in his hometown of Chicago, Lil Reese is back with a new song that chronicles the danger all around. The minimal "Come Outside" was reportedly recorded before the rapper (born Tavares Taylor) was shot in the neck in an unsolved shooting on Nov. 11 at a busy intersection in Country Club Hills, a South suburban Chicago neighborhood. 

"That boy scared, don’t come outside/ They throw rocks, they go hide,” he raps on the track that glides by on a spare beat and ominous piano refrain. “That ain’t how we rock up on my side/ It gonna be a homicide.” The tune also features the lines, "Pass to the bro, we flexin'/ F–k n—a know I get reckless/ B—h, I only rock Giuseppes/ And I can't rock no tight jeans/ 'Cause I can't tuck my weapon."

The drill rapper was listed in critical condition after the incident and discharged over the weekend, sharing his good fortune with his fans on Monday (Nov. 18). "Made 4 it Lifes a gamble I got hella luck," he wrote alongside a photo that shows off the surgical staples snaking up the front of his throat.
