Today, Atlanta rapper Eldorado Red drops the video for his track “Chapo Freestyle,” off his upcoming album The Return of Shawty Guzman 2, due out June 15. Produced entirely by Zaytoven (Gucci Mane, Usher, Migos), the 13-track project gets its title from Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, who is also known as “shorty.”
Eldorado Red was intrigued by how Guzman climbed the ladder of success via criminal activities. “I was one of the first rappers to incorporate El Chapo into my songs,” Eldorado Red says. “I have a whole mixtape series with the whole Chapo story. Unlike Mr. Guzman, I didn’t break out. I got out for legal reasons, and just as a blessing from God.”
