King Louie Didn't Know Kanye West Is A Fan, Louie responds to 'Ye's shout-out on G.O.O.D. Music's 'I Don't Like' remix: "It was crazy" [Video]

It isn't just a Chicago thing anymore — just ask King Louie. There was a time when 24-year-old Louis Johnson was just making music for fans within his native city's borders, but in the past year, the Eastside Chi-town MC has seen his name spread like wildfire. A well-timed Kanye Westplug only fanned the flames.

"I was coming from the dentist, he had gave me all those meds, so I was kinda out of whack," Louie told Mixtape Daily of when he first heard Yeezy name-check him on the G.O.O.D. Music remix to Chief Keef's underground riot starter "I Don't Like."

"Shout-out to L.E.P., J Boogie, right?/ Chief Keef, King Louie, this is Chi, right?" 'Ye spits on the souped-up remix, which hit the Web last week on May 1.

"It was crazy, because you don't think them type of guys on that level hear your music just coming from the hood," Louie said of his surprise during an L.A. interview three days after the song dropped.

Though Louie plays humble, it has been increasingly difficult to ignore his musical output. His 2011 track "Too Cool" has been consistently buzzing thanks to its infectious hook and polished music video. It also doesn't hurt that he joined forces with Kanye's former manager John Monopoly about eight months ago.
