Rapper NLE Choppa is returning to Israel this summer for a May 3 performance, his second visit following two sold-out shows in Tel Aviv last summer.

Named at birth Bryson Lashun Potts, the 20-year-old rapper rose to fame with his 2019 single “Shotta Flow,” which went viral with more than 90 million streams on YouTube.

The Memphis, Tennessee-based NLE Choppa is known for his combination of hard-hitting rap and melodic singing, heard in his debut EP, “Cottonwood,” released in 2019, as well as his debut studio album “Top Shotta.”

He’s also known for embracing meditation and going vegan, as well as for promoting literacy and education and raising awareness about social justice issues, particularly following the murder last month of Tyre Nichols by Memphis police.

Tickets for the May 3 show go on sale Thursday, February 23 at 8 p.m., and start at NIS 299.
