American rapper and singer has released a new track, “Grow Up / Keep It on Speaker”, off his eighth studio album, “7220.”
One of the preeminent rappers from the South Side of Chicago, Lil Durk set himself apart as a teenager in the early 2010s by tempering his raw lyricism with pop appeal — an approach that has proven to be influential in his hometown and subsequent distant scenes indebted to the city’s innovative drill movement.
Lil Durk has followed numerous mixtape releases through his Only the Family label/collective by affiliating with assorted major labels, boosting his commercial exposure with consistent high placements on the Billboard 200.
Durk’s albums range from 2015’s Remember My Name (which featured his first RIAA-certified gold single “Like Me”) and 2019’s Love Songs 4 the Streets 2 to 2020’s The Voice, the latter of which was his third straight Top Ten entry.
Among the dozens of tracks on which Durk is featured is Drake’s “Laugh Now Cry Later” (also 2020), a number two pop hit nominated for two Grammys: Best Rap Song and Best Melodic Rap Performance. A subsequent collaborative album with Lil Baby, The Voice of the Heroes (2021), went straight to number one.
2020 proved to be yet another prolific year for Durk, and he closed out the year with sixth studio album The Voice. Released in December, The Voice peaked at number three with featured guest appearances from King Von, Young Thug, and YNW Melly.
In June 2021, Durk and Lil Baby topped the Billboard 200 as a duo with The Voice of the Heroes.
