The Chicago Rapper Follows Up Love Songs 4 The Streets 2 With a 15-Track Effort, Featuring Recent Singles Like “All Love,” “Viral Moment,” and “Chiraq Demons”
A master of melody and a vivid storyteller, Lil Durk is a titanic figure on the rap scene. Treating his patient fans to a supremely self-assured new album, Durk shares Just Cause Y’all Waited 2. Packed with the well-drawn characters, single-line stories, and earworm-y melodies for which Durk is famous, Just Cause Y’all Waited 2 expertly balances the Only The Family CEO’s emotional rap ballads with snarling “no auto” missives, presenting a picture of a mature emcee in complete control of his vast talents. The album boasts state-of-the-art production from CardoGotWingz, DY, Go Grizzly, Touch Of Trent, 12Hunna, and more, providing a diverse soundscape for Durk to deliver his brutally honest lyrics.
The sequel to 2018’s project Just Cause Y’all Waited, which featured Durk’s Gold-certified hit “Home Body,” JCYW2 boasts some powerful singles of its own, including the emotional anthem “All Love“ (over 7 million streams in just a month of release), recent single “Viral Moment,” all-star posse cut “3 Headed Goat“ ft. Lil Baby & Polo G, and the fiery “no auto” “Chiraq Demons“ ft. G Herbo. With an additional feature from Gunna, Just Cause Y’all Waited 2 is available everywhere via Alamo Records.
JCYW2 is Durk’s first project since the release of last year’s Billboard Top 5-charting Love Songs 4 The Streets 2, but that doesn’t been he hasn’t been busy. Earlier this week, Lil Durk released his edition of Audiomack’s Trap Symphony, in which he performed three of his biggest hits while accompanied by a small orchestra. Featuring renditions of recent smash “No Auto Durk,” the R&B-flavored hit record “Home Body,” and his 2013 breakout drill smash “Dis Ain’t What U Want,” the new Trap Symphony highlights Durk’s charismatic performing ability and strong sense of songwriting.
Last week, Durk announced a new merch drop for the upcoming album. Head to OTFGear.com to check out and buy hoodies, t-shirts, sticker packs, posters, socks, face masks, and other items.In late April, Durk hosted a meal drive to feed the frontline workers at Chicago’s Rush Hospital, partnering with local restaurant PHLAVZ to drop off meals at the hospital and make over 100 more meals available for pickup later that night. Later today, Durk plans to give back to his adopted hometown of Atlanta, donating masks and meals to health workers and at-risk communities.
Stealing the show on recent collaborations with Roddy Ricch, Lil Skies, and Lil Uzi Vert on the Hot 100-charting “No Auto,” Durk has asserted his position on hip-hop’s A-List in 2020. He recently starred in a nationally-televised commercial for Nike’s Air Jordan, advertising the Lyrical
