Lil Durk has-been mad consistent with new visuals and collaborations. Teaming up with two of the South’s hottest emcees, Lil Durk pledges his loyalty to his closest friends in “Downfall,” his latest video. Featuring appearances from Young Dolph and Lil Baby, who each contribute emotional and prideful verses in their own inimitable styles, the audio for “Downfall” already has over 113k plays on Spotify and over 500k combined YouTube views. In the stylish, black-and-white clip, Durk flexes with Baby and Dolph, while shining a spotlight on a child forced to provide for his family in the face of his mother’s drug addiction. The latest star-studded single from Signed to the Streets 3, “Downfall” follows the Future-featuring “
Lil Durk is having a busy 2018, marked by multiple mixtapes, a label change from Def Jam to Alamo, and a move from Chicago to Atlanta. In March, he released his first project since departing Def Jam, Just Cause Y’all Waited, an important transitional record for Durk. Praised by Pitchfork, who wrote “Lil Durk writes about Chicago the way Joan Didion once captured California,” Just Cause Y’all Waited features tracks such as the buzzing “1-773 Vulture,” a street remix to Logic’s hit single “1-800-273-8255” that reached the 9 million view mark on YouTube, and the Lil Baby-featuring lead single “How I Know,” which earned prominent placement on Spotify’s Most Necessary playlist. Featuring additional appearances from PartyNextDoor, Ty Dolla $ign, Gunna, and TK Kravitz, and with production from 808 Mafia and others, Just Cause Y’all Waited EP is a formidable appetizer for Signed to the Streets 3, due later this year. Lil Durk turned heads when he performed his hits in a prime time slot, and later joined Tee Grizzley onstage at the Rolling Loud Festival in Miami (catch a few clips from this performance and from backstage in the “Remembrance” video) and recently showed off his label signees with Lil Durk Presents: Only The Family Involved Vol. 1.
