Lil Durk unveils new album, Durkio Krazy, produced by 808 Mafia's DY, shares title track

Newly relocated to Atlanta after honing his street melodicism on the South side of Chicago, drill sergeant Lil Durk is back with a new album produced in full by 808 Mafia’s DY, titled Durkio Crazy. When does it come out? Where can you get it?? Who knows! But he’s officially announced the album’s existence by dropping its very in-his-lane title track, “Durkio Crazy,” which unsurprisingly suggests that the album will be more HNDRXX than FUTURE — more about major key brilliance and laid back reflections on love and success than out-thugging the next street artist.

The song charts Durk’s rise out of the bloody Chitown streets to the Buckhead party life. “Came from nothing,” he sings, “who’d have thought we’d get paid for shows?” But to suggest that this is luck or happenstance would be to gloss over young Master Durk’s insane work ethic; one needs only scroll through his Soundcloud feed to see just how many days he’s spent in the studio over the last couple of years. The payoff, it seems, is tangible. “I was desperate for sex,” he says at one point during “Durkio Crazy.” But now? “I don’t get rejected.” Amen, Durkio Crazy. Amen.
