A Lil Durk protege with a supernatural skill for mining pathos out of street situations, Booka600 is the next Only The Family signee to hit the big time. Opening up about his day-to-day struggle in the hood, Booka shares “Let Em Know,” a new melodic street anthem. Produced by JTK, the new track finds Booka confronting his demons, declaring love for his 600 Crew brethren, and mourning his lost friends. Booka’s mentor and OTF label boss Lil Durk hammers home the theme with a soaring chorus, asserting that you can’t ever truly know what someone is going through. “Let Em Know” also features a guest appearance from rising Chicago star and recent Warner Bros. Records signee Lil Zay Osama, who works his auto-tuned higher register for an emotional anchor verse. “Let Em Know” follows the equally revealing single “War Scars,” which earned a Dirty-Glove Bastard premiere, and “Baguette Bandz,” Booka’s Phil Collins-sampling standout from the compilation mixtape Lil Durk Presents: Only The Family Involved Vol. 2. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
Boasting a roster packed with up-and-coming Chicago rappers such as OTF Ikey and King Von, whose breakout single “Crazy Story” earned over 27 million views on YouTube, Only The Family and Lil Durk are poised to dominate Summer 2019. Sharing a lyrical realism and skill with melody that endears them to their mentor Durk, the Only The Family vultures spread their wings on Only The Family Involved Vol. 2–OTF Ikey flashes his trap-happy hooks, King Von flashes a charismatic menace, Booka600 stretches his emotional muscles, and Doodie Lo snaps with carefully worded threats. Featuring guest appearances from Tee Grizzley and Sada Baby, Only The Family Involved Vol. 2 is available for stream and purchase via EMPIRE.
Stay tuned for Booka600’s upcoming project Word To LA. Dedicated to Booka’s close friend L.A., who recently passed away, Word To LA is slated to release in Spring 2019.
