A melodic mastermind who boasts a legion of devoted fans who appreciate his lyrical honesty, Lil Durk is one of the brightest young stars from the South Side of Chicago. On “Goofy,” his latest single, Lil Durk embraces his new residence in Atlanta, abandoning the signifier’s of Chicago’s drill scene for a more trap-oriented approach. Produced by Southside of 808 Mafia, “Goofy” is a monstrous banger, with space-age synths, overwhelming bass, and a percussive hook from Future. Premiered by Complex, the single finds Durk, Future, and fellow guest rapper Jeezy excoriating and emasculating snitches and goofs with their machine-gun flows. “Goofy” is Durk’s first release since Supa Vultures EP, his collaborative project with fellow drill rap pioneer Lil Reese. Distributed by EMPIRE, Supa Vultures EP features the hit single “Distance,” recently featured in Complex’s Bout To Blow column, which has earned over 1.4 million views in its first month of release on YouTube, as well as the Durk solo track “Nobody Knows,” with a video premiered by Karen Civil.

Since moving to Atlanta from Chicago, Lil Durk has been quietly dominating the Hip-Hop landscape, collaborating with countless artists both established and on the come-up. Lil Durk most recently linked with Quavo & Lil Yachty for “Homie Bitch.” The OTF (Only The Family) spitter also made appearances on Young Thug’s EBBTG, Trae Tha Truth‘s Tha Truth 3, and Ralo x Gucci Mane‘s Ralo LaFlare. Durk’s February project Love Songs For the Streets featured YFN Lucci and Young Thug, as the 24-year-old honed a matured sound. Most recently, Durk returned to his roots with Lil Reese on Supa Vultures EP, making a compelling demonstration of the two rappers’ towering stature in the Chicago rap scene. “We [Vultures] don’t eat each other,” explains Lil Durk. “We eat other people and keep everything in the family. If you’re with us we call you a vulture and you’re our brother.” Supa Vultures EP is currently available to stream and purchase.
