After Chief Keef caught the eyes and ears of the masses this spring with “I Don’t Like”, a magnifying glass was placed over Chicago’s emerging “drill” scene. Riding shotgun on “I Don’t Like”, Lil Reese was the next to catch some major looks, releasing his debut mixtape and, most recently, having his song “Us” remixed by Rick Ross and Drake. Next up looks to be Lil Durk, who secured a Def Jam deal alongside Reese this past spring. A short stint in jail on gun charges kept Durk from getting the same amount of initial attention as his GBE counterparts, but with the recent official release of his single “L’s Anthem” and his Life Ain’t No Joke mixtape scheduled for release on October 19, it’s about time you get to know Lil Durk. —Neil Martinez-Belkin(@Neil_MB)

Lil Durk’s rise is taking him from the Windy City to the South Bronx. While sitting down with Vlad TV, Durk revealed that he’ll be a part of both French Montana’s next studio album and the next Coke Boys project. Along with that, Durk also said he will be releasing the sequel to Signed To The Streets instead of a debut studio album.

During the interview, Durk revealed that Signed To The Streets 2 will feature “damn near everyone” and that he has a solid ten songs recorded with Montana.Peter Walsh
