Lil Durk Wants to Motivate the Streets on New Track “Make It Out”
Three weeks after dropping the boastful track "Goofy" with Future and Jeezy, Lil Durk returns with "Make It Out," an uplifiting, Will-A-Fool-produced song about overcoming obstacles presented by life in the street. Listen to the exclusive XXL premiere below.
The song finds Durk, who released his Supa Vultures EP with Lil Reese last month, reflecting on his own life while encouraging people to squash petty beef and focus on the things that are most important. When he's not doing that, he's using his Auto-tune-laced vocals to half-sing about self-medicating.
"Two wrongs don't make a right/Get with your dog and make it right," Durk spits on the hook. "Looking for inspiration, pray for my generation/Fuck Trump them bitches racist, bought 'Raris just to race em'," he spits in his first verse.
Durk says the song is meant to be an inspirational one. "I just wanted to speak to the streets and give them motivation on making it out," Durk tells XXL. "Whatever situation they're in, know that they can make do and have a better life.
"This is just a loose song, I wanna keep giving my fans material while I'm gearing up for something big," reveals Durk. That something big? He didn't specify, but he did indicate he's dropping his Signed to the Streets 3 mixtape next.
