He’s known for his melodic mastery, but Lil Durk unleashes his rawest lyricism when he ditches software and raps. Today, Durk announces the long-anticipated No Auto Durk, executive produced by Metro Boomin, coming soon.
Providing a gift for fans who clamored for a project with less singing and more rhyming (his 2018 single “No Auto Durk” has more than 44 million views on YouTube), “No Auto Durk” finds the 27-year-old Only The Family label boss proving his mettle as an emcee, flexing his myriad flows over atmospheric trap and sinister drill beats. On Friday, as the NBA prepared to celebrate All-Star Weekend in his hometown of Chicago, Durk unveiled two Billboards beside the city’s Dan Ryan highway, announcing the album and his Metro Boomin co-sign. No Auto Durk arrives later in 2020 via Alamo Records.
Along with the project announcement, Lil Durk recently starred in a brand new, nationally-televised commercial for Nike’s Air Jordan. Advertising the brand’s new collaboration with Chicago’s own Lyrical Lemonade and Cole Bennett, the Lyrical Lemonade x Jordan Aerospace 720, the commercial finds Durk showing off his basketball skills while decked head-to-toe in colorful LL-branded merch. Long known for having the sweetest jumpshot in the rap game, Durk is the ideal ambassador for this cultural crossover event.
