Lil Durk is a 26 year old rapper, singer and songwriter from Chicago who has been setting speakers on fire with his newest release “Rockstar”.
Brought up in a violent neighborhood, Lil Durk’s family faced legal and financial implications that deeply influenced him both negatively and positively. Growing from personal legal troubles and focusing on his music, Lil Durk taught himself the basics by watching music videos. After the viral success of ‘Sneak Dissin’’ and ‘I’ma Hitta’, he decided to make a full time professional career as a musician and has been hustling ever since.
Continuing an acclaimed series of projects he started as a 21-year-old in 2013, Lil Durk officially announced Signed To The Streets 3, his upcoming project that’s dropping November, 2018 via Alamo/Interscope.
As a teaser for fans awaiting STTS 3, Durk shared “Rockstar,” an infectiously hard new single. Featuring popular and emerging artists alike, Signed To The Streets 3 is a coronation for Lil Durk, affirming his position as a major rap star and confirming his influence on a new generation of melodic street rappers. The upcoming album features new content as well as popular previously-released singles like “Spin The Block,” “Downfall,” and “Home Body”.
“Ain’t no love for the weak and if I die at night, bury me in my dreams.”
Aside from powerful lyrical content, the song has a very different feel with the addition of an electric guitar and compared to previous releases from Lil Durk “Rockstar” gives fans something fresh and powerful, proving he’s a dynamic individual.
