Lil Durk and J. Cole have the internet rocking with their new collaboration.
Earlier today (May 12), Durk dropped his single “All My Life” featuring the North Carolina-raised rapper. The lyrics, the setting, and the artists all contributed to social media qualifying the hit track as the song of the summer.
Before the single’s release, Durk spoke to Apple Music about his inspiration behind “All My Life” and wanting Cole to join the track, The Source reported. “I just feel like a positive vibe went up with Dr. Luke, you know what I’m saying?” he said regarding the single. “That’s the first song he played, and I just felt it, and I’m like, ‘Man, I want J. Cole on this.'” Durk shared he worked his way up to asking the “No Role Modelz” songwriter to do the feature. “And I made it happen,” he revealed.
The 30-year-old Chicago native also shared Cole is a rapper he highly respects. “He like one that I looked up to that give out a positive message too.” Regarding their verses on “All My Life,” Durk admitted to Complex Music the 38-year-old lyricist “smoked my a** on there first off. Barely. You know, that barely happens. Shoutout, J. Cole. Shoutout, Dr. Luke.”
