Lil Durk decided to draw inspiration from Lil Wayne for his latest drop. On Friday (Nov. 10), the Chicago star dropped off a new single titled “Smurk Carter,” a Chopsquad DJ-produced effort that contains some of the rapper’s most vivid street rhymes to date.
“You know, money and power got the trenches united, got some members indicted over money and violence, I was raised in the jungle with snakes, rats, and some lions, now the Pellys for winters, dope boys, and giants, daddy took over the streets, Larry Hoover was my age, when weed was so cheap, sellin’ drugs off MySpace, I’m a gangster at heart, could stop a war with my face, mama, I said I’m sorry for puttin’ you through the mind games, Only The Family the Navy…”
“Smurk Carter” boasted a matching video courtesy of Durk’s go-to director, Jerry Production. The clip began with an appearance from Robert Shipp, a close family friend and fellow Illinois native that spent decades in jail for his alleged involvement in a drug conspiracy. “Real people from the hood, man, from the trenches, they deserve a second chance ’cause a lot of us got caught up in the motherf**kin’ math, with these people, man, just tryna lock us up for nothin’, you hear me?” he stated. Durk then delivered his bars at different locations with his crew alongside him.
“Smurk Carter” is expected to land on Only The Family’s upcoming compilation, Nightmares In The Trenches. Prior to that, the Midwest-based collective liberated Loyal Bros 2, a December 2022 release with 23 cuts and notable contributions from Doodie Lo, Future, Chief Wuk, BIG30, Booka600, Lil Zay Osama, and more.
