Since the release of his mixtape Just Cause Y’all Waited back in 2018, Lil Durk has been in go mode. Serving as a guest feature on a number of hits while perfecting his business practices with his OTF (Only The Family) merchandise, Durk is only going up from here on out. Today (May 8), the Chicago-bred rapper treats fans to his highly anticipated album Just Cause Y’all Waited 2.
Laced with 15 tracks in total, Durkio enlisted some promising guest features with ATL’s Lil Baby and Gunna, along with Chicago’s own G Herbo and Polo G. On Wednesday (May 6), he spoke with Forbes about JCYW2 and gave some business advice for upcoming rappers. He also discussed his logic on releasing the album during quarantine:
“My next project was going to be with Metro Boomin. We can’t really move forward because everybody’s in the house or social distancing,” he told the publication. “I’ve already got the music. The title is based off everybody waiting on Metro—Just Cause Y’all Waited 2. I think it’s just the best time because people are all ears.”
He added: “You see people on the ‘Gram, you see people on TikTok. It’s the best time for streaming at this moment. People don’t realize that, when you go back outside, the world could be moving so fast that they might overlook your music if you drop [then].”
Throughout the album, you’ll hear Durk doing what he does best. Everything from his wordplay and infectious flow to the production is pretty solid to say the least. Be prepared to hear more heat like this from the OTF general sooner than later.
