11.9.2018

Critical Praise:

“Unshackled from any kind of outline, Durk’s pen game shines. His rise was dotted with blood-soaked tales that summarized much of drill’s appeal: ground-level glimpses at Chicago’s South Side that colored in the outline offered by grim murder statistics.” –Pitchfork

“Lil Durk continues to be one of the most consistent rappers out.” – The FADER

“the rose that blossomed from the concrete of Chi-Town’s drill music scene” – Billboard

The Album:

Growing from a hero on the Chicago streets to a hip-hop household name, Lil Durk commands a loyal legion of fans with his melodic and poignant songwriting. Culminating a meteoric rise that transcends regions and trends, Durk shares Signed to the Streets 3his first studio album since 2016’s Lil Durk 2XA continuation of a series that began with Durk’s 2013 breakout mixtape Signed to the Streets, released when he was 21-years-old, 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. Drawing guests from across hip-hop’s generational and geographical spectrum, Durk welcomes them all into his world in STTS 3, providing stark perspectives of street life with a strong emotional center, enhanced by Durk’s superlative sense of melody. Featuring additional guest spots from Kevin GatesTy Dolla $ign, Kodak Black, and A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Signed to the Streets 3 releases via Alamo/Interscope, and already finds itself at #6 in Apple Music’s all-genre album charts within the first 12 hours of release.

The new album gives a home to popular previously-released singles like the Future-featuring “Spin The Block,” which has over 15.5 million views on YouTube, “Downfall,” with guest spots from Young Dolph and Lil Baby, the slow-burning hit “Home Body,” featuring Gunna and TK Kravitz, which has over 6.4 million plays on Spotify and is currently burning up rap radio, “Rockstar,” the album’s closing track which features an appearance from Lil Skies, and the recently released Neighborhood Hero,” which will soundtrack a series of videos in which Durk and other artists, including Meek MillTrae Tha Truth, and Nipsey Hussle, highlight their efforts towards improving their communities. Catch “Neighborhood Hero” on Spotify’s Off The Strength playlist, featuring Lil Durk on the playlist’s cover.

Yesterday, Lil Durk offered fans a final sneak peek at the album when he shared “Play With Us” via SoundCloud. Premiered by Complex, “Play With Us” finds Durk and guest star Kevin Gates emphatically asserting their supremacy, threatening haters, listing their accomplishments, and painting gorgeous melodies over piano-laden production.

Signed to the Streets 3 closes out an epic 2018 for Lil Durk, marked by multiple mixtapes, a label change from Def Jam to Alamo, a move from Chicago to Atlanta, and, just this month, the birth of his youngest child with his fiancé India. In March, he released his first project since departing Def Jam, Just Cause Y’all Waited, an important transitional record for Durk. Praised by Pitchfork, who wrote “Lil Durk writes about Chicago the way Joan Didion once captured California,” Just Cause Y’all Waited features tracks such as the buzzing 1-773 Vulture,” a street remix to Logic’s hit single “1-800-273-8255” that reached the 9 million view mark on YouTube, and the Lil Baby-featuring lead single “How I Know,” which earned prominent placement on Spotify’s Most Necessary playlist. Featuring additional appearances from PartyNextDoor, Ty Dolla $ignGunna, and TK Kravitz, and with production from 808 Mafia and others, Just Cause Y’all Waited EP is a formidable appetizer for Signed to the Streets 3. Lil Durk turned heads when he performed his hits in a prime time slot, and later joined Tee Grizzley onstage at the Rolling Loud Festival in Miami (catch a few clips from this performance and from backstage in the “Remembrance” video) and recently showed off his label signees with Lil Durk Presents: Only The Family Involved Vol. 1
