Lil Durk – No Labels

Lil Durk – No Labels

An endless font of effortless hooks, Chicago’s Lil Durk is one of the foremost progenitors of modern rap’s melodic renaissance. Coming through with his first new music of 2019, Durk shares “No Label,” his latest single. As he explained on his Instagram, Durk took inspiration from a story a friend about his own relationship woes for “No Label,” flipping it into a fast-paced and hook-filled airing of grievances, attacking an ungrateful ex, trying to establish new ground rules for their relationship: “I ain’t want a label/I ain’t tryna be your man, or your friend, or your husband/I don’t wanna label.” Shared this morning on Durk’s SoundCloud, “No Label” is an ideal example of what fans have come to expect from Durk–smooth singing combined with hard-edged and unsparing lyricism.
