Lil Durk – No Label
Signed From The Streets 3, and its predecessors for that matter, showcased Lil Durk’s talents in a notable way. Now, the Chicago rapper continues to trailblaze forward, dropping off a new single for the streets. “No Label,” which arrives in tandem with Young Dolph’s own recently publicized record label woes, finds Durk in a reflective state. While the title may suggest a variety of possible narratives, Durk seems to be addressing a former lover, at least in the song’s opening stanzas. Sadly, the situation went left, and Durk took to the booth to vent accordingly.
“You were an ungrateful lil bitch, I didn’t spend enough?” vents Durk. “Told me you want your ass shots, you wasn’t thick enough?” Sadly, Durk’s own attempts at relationship salvation were met with disloyalty, and thus, we have reached this point of no return. In true Durk fashion, “No Label” brings a refreshing mix of honesty, vulnerability, and a battle-hardened perspective to the table, with a clean melodic quality throughout. “You were kind of mad I hang with murderers,” he reflects, genuinely baffled.
