Due to a situation out of his control Lil Durk’s ‘Remember My Name‘ concert in Philly was cancelled on 6.4.2015!!! HipHopSince1987 had the opportunity to catch up with OTF/Coke Boys rapper Lil Durk in NYC for an exclusive interview about his debut album, ‘Remember My Name‘.
Lil Durk talked about not wanting to use too many features on the project. He explained working in the studio with Jeremiah for their “Like Me” record. He also added that him & Logic collaborated over social media for “Tryna’ Tryna’” due to their busy schedules. Besides them two & two others, Durk decided not to use plenty of features on his project because he didn’t want to piggyback off anyone. He explained he has verses from French Montana, Rick Ross, Meek Mill, & even Jadakiss for the album but decided to keep them off.
Lil Durk went in-depth about a few records from his album. He explained that “Temperature” is one of his favorite’s off the album right now. Being as though Durk doesn’t drink or smoke, he explained why he went with a record like “Higher” for those who do smoke & drink.
Lil Durk did reveal that he & Chief Keef are currently working on a mixtape. They already have a few records recorded for the untitled project, so fans can expect that soon. When asked about his mixtape with Young Chop, he mentioned that they had to fall back because they were moving too fast. With his album just being released, expect all other projects to be released later down the line & no time soon.
When talking about his city, Durk touched up on the Drill music sound other rappers are mimicking even though they are not from Chicago. When HipHopSince1987 asked him about the violence in the city, Durk mentioned the Cure Violence & the help of Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah making efforts to help stop the violence in his city. Dirk briefly talked about his plans for his dad when his comes home after over twenty two plus years in jail. He mentioned he has to help him transition into the new fashion trends of today, get him an iPhone, & “get him some pussy“.
For all those who were upset by the cancellation of Lil Durk’s 6.4.2015 Philly concert, the rapper announced he would make it up to his fans.
