EP: Lil Durk – Just Cause Y’all Waited

The Melodic Chicago Maestro Shares His First Project Since His Departure from Def Jam Records



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

The EP:

An expert songwriting who anchors his soaring melodies with strong emotion, Lil Durk is one of the most consistent rappers in the game. Satisfying his fans pleas for new music as they wait for a new solo full-length, Durk shares Just Cause Y’all Waiteda new EP. Spanning twelve tracks that thrive on Durk’s trademark emotional honesty, Just Cause Y’all Waited is a formidable collection of melodic bangers, with Durk providing tuneful hooks over booming trap production. Further evidence of the Chicago-bred aritst’s seamless fit within the vibrant scene of his new hometown of Atlanta, Just Cause Y’all Waited EP is an important transitional record for Durk, as it is his first project released since his departure from Def Jam Records. A formidable appetizer for Durk’s highly-anticipated Signed to the Streets 3Just Cause Y’all Waited features previously released tracks such as the DY of 808 Mafia-produced Durkio Krazy,” which has over 5 million combined plays for its audio on YouTube, the buzzing “1-773 Vulture,” a street remix to Logic’s hit single “1-800-273-8255” that reached the 7 million view mark on YouTube, and the Bone Thugs-N Harmony tribute Cross Roads,” which has over 3 million combined plays. Featuring appearances from PartyNextDoor, Ty Dolla $ign, Lil Baby (on lead single “How I Know“), Gunna, and TK Kravitz, and with production from 808 Mafia and others, Just Cause Y’all Waited EP arrives via EMPIRE.
