Video: Lil Durk – “Green Light” (dir. Cole Bennett)
The Chicago Rapper Shares a Vision of Drill’s Future in the Latest Video From Love Songs 4 The Streets 2, Releasing August 2nd
“Vocally, Lil Durk is the current scene’s melodic forebear.” – 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
With an influential melodic style that defines the current sound of The Chi, Lil Durk is ready to affirm his rightful place among rap’s royalty. Traveling to the future and rocking a sleek silver wardrobe, Durk shines brightly in “Green Light,” his latest video. Filmed in Atlanta and directed by Cole Bennett, “Green Light” proves that Durk’s boss status transcends space and time, as the 26-year-old rapper exerts a near-psychic control over his drones, who do his dirty work while his hands stay clean. Forgoing the melodic auto-tune that characterizes much of Durk’s recent work, “Green Light” is a hard-hitting drill anthem, radiating with the rawness of the rapper’s breakout mixtapes. The video racked up over 1.3 million views since its release on Saturday. “Green Light” is the latest single from Love Songs 4 The Streets II, Durk’s upcoming album, dropping August 2nd via Alamo Records/Interscope.
The proper follow-up to November’s Signed To The Streets 3, Love Songs 4 The Streets 2 stresses the duality of Durk, presenting the face he shows at home with his fiancé India with smooth and emotionally intelligent romantic jams and projecting his street strength on intense anthems. Last week, Durk collaborated with Meek Mill for “Bougie,” a hook-filled banger that blends Durk’s soaring melodies with Meek’s breathless intensity. “Bougie” currently enjoys prominent placement on Spotify’s Most Necessary and Off The Strength playlists, where it sits alongside “Like That,” the album’s King Von-featuring first single. Last week, Durk appeared on “Slide Around,” a standout track from Chance The Rapper’s The Big Day album.
