Video: Only The Family & Doodie Lo – “Took Down” ft. BIG30
Lil Durk Protege Doodie Lo Joins Forces with Gucci Mane Co-Signee BIG30 For A Hard-Hitting Video from the OTF Label Tape Loyal Bros
Lil Durk and Only The Family reached #1 on Apple Music with their new compilation mixtape Loyal Bros. In the latest video from the tape, OTF’s Doodie Lo recently joined forces with BIG30 for the no-nonsense “Took Down.” A simmering, slow-moving slapper produced by Ayo Jarii, the Kankakee, IL native and the Memphis rapper prove to be kindred spirits as they trade trap tales in vivid detail: “Before this rap sh*t, I sold a hundred pounds a f*cking week,” intones Doodie. In the video, the two rappers kick back in the studio with their crews, as they show off their ice and other fruits of their labor. “Took Down” is a highlight track from Loyal Bros, the fourth OTF label compilation tape.
Featuring several new songs by Lil Durk, along with posthumous appearances from King Von, emotionally impactful turns from Booka600, snarling street missives from Memo600, and contributions from fellow OTF signees like Timo, JusBlow600, THF Zoo, and C3, Loyal Bros explores the kinship strengthened by the hardship of growing up in the trenches. The cover of Loyal Bros pays tribute to OTF’s fallen vultures, honoring King Von, who experienced a commercial breakthrough before his tragic passing in November, and acknowledging still-painful absence of OTF Nunu aka Nuski, who died in 2014. The compilation tape earned coverage in Pitchfork and reached #1 on Apple Music’s All-Genre charts upon its release last Friday.
In addition to OTF’s talented roster, Loyal Bros welcomes several high profile guests, including Lil Uzi Vert (who connects with Memo600 for the standout track “Let It Blow,” Durk’s frequent collaborator Tee Grizzley (who has his own solo track on the project), and The New 1017’s Foogiano. The mixtape is home to recent singles “Pistol Totin,” by Memo600 & Foogiano, “Rules,” an educational track from Timo, and “Jump,” the tape’s mission statement and opening track, which features contributions from Durk, Memo600, Booka600, and King Von. Featuring additional appearances from Slimelife Shawty, EST Gee, Lil Mexico, Ikey, and more, and production from OTF-signed producers TouchOfTrent and John Lam, plus others, Loyal Bros is available verywhere via Only The Family/EMPIRE.
Coming hot on the heels of Lil Durk’s The Voice (Deluxe) album, currently situated in the Top 5 of the Billboard 200, after peaking at #2 and spending more than 10 weeks in the top 10, Loyal Bros continues what’s shaping up to be a banner year for Only The Family.
