Video: Booka600 – “Relentless” ft. Lil Durk
The Melodic OTF Rapper Calls Up His Big Bro For a Reflective New Rap Ballad
Booka600 pours his heart and soul into his melodies, telling emotional stories about his life in the streets and his rap star aspirations. Connecting with his big homie Lil Durk, the Only The Family rapper shares “Relentless,” his new video. Dominated by drippy pianos, the two Chicago natives give a detailed chronicling of their troubled states of mind. With a soaring tenor, Booka struggles to process “all this pain I didn’t ask for,” while Durk mourns his close friend King Von even as he can’t escape the paranoid thought that he might be next. In the video, Booka heads to church to confess his sins, all while he and Durk take refuge in the back room with straps and bulletproof vests.
“Relentless” is Booka’s second high profile collaboration in recent weeks. Earlier this month, the South Sider teamed up with Gunna for the aspirational “London,” the spiritual sequel to Durk’s 2020 “Denied In UK” single, recounting an unfortunate incident at Heathrow’s customs. “London” follows Booka’s video for “Apart,” a tribute to his late OTF associate King Von, which finds Booka passing on wisdom to Von’s young nephew.”Apart” was one of Booka’s many standout appearances on Loyal Bros, the latest label compilation mixtape from Only The Family. Booka also appeared on heaters like “JUMP,” also featuring Durk, Von, and Memo600, and “Game Face,” a collaboration with Tee Grizzley.
Booka is hard at work on his own solo project, entitled Loyal, due to release later this year. Stay tuned for much more from Booka600 and Only The Family as he looks to finish the year with a bang.

Founded by Lil Durk, Only The Family is one of rap’s most respected labels and most impressive collections of talent. Originally based in Chicago, the label earned a reputation for cultivating some of the city’s most vital talents, with members like Booka600, Memo600, and the late great King Von. With a roster that reflects label boss Durk’s signature combination of raw lyricism and emotional songwriting, OTF has released three label compilation mixtapes, including the two volumes of Only The Family Involved in 2018 and Family Over Everything in 2019. Making a statement after a 2020 marked by success and tragedy in equal measure, Only The Family released Loyal Bros, their latest compilation tape, coming in February 2021.
