Lil Durk has had one of, if not the most successful year of his career yet.
The Chicago rapper has been on an absolute tear throughout 2021, and by the looks of it, he has no plans of slowing down anytime soon.
After dropping his solo album, The Voice, and a collab album with Lil Baby titled The Voice of the Heroes, Durk has been a marquee feature artist for the industry as of late, linking up with Drake, Kanye West, DJ Khaled, Meek Mill, The Kid Laroi, Polo G, Pooh Shiesty.
Lil Durk has established himself as one of music’s leading rap stars, and it really is much deserved. To put into perspective how dominant of a year Lil Durk has had thus far, he’s earned the most Billboard Hot 100 entries with 37 — the most among any current artist.
Only adding to his impressive resume, Lil Durk returns bearing some fury on with his latest titled “Pissed Me Off.” This track comes right after Durk took to Twitter to inform fans that he wants to accomplish some of his goals, one of which is going back to school to get his diploma.
Although short, the two-minute track contains tons of depth behind Durk’s thoughts and feelings. Durk raps about his late brother Dthang and fellow Chicago rapper King Von. He spits viscerally over a menacing, grimy beat, calling out fake people that pose as something they’re really not.
I lost bro, I can’t be happy ’til we creep up on the score
I know n***** act like they with it, but they bitches on the low
Why you n***** postin’ son-son? Why you n***** postin’ True?
Why you act like you support us? If you do, hop in that coupeLil Durk – “Pissed Me Off”
“Pissed Me Off” begins with an almost eerie sounding choir that remains in the background for the entirety of the song — giving the track a more serious aura. Durk enters the song with authority and an aggressive tone as he spits over hard-hitting 808s and melancholy melodies. Throughout the song, you hear the tenacity and assertiveness in Durk’s voice, as he goes bar for bar rapping about topics he is truly passionate about.
The visuals for “Pissed Me Off” kick off with Durk flexing his ice, cash and a shot of the West 59th street sign in Chicago. The video displays a series of flashy shots and quick cuts of Durk and his crew. He’s captured paying his respects by wearing a shirt with a picture of both his late-brother and Von throughout the video.
Simply put, Lil Durk’s 2021 run has been truly iconic. His work ethic and elitist grind has become well-known in the hip-hop community, as it would come as no surprise if Durk were to deliver more new music by year’s end.
