Southside recruits Lil Durk for melancholic new single ‘Save Me’

Throughout his career, 808 Mafia legend Southside has crafted many of Lil Durk‘s hottest songs. Most recently partnering up with Durkio for his NBA YoungBoy-aimed diss “AHHH HA” in February, it’s apparent that Southside has developed a solid chemistry with the Chicago icon over the years.

With this in mind, Southside figured it would be a great idea to have Durk as a guest on a song released under his own artist name. On July 22, Southside dropped his new track “Save Me” featuring Lil Durk, which is the presumed second promotional single for his upcoming project FA4.

Southside delivers a bread-and-butter instrumental suited perfectly for Durk, consisting of a piano loop and aggressive trap drums and claps. In typical Durk fashion, he taps into an emotionally potent mindset, rapping about the adverse conditions he has needed to overcome to achieve success.

I been grippin’ pistols, I been cuttin’ n****s drank

I been puttin’ stickers, on the bottom of the Drac’

I put a city on my back, I can really get a “Thanks”

I claimed n****s was my dawgs, they turned out to be the jakes

Came in a thousand times before my daughter, I was shootin’ blanks

Could you really, really save me? (Save me)

“Save Me” — Southside featuring Lil Durk

The visuals for “Save Me” correspond with these motifs perfectly, as Durk and Southside ride around with their whip’s red interior lights shining on them. Simultaneously, scenes of dice games, funerals and hiding bodies play to emphasize the lifestyle that surrounds Durk.

FA4 is slowly but surely rounding into form. The project’s first promotional single “Hold That Heat” with Travis Scott and Future debuted at No. 57 on the Billboard Hot 100, demonstrating the star-power Southside will likely continue to attract to put together this album’s feature roster.

With Lil Durk now added to FA4, a project that has yet to be given a release date or track list, it will be thrilling to see what Southside has in store next.
