Lil Durk told fans his next mixtape project “Fuckey” would hit the net Jan. 5. But fans soon learned no project would ever come.
Durk’s label is apparently the reason for this decision.
“DEFJAM told me not to drop a Mixtape,” he wrote.
Durk issued a public service announcement via IG, stating the “mixtape” is on the way despite the label’s call.
“2014, OTF, Coke Boy shit. This the f*****g takeover. You see me f*****g the streets up right now. New s**t on the way. New videos on the way. Mixtape on the way. Def Jam told me don’t drop it, but that s**t go crazy,” he said.
Durk may have been told to focus his energy on his forthcoming album, which is currently untitled.
Durk announced the project via social media when hinting at the producers slated to appear on the project, including Paris Beuller, Young Chop, Nito Beats and Dree The Drummer.
Paris Beuller was at the production helm of several hit songs, including, “Dis Ain’t What U Want” and “Competition.”
“Workin on my album this gone show niggas dat my lane is real small step it up a lilbit #OTF
“I need @youngchopbeatz and @ParisBeuller send me a folder each we album ready #london #dreedadrumma #nito #renegade #zae who Eva else,” he wrote.
Durk has been staying busy in the studio. The Coke Boy leaked snippets of two unreleased singles “Last Year” and “Shots Fired” in late December.
In “Last Year,” Lil Durk raps, “You wife that b***h, I did that b***h like year/You drive that s**t, I drove that s**t like last year/Them yo kicks, I did that s**t like last year.”
Durk’s “Shots Fired” is hard hitting.
Durk commented on IG, “Some light s**t when I hear rumors.”
Durk raps, “There’s been a lot of sneak dissing going on/N****as, b*****s cause we going strong.”
Durk’s most popular leak this far has been “Getting Money With My Team.”
In this single, Durk raps, “I got locked up/Lost a couple ni**as, lost couple killers that got chopped up/Motivation and struggle/I can’t believe it, I can’t believe it/We are the team and we eating/Bad b*tches conceited/A lot of money, we even.”
Durk is still promoting his current mixtape “Signed To The Streets.” Durk is set to release a music video for latest single “Don’t Understand Me.”
