(NOTE LANGUAGE) Lil Durk finally dropped his highly anticipated 7220 album on Friday, after postponing the release for nearly three weeks.
When the clock struck midnight, the 17-track album and all of its hard-hitting, fresh, personal, bar-heavy bangers were made available for listening and streaming.
Durk had originally planned to release the project on 2/22, the same day Kanye’s Donda 2 was expected and delayed, but the Chicago rapper instead dropped only a single — one that for sure got the people talking.
In the song “Ahhh Ha,” Durk seemingly responds to NBA YoungBoy’s “Bring the Hook,” which appeared to be a diss track about the late rapper King Von. Durk and King Von were not only lifelong close friends but also members of the Durk-lead record label, Only The Family (OTF).
The release of Von’s posthumous album, What It Means to Be King last Friday could have contributed to Durk’s new 3/11 release date. Durk took to his Instagram to post a photo of Von’s album cover, in support of the rapper who was shot and killed in Atlanta last year.
As part of Durk’s final effort to promote the new album before its Friday release, he shared the visual for the Jerry Production-directed “Golden Child” single on Thursday.
A notable line in the song goes, “I bought my Lamb’ with cash // That boy dead, I’m glad // I don’t speak tongues, period // I don’t f*** with (DJ) Vlad // In New York, I dress like Fab // Too rich to jump in cabs.”
Landing at number five on the track list, “Golden Child” falls in line with the other 16 explicit, yet powerful, poetic songs.
Here’s the full 7220 track list:
“Shootout @ My Crib”
“Petty Too” ft. Future
“What Happened to Virgil” ft. Gunna
“Grow Up / Keep It on Speaker”
“Smoking & Thinking”
“Difference Is” ft. Summer Walker
“Love Dior Banks”
“Pissed Me Off”
“Broadway Girls” ft. Morgan Wallen
