Leveling up from a rap star into a rap mogul, Lil Durk introduces the cast of his Only The Family (OTF) label on Lil Durk Presents: Only The Family Involved Vol. 1, unleashing a crew of fellow melodists and emotional realists. Featuring several brand new songs by Lil Durk, including last week’s new drop “Remembrance,” the new mixtape finds the Chicago native sharing the limelight with his most accomplished OTF signees, including eccentric trap melodist Yung Tory, warble-voiced drill emcee OTF Ikey, and the aggressive Doodie Lo. Atlanta rapper YFN Lucci is featured on the “Dirty Diana” track alongside Durk also.
An impressively hooky project that conveys the realities of street life with expert songcraft, Only The Family Involved Vol. 1 finds the labelmates feeding off each others’ styles, relentlessly stacking infectious melodies into verses, hooks, and ad-libs. Featuring the dramatic and emotional new single “Play Yo Role,” Lil Durk Presents: Only The Family Involved Vol. 1 is available to stream on all platforms on 7/31.
