The 17 track project was inspired by his upbringing as stated by Durk on IG, “7220 my granny address I grew up in that house that made me the realist.” Now Durk has himself in position to possibly take over Drake.
Appearing on Million Dollaz Worth of Game, Lil Durk was reminded of a previous statement he made in which he declared he wanted to be “bigger than Drake.” When asked where he stance now in 2022, Durk was not holding back. “Sh-t, to us, in this mothaf–ka, we bigger than him, you know what I’m sayin?”
“To my people,” Durk further explained. “We touch people. Drake’s at a rate where he can stay in the f–king house if he want to. But nah, shout out to him. He touched the youth. That’s one thing about him. He touched us and got us hotter than what the fuck we was but a lot of people can’t say that. Like a lot of these mothaf–kas don’t even know him but a lot of people he talk to don’t me know. Like, that’s just what it is.”
