It looks like Drake may have played a major role in Lil Durk’s success!
While Lil Durk is one of the hottest rappers out right now, the Chicago native admits that collaborating with Drake, 35, helped take his career to the next level. During a recent interview, the 29-year-old rapper reveals that collaborating with Drake helped increase his popularity as well as his income.
“This mother*** Drake came through in the DM like, ‘send me your number’…He sent the song through, then I called everybody, ‘we rich, it’s over with’. He got that touch for real. I turned into a fan that day.”
Lil Durk goes on to reveal that his booking increased drastically after being featured on Drake’s song.
“[Booking went from $40,000] We never touched $60,000…The song came out during the pandemic. We went straight to $100,000…Shout out to Drake, he definitely helped a mother*** out.”
