Dej Loaf was his love interest in the single. This mixtape was praised by critics as refreshingly different from his previous releases, which mostly focused on drug violence in the area where he was born.
On July 22, 2016, his second album, “Lil Durk 2X”, was released. Two months prior to the album’s release, a single called “She Just Wanna” was released featuring another rapper, “Ty Dolla Sign”.
