Lil Durk has developed a reputation as one of the most creative and unfiltered rappers around, whether talking about his bowel movements or shouting out his fiancée India Royale's cosmetics line on a Drake song. Scroll to see 10 of his most outrageous lyrics ever.
1. "Pissed Me Off"
Lil Durk and his fiancée India Royale were the victims of an armed home invasion last July, shooting back at the suspects in self-defense. (Thankfully, they were both ok.) Smurk rapped about trusting India to use a strap on "Pissed Me Off" and he even gave her $100k in cash "for being 100."
"N****s ran inside my crib, but the Glock 10 was by the bed / I'll give my gun to India before I put it in your hand (Man, what?)."
2. "Shootout @ My Crib"
There's also a song on Durk's latest #1 album '7220' – the address of his grandma's house – titled "Shootout @ My Crib" where he speaks on the same incident and claims he hired security guards. But the candid line below about his bowel movements had fans saying, "Man, what?!"
"I ain't gon' cap, you gon' smell Percs and lean when I fart."
3. "Coming Clean"
As cutthroat as Lil Durk can be, he has a softer and more intimate side that appears on records like "Coming Clean" where he recalls a steamy night with one woman, or two or three. Either way, there are unfiltered metaphors like the one down below that might make listeners start to sweat.
"You turn me on when you be shavin' off your p***y / Makin' that macaroni sound when it gushy."
4. "No Interviews"
One of the reasons '7220' is competing for the #1 position on the Billboard 200 again – one month after its release – is due to addictive tracks like "No Interviews." Probably the most memorable moment is when Durk admits to hooking up with a prison guard before going to court.
"I went to court early off a Percocet, had to open my eyes / I was just f****n' on a lady guard, that's the only reason I'm tired."
5. "In The Bible"
Whenever Durkio hops on a song with Drake, you can bet he's bringing his A-game. At the same time, he never takes himself too seriously, resulting in hilariously relatable bars. Maybe the best is when he shouts out India's beauty line via "In The Bible" purely for the clout.
"She only play me in the whip / India Royale cosmetic, I'm just promotin' my b***h / Drake song do a billion streams fasho, I'm just promotin' her s**t!"
6. "No Auto Durk"
"No Auto Durk" from 2018 represents a pivotal moment in Smurk's catalog. Like the title suggests, he abandons the auto-tune he had leaned on for many years and then drags his opps nonstop. Among all the reckless lyrics, the one below exposing their girlfriends is something else.
"Opps be on my d**k in songs but I don't pay 'em no mind / All them h**s that be with the opps, gang done broke they spine!"
7. "What Happened To Virgil"
Lil Durk has a unique way of making even the most routine tasks sound interesting. When he's not crooning, "Oh, my god, what happened to Virgil?" with Gunna on his touching hit of the same name, the 29-year-old tells his girl to pass him his phone charger because, well, his phone died.
"Head down, X pill, Percocet, off it / B***h my phone died, pass me a charger."
As a top-tier rapper with over 21 million monthly listeners on Spotify, there are times when Durkio might clown entire groups of people. He shamed his haters using this tweet as inspiration: "Yo dawgs wont support you but will tell Lil Baby happy birthday in his comments."
"If a n***a I know support my song, they'll call 'em groupies / And they ain't even meet Lil Baby, but they'll go post his music."
9. "The Voice"
If an artist ever compares themself to Jay-Z, they're bound to make headlines. So, after "The Voice" crowned himself "Chicago's Jay-Z," fans wondered whether there's any truth in this flex. For what it's worth, Durk had more Hot 100 entries than anyone else across genres last year.
"You lookin' crazy, know the trenches raised me / I'm Durkio, but I'm Chicago Jay-Z."
10. "Laugh Now Cry Later"
Just like he made the most of the platform given to him on Drizzy's "In The Bible," Smurk is probably the only rapper to send shots at 6ix9ine on a single that's earned more than a billion total streams. He dropped the below diss aimed at a certain "rat" a few months after 6ix9ine delivered his comeback single "Gooba" in May 2020.
"I'm in the trenches, relax / Can you not play that lil' boy in the club? 'Cause we do not listen to rats."
Safe to say there's no artist out there quite like Durkio!
