Two of Chicago’s finest may be working together. Windy City rapper Lil Durk and Grammy-winning producer Kanye West were spotted together in a photo that recently made the social media rounds, sparking speculation that a collaboration is coming.
Collab W/ Lil Durk + Kanye West?
Kanye West has been a bit preoccupied lately with politics and family issues, but he’s still the first name that comes to mind for a lot of people when talking about Chicago hip-hop. Meanwhile, Lil Durk is the hottest name in the Chi-town rap game, with his latest album The Voice currently contending for a top spot on the Billboard charts. Could they be joining forces for a new project?

Lil Durk Pays Homage In New ‘Kanye Krazy’ Video
Durkio went all out for Yeezy fans around the world. The hip-hop star has delivered a must-see new “Kanye Krazy” music video where he reenacts some of Kanye’s most unforgettable career moments.
Rappers love to name-check famous figures, but Lil Durk really commits to the bit on his latest. The Chicago rapper doesn’t have much to say about Kanye West on “Kanye Krazy” — he saves all his references for the music video, a trip through West’s most iconic moments. Durk takes on music videos from the artful “Runaway” to the silly “I Love It” to the horny “Bound 2”; he also references moments like West’s wild interview with Sway Calloway (“You ain’t got the answers, Sway,” Durk raps) and his infamous crash of Taylor Swift’s speech at the 2009 VMAs.

Lil Durk Keeps Enjoying Success From The Voice Album
Despite Tekashi 6ix9ine‘s best trolling efforts, Lil Durk’s new album The Voice looks like a hit. Tekashi has clowned Durk for the album allegedly not selling well, but the evidence says otherwise.
