Lil Durk has been having himself a phenomenal year from a musical standpoint and with every new release, fans find themselves asking for even more. The artist has been through a lot and he always puts that pain into his music. On Friday, Lil Durk surprised his fans with an emotional-sounding song called “Lion Eyes,” which speaks to the trials and tribulations that one would go through if they lived the gang lifestyle.
The song has some dark piano keys all while Durk gives us some song vocals laced in autotune. Throughout the song, Lil Durk is talking about how gang life promotes a veil of machismo that oftentimes manifests itself in insecurity. It’s clear that Durk had a lot to get off his chest, and fans will certainly appreciate the emotional honesty here.
