Lil Durk Questions YoungBoy Morgan Wallen

Before his new album Almost Healed drops next week, it seems like Lil Durk has some beef to clear within the industry. Moreover, reports stemming from DJ Akademiks and Durk's own Twitter account suggested that the Chicago MC squashed his beef with NBA YoungBoy. Furthermore, it hasn't been strictly confirmed by either artist, but all signs point to "yes" on social media. However, that doesn't mean that Durkio is going to spill all the beans on their alleged reconciliation. While getting briefly interviewed by a reporter on the street, he sort of answered a question about their beef without saying much at all.

"What beef?" Lil Durk replied incredulously to a woman's question about YoungBoy. "Who? Shout out Morgan Wallen." Then, the "Broadway Girls" artist got into his car without another word, leaving the reported (and fans) mostly in the dark. Still, it's understandable that he wouldn't want to keep fanning the flames of gossip, especially surrounding a feud. Maybe he simply wants his next album to speak for itself, and might open up in the future in a less impromptu scenario.

Lil Durk Shouts Out Morgan Wallen Instead Of Detailing YoungBoy Situation

Meanwhile, Lil Durk certainly has other collaborations to look forward to that have his die-hards and detractors alike quite excited. Not only that, but it should make for some incredible chemistry with one of the genre's top dogs, who many might wrongfully assume wouldn't go with Durk's style. Him and J. Cole have been hard at work on a collaboration and accompanying music video. In fact, it was fans' 100K comments on a post promoting it that led the 30-year-old to share Almost Healed's release date and cover art.

Regardless of any beef or de-escalation, these are two very different artists with their own careers to take care of. While a collab between then is unlikely, it would actually make for a pretty interesting combination of styles, fanbases, and appeals. What's more is that YoungBoy just dropped an album this year as well, Don't Try This At Home, which is actually his second of the year. No matter what's going on between them, they are still two of the most hyped names to watch in the genre right now.
