Decorated rappers Lil Durk and NBA YoungBoy have long had beef between them, but over the past few days, things have become particularly tense as they each prepare to drop albums. The younger of the two has already shared projects like Don't Try This At Home featuring Mariah the Scientist and Nicki Minaj as well as I Rest My Case so far in 2023. The Chicago native, on the other hand, has been quieter, making appearances on Don Toliver's "Leave the Club" alongside GloRilla, and linking up once again with the Memphis-born baddie for the Phatnall Remix of her "Ex's" song.
While YoungBoy stayed true to his word and unleashed Richest Opp on Friday (May 12), Durk opted to gatekeep his LP a little longer. Instead, the father of six gave us a taste of what's to come with "All My Life" featuring J. Cole. Just hours after its debut, Twitter users already can't get enough of the joint effort and have been singing both lyricist's praises loudly. For his part, the Louisana-born hitmaker operated without assistance on almost all of his 17 tracks, apart from "Chopstick," which boasts an appearance from Ten.
NBA YoungBoy Turns Up After Lil Durk Delays His Project
Durk's single is still obviously stealing some of YB's spotlight, but he seems pleased to not be competing with his nemesis' new body of work in a video that's circulating online. While flexing a massive stack of cash and dancing around, the 23-year-old mimics shooting noises and holding a gun at the camera before hurling some insults the "Laugh Now Cry Later" collaborator's way. "Bitch ass n*gga! You pushed back, you better not ever try it again," Kentrell Gaulden chiefly yells. "Don't play with me!"
