Lil Durk worked hard to reach superstar status, and he’s bringing his team along for the ride. Recruiting his Only The Family brother Chief Wuk, Durk and OTF share “Turkey Season,” a new music video. Produced by the all-star team of ATL Jacob, TM88, and TooDope, “Turkey Season” is an energetic banger that mixes the expansive sound of ATL trap with the ominous vibes of Chicago drill. The beat provides the perfect canvas for Chief Wuk and Lil Durk to trade verses and support each other with hype ad-libs as they celebrate their lucrative business deals and salute the late King Von. Directed by Crownsoheavy, the video is a comedic snapshot into the pre-fame life of Lil Durk, as he and Wuk stumble upon an unsecured truck packed with bags of chronic and take off with the product before the driver can stop them.
“Turkey Season” is the latest video from Loyal Bros, the OTF label compilation mixtape which debuted in the top 20 of the Billboard 200 upon its release in March, following the luxurious clip for the tape’s opening track “JUMP.” Exploring the kinship forged by the hardship of growing up in the trenches, Loyal Bros showcases the talents of Durk and his label signees, who always make music with the streets in mind. The new 23-track tape is home to several new songs by Lil Durk, plus posthumous appearances from King Von, emotionally impactful turns from Booka600, snarling street missives from Memo600, and contributions from fellow OTF signees like Timo, Doodie Lo, JusBlow600, THF Zoo,and C3. In addition to OTF’s talented roster, Loyal Bros welcomes several high profile guests, including Lil Uzi Vert (who connects with Memo600 for the standout track “Let It Blow,” Durk’s frequent collaborator Tee Grizzley (who has his own solo track on the project), and The New 1017 standout Foogiano.
The cover of Loyal Bros pays tribute to OTF’s fallen vultures, honoring King Von, who experienced a commercial breakthrough before his tragic passing in November, and acknowledging still-painful absence of OTF Nunu aka Nuski, who died in 2014. Featuring additional appearances from Slimelife Shawty, EST Gee, Lil Mexico, Ikey, and more, and production from OTF-signed producers TouchOfTrent and John Lam, plus others including TM88 and Chopsquad DJ, Loyal Bros is available everywhere via Only The Family/EMPIRE.
