What does it mean to be ‘Signed to the Streets’? Who better to ask than Lil Durk who released a mixtape of the same name back in 2013? “I wasn’t big on being a rapper for real,” Lil Durk said during a recent visit to Mass Appeal HQ. “I used to be mad when people were like, ‘Oh he a rapper.’” At the time Durk was deep in the street life of Chicago. “Shootouts, getting locked up—everything that come with the streets, I signed up for,” he explained in our latest episode of Decyphered. “That situation with Def Jam came up so fast and unexpected.” Now that Durk is no longer with the label, he’s focused on building up momentum as an indie artist—and he says ‘Signed the the Streets 3’ is coming soon.
