“All My Life” by Lil Durk and J. Cole might just be the most anticipated and buzzed-about hip-hop drop of the week. Of course, ever since the Chicago native teased a collab with the North Carolina lyricist at the Dreamville Festival in early April, fans clamored for it to release. Now, ahead of Durk’s next album Almost Healed, this single will hold them over and keep them excited for what’s to come on that project. Of course, such a notable collab was bound to turn heads within the industry as well. For example, 21 Savage recently took to Twitter to praise the “on the street” MC for his contributions to the track.
“Cole just went so crazy on that verse wtf,” 21 wrote on Twitter shortly after the song’s release. Listeners definitely agree, as the social media platform flooded with awed and impressed reactions to the collab. It’s definitely a more introspective and heartfelt offering than some of Lil Durk’s more overtly aggressive or boastful tracks. However, that’s not to say that such themes were never there in the first place. J. Cole and 21 Savage also have songs and tours together, which makes their respect for each other that much more meaningful.

21 Savage Praises J. Cole’s Verse On “All My Life” By Lil Durk
In addition to the Atlanta MC, Smurk himself also had some words to say about J. Cole’s verse. In fact, he had a pretty hilarious admission to make, and goes to show that rappers have to be humble when necessary, as well. “The number one thing, he smoked my a** on that, for one,” Lil Durk expressed. “Barely. That barely happens. But shoutout to Cole, shoutout to [Dr.] Luke. We made it happen.” From what people like 21 Savage have said, it’s not hard to see why.
Meanwhile, the “One Mic, One Gun” rhymer recently popped out at Young Nudy’s concert in Atlanta to play a standout collab of his own. The two performed “Peaches & Eggplants” off of Nudy’s recent album, Gumbo. Hopefully he can link with either Durk or Cole soon, and maybe he will be the one with the highlight verse this time around. Regardless, log back into HNHH for the latest on Lil Durk, 21 Savage, and J. Cole.
