Lil Durk displayed his knack for both lyricism and catchy, radio-targeted earworms on his impressive album Lil Durk 2X. The Chicago rapper's remix of Future's "Perky's Calling," premiering today on The FADER, is both and neither. It's a dense and potent mixture of nostalgia for lost friends, alternating dismay and pride over his violent surroundings, and reflection on the fruits of his current labors. But, it'll still sound great in your car.

“'Perky's Calling (Remix)' is just taking my fans down memory lane from when before I started rapping, Durk told The FADER over email. "When I was in the streets before the fame. At times I reminisce on all of my fallen soldiers. When I heard this beat all of this came off top. I didn't write it down, I just let it flow. “
