Lil Durk & Metro Boomin's joint album is on the way
Lil Durk just dropped the deluxe of his seventh studio album, 7220, and he already has plans for his next project. During a recent interview with Ebro on Apple Music's Beats 1 Radio, Smurk confirmed his next big release will be his long-awaited collab album with Metro Boomin, No Auto Durk.
‘'I gotta ask about the album, even though we just get the deluxe,'' Ebro asked before Durk replied, ‘'As far as next album? You might've heard something, no, it's really with Metro.'' Ebro continued, ‘'We can expect the next Lil Durk project to be the Metro project that we all heard about?''
The ‘'Computer Murderers'' rapper then responded while referencing the 2020 leaking of the project, ‘'Guaranteed. They got it leaked, y'all heard it, it's on another level.''
After a fan asked about the joint album on Twitter in March this year, Metro revealed it's still underway and that he'd talked to Durk about it. “Yes still otw we spoke about it the other day,” he wrote. DJ Akademiks shared this update on his Instagram page and Durk commented, ‘'Nobody Safe.''
Lil Durk first teased the album in February 2020 when he shared a photo of a billboard with the message: ‘'NO AUTO DURK PRODUCED BY METRO BOOMIN ALBUM COMING SOON.''
Speaking to Beats 1 the same year, Durk described the upcoming project as ‘'turned up.'' “Metro don't make himself highly accessible,” Durk said while explaining about working with Metro. “For you to be different, to have Metro, it's like bet. You do Metros with the Drakes, Futures, Thugs, 21 Savages, everybody don't get a Metro by themselves.”
