Lil Durk slid onto Drake’s “Laugh Now Cry Later” with a scene-stealing verse but fans wondered why the verse from the OTF leader was a little short. Durkio has the answer, COVID-19 is the culprit.

Durk spoke with Complex about the new single and revealed that he recorded a few verses for the single but that was the only one that made it.

“Oh, when I sang on the verse, I left. I thought it was done,” Durk said. “This was around the time the studio was really tripping about COVID. But when I had left the studio, it was supposed to get mixed the next day. So that being a shorter version was on my end.”


In some cases, shorter is sweeter and on this single Durk’s impact is definitely felt.
