The two express their shared hurt on wax.
The music gods have been kind to us on this “New Music Friday.” We’ve received albums from Tory Lanez, Styles P, Boosie Badazz, Lil Peep, among others; we’ve received a single from Flipp Dinero and Lil Baby with “How I Move.” And now, the single train continues thanks to Future and Lil Durk linking on the former’s new track, “Last Name.”
Leave it to Future to create such a dualistic song: it imparts this hauntingly beautiful soundscape where Hndrxx croons with his staple auto-tuned voice and melodic flow, but finds his pockets to unleash his dynamic approach. Produced by DY, Future and Lil Durk depressurize their minds by speaking on the haunting truths that frequent their realities. From seeing homies pass to family losing trials, the two mourn a shared oppression rooted in loss and trauma.
The single’s cover photo — a black-and-white photo of a skull peeking through the blinds — serves as a prime overture for the song’s nature by perfectly capturing its spirit.
“Last Name” is the most recent song in a long line of collaborations between Future and Lil Durk, which includes: “Hated On Me” and “Spin The Block.”
