Lil Durk paid homage to an array of classic music videos and standout pop culture moments from Kanye West’s decorated career with his “Kanye Krazy” video. While Yeezy hasn’t responded publicly to it yet, Lil Wayne showed love to Durk regarding the Cole Bennett-directed clip on Sunday (January 31).
“Hardest shot ever,” Weezy wrote with a photo of Durk recreating the scene of Kanye’s “Famous” video of him sleeping with a bunch of celebrities on a massive bed.
Since the New Orleans rap legend has often been disconnected from music culture for the past decade, it’s worth asking if he’s even seen West’s “Famous” video or a bunch of the other cultural moments that Durk acknowledges.
The nostalgic visual compiled over six million YouTube views throughout the weekend and finds Durk paying tribute to unforgettable looks and props stained in our brains from Kanye’s “Runaway” video, the “I Love It” oversized suit, his MAGA phase, interview with Sway, the “Bound 2” motorcycle, interrupting Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards and more.
Durk returned on Friday (January 29) to unleash the deluxe edition to his The Voice project, which added a 12 additional tracks to the original and should earn the Chicago native another lofty placement on the Billboard 200. During its full first week of sales, The Voicelanded at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, Durk’s highest effort to date.
As for Wayne, he’s stayed busy amid 2020’s turbulence and ended up releasing or being part of more than 50 songs in total for the calendar year. Following the release of his “Ain’t Got Time” single, fans can expect Weezy to keep heating up the streets in 2021.
