Since relocating to Atlanta earlier this year, Chicago artist Lil Durk has received some good old southern hospitality. Durk has linked up with Atlanta's golden rappers Young Thug, Quavo, and Lil Yachty in the few months since his move and recently dropped off a new track titled "Goofy" with southern heavyweights Future and Jeezy. Today (Sept. 8), Durk returns with the sinister visual for "Goofy," as the new ATLien connects with Future and Jeezy to weed out the "goofies" in their respective circles. 

Produced by one of the city's go-to producers, Southside of 808 Mafia, the ominous beat opens with a screeching sound as Future leads the pack with an infectious hook. In the clip, Future is seen a black room doused in a smokey, red light and raps about loyalty and keeping his circle tight. "Only the family involved/I don't fuck with none of these goofy, goofy, goofies/I don't fuck with none of you goofy, goofies/Young n---a thought I was tripping'/Had to cut 'em off 'cause you wasn't getting' no money," he boasts over video game-like synths. 

Durk and his entourage are dressed to the nines, clad in dapper black tuxedos with Cuban cigars, in an elegant venue decorated with a dazzling chandelier. The Chicago MC sounds off on former associates and lists the things that could get someone cut off from his crew. "Switch up for some pussy you coochie/How you bad and boujee?/No car, no house, lil' bitch you goofy," Durk raps and later warned that he's "like Tookie" referring to the co-founder of the Crips gang, Stanley "Tookie" Williams. 

"Future and Jeezy both said this record was a movie. Future told me, 'when you drop this record, put the video out two days after and the fans are gonna go crazy, so we linked up in Atlanta and shot the video to make it happen," Durk told Billboard. It's menacing and it's fly all at once."

Jeezy later comes through and laces his gravelly voice onto the eerie beat, bragging about his luxury inventory, from his Italian Bentley coupe and Rolex watches to mink fur coats. 

"Goofy" follows Durks newly released project Supa Vultures, a joint EP with fellow Chicago rhymer Lil Reese. Watch the visual for "Goofy" below.
