Lil Durk finds his own strength in the breezy new video for his introspective deep cut “Super Powers” off his recently released sophomore effort Lil Durk 2x (via Def Jam Records).
“The vibe was so crazy, in a good way, when I made this song,” the Chicago rapper, 23, tells Billboard. “I had just moved to Los Angeles. [Producer] Young Chop and his mom (RIP Momma Chop!) had stopped by my house to visit. Chop was moving at the time so he had his equipment in the car. We start talking about music and he told me how he wasn’t really making beats anymore and that he was rapping more. I convinced him to go to car and get his equipment. He made the ‘Super Powers’ track that day from scratch then I just laid the track later on that night.”
The track is also a testament to his more positive mindset. “It’s about how I remember the nights I’d kill myself, but now I’ve got thoughts just to be the best,” he said.
