Poetic Justice – [Lil Mexico]

There should be very little disagreement with the assertion that Lil Durk fathered much of the present melodic-drill rap wave moreso than just about any of his peers and is an unquestionable legend for both his innovations and achievements lyrically and stylistically and it is quite rare that an artist can be both fashionable and forward-thinking enough can do this simultaneously, but Lil Durk the executive recently made a new move in signing up and coming South Carolina star Lil Mexico, along with his frequent Atlanta collaborator Slimelife Shawty, to his new OTF imprint. Lil Mexico has been building an exceptional catalog of melodically-inclined music from a bevy of different producers and even though he is currently blowing up hasn’t received all of the love he is owed yet for his musical contributions.

His new GM Visuals directed video “Poetic Justice” which premiered today on Lil Durk’s channel, will likely serve as the introduction to Lil Mexico for many and showcases all of the vocal gifts and grief-stricken relatability that instantly endeared him to young South Carolinians and then the world because of the barrage of music videos he has flooded the streets and internet with over the past twelve months or more. I am really looking forward to hearing Mexico develop under the tutelage of Lil Durk and see him begin to receive the flowers that his music is worthy of.
