Was 2021 the best year ever? It was for Lil Durk, as he definitely lays claim to being the hottest rapper in the game. Not only are his streaming numbers the biggest in music, so are his Billboard charts.
Lil Durk wasn’t supposed to be here, rising through the Chicago scene. He was one of many GBE affiliates who got a deal, but one of few who learned the business. That decision laid the groundwork for him to become one of music’s biggest names.
Before 2021 ended, Lil Durk did a collaboration with Morgan Whalen of all people. In 2021, Durk tied Taylor Swift for the most Billboard hits. What is funny about that is he didn’t even drop an album this year.
