The 50 Greatest Chicago Rap Songs

38. Lil Durk "L's Anthem" (2012)

Producer: Paris Beuller
Album: I'm Still A Hitta
Label: O.T.F.

Representing Chicago's Englewood neighborhood, dreadlocked drill rapper Lil Durk parlayed a huge YouTube buzz into a deal with Def Jam. His music may be melodic but when Durk says he's a "hitta" you'd best believe he's about that life. The Ls in this song reportedly refer to Lamron, a Black Disciples gang set from 63rd & Normal Street. "Lamron," of course, is normal spelled backwards. Listening to Durk's music, one thing's for sure: nothing in Chicago is normal anymore. —Rob Kenner
