Lil Durk's Def Jam debut, Remember My Name, is due out May 12. "Like Me," with high-profile production from Boi1da and Vinylz and a chorus by R&B's most effective hookman, Jeremih, promises to be the kind of record that could be Durk's true popular breakthrough. Its sparse, windswept production is closer to the style Drake's gravitated to over the years—the sound of Billboard—than it is to the synthesizer symphonies Durk built his name upon. Yet it works: in between Durk's words is his music's power, a haunted emotional grandeur. Although not as liable to be a radio hit, Durk's brutal underground record "Purge" might be even better. "Like Me"'s grisly flip-side, "Purge" paints murderous threats on a canvas of mournful torment. Rest in Peace to Durk's manager Uchenna Agina, who was killed last week in Chicago after attending an anti-violence event.
