Lil Durk • "Neighborhood Hero"
Serving as the lead single to his Signed to the Streets series, Durk’s “Neighborhood Hero” produced by Niaggi instantaneously grabs the ears.

The instrumentation of the harp, the slight kick of the 808 and snares became the canvas to Durk’s “hood” illustration. While harmonizing his pain and truth on “Neighborhood Hero”, Durk’s words entices the emotions of listeners, belting out words like “When I'm off the drugs, I swear I'm steady throwin' tantrums, Angelo told me once before, he want a Phantom, I can't say no 'cause that's my son, I gotta answer”.
