(FreshAsFrankie) Lil Durk‘s steady stream of new music continues. On Thursday (Oct. 19), just a little over two months removed from dropping his Super Vultures EP with Lil Reese, the Chicago native returns with Signed to the Streets 2.5. It’s a sequel to his 2014 effort, Signed to the Streets.
A couple of weeks ago, Durk premiered “Make It Out,” which is the third track on his new project. The song features a healthy dose of Auto-tune as he half-sings about depression, the streets and using drugs to cope.
“Looking for inspiration, pray for my generation/Fuck Trump them bitches racist, bought ‘Raris just to race em’,” he spits in the song. At the time he dropped that track, he indicated that Signed to the Streets 3 was coming soon. Maybe that’s true, but for now, we’ve got Signed to the Streets 2.5, which will definitely do.
Check out Signed to the Streets 2.5 for yourself below.

(FreshAsFrankie) According to the Chicago Tribune, 33 people have been wounded, with six of them dying over the weekend in the Windy City. Police noted that the shootings happened in 13 hours, starting on Saturday and going into Sunday morning.
In one instance the Tribune pointed out, one man was killed while six others were wounded from gunfire that broke out around 2:30 A.M. on Sunday. All of the people hurt were standing in the parking lot of a banquet hall that serves as a nightclub when an unidentified man in a black SUV fired off shots at the group of people. The man drove off right after his attack. A 40-year-old man on the scene was hit by the SUV of the shooter, resulting in him having to be taken to the hospital for a broken ankle.
The violence in Chicago keeps drawing attention nationwide, with Donald Trump chiming in and offering “solutions” the city’s homicide rate. In 2016, Chicago had 760 homicides, which is more than L.A. and New York combined according to NY Daily News.
(FreshAsFrankie) A little more than a month after it was alleged R. Kelly is keeping women in a cult in two of his homes, here comes another upsetting allegation— another woman claims she and R. Kelly continued to have sex after she told him she was underage.
24-year-old Jerhonda Pace (which is her married name) told Buzzfeed she met Kelly when she was 15-year-old Jerhonda Johnson and started sleeping with him the next year. Pace claims the singer gave her an undisclosed sum of money in exchange for signing a non-disclosure agreement.
Unfortunately, these types of allegations against R. Kelly are nothing new. Here’s the kicker– the two met when Pace was a fan and attended his 2008 child pornography trial. That’s where one of The Pied Piper‘s employees friended her on MySpace and invited her to a party at his mansion. Pace initially lied about her age, telling him she was 19. Recalling her encounters, Pace said he used to make her call him “daddy” and he would call her “baby.” Pace also stated she had to “have two pigtails and make her wear little school girl outfits.” She alleged their encounters were filmed without her permission. Pace also stated Kelly was abusive in other ways, choking, slapping and spitting on her.
In July 2009, Pace says she told R. Kelly, she was really 16, and he said it was ok. The age of consent in Illinois is 17. He instructed her to “act 25” and if anyone else asked about her age, tell them she was 19.
Pace says she has decided to come forward now out of concern for other women who might still be abused by the R&B crooner.
