If Ye delays Donda 2, we’ll be two for two on albums that didn’t stick to the scheduled 2/22/22 release date. At midnight Tuesday, Lil Durk surprised fans who were waiting for him to drop his seventh studio album, 7220, by dropping only the single “Ahhh Ha” instead. He then announced on Instagram that 7220 will now be released March 11. While the rapper could ostensibly push the album back again, it might appease fans to know he can’t delay it forever — he’s scheduled to tour with the album starting in April in Phoenix and ending in May in his hometown of Chicago.
The song and music video for “Ahhh Ha” appear to be Lil Durk’s response to NBA YoungBoy’s “Bring The Hook,” which seems to reference Chicago’s O-block and the death of King Von. “Fuck tweeting, we sliding, the feds will come,” Lil Durk declares (though he does start the track with the caveat that “this shit is not real, just in case the police listening”). Perhaps he’s been reading up on the Rap Music on Trial bill.
