“All My Life” by J. Cole and Lil Durk has been nothing short of a success, whether as the first single to the latter’s upcoming album Almost Healed (whose tracklist and features just dropped) or as just a big moment in the hip-hop field. Moreover, the track officially debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, marking new commercial highs for the two. Not only is it the Chicago MC’s highest-ever debut as a lead artist, but it’s also the North Carolina lyricist’s highest-charting feature. Even if it hadn’t charted at all, it would still remain a great song with some highly praised verses. That being said, outselling rival NBA YoungBoy’s mixtape Richest Opp must be a nice cherry on top.
Furthermore, the song’s also a testament to The Voice’s versatility and to Cole’s reputation as a feature killer. Sure, Lil Durk caught some flack for saying he’s not a fan of lyrical rappers, but only said so as he gave the Dreamville MC his flowers. “Nah he went crazy,” he told RapCaviar. “I had to listen to it like four times. You know I ain’t super big on lyricist-type rappers.

Lil Durk & J. Cole Have A Huge Hit In “All My Life”
“With Cole, [he] was one of the ones, like him and Jay, you gotta play them 50 times to catch what they’re saying,” Lil Durk continued. “Like, if you listen to Lil Wayne right now, and you heard some s**t ten years ago that you just catch onto today. But he definitely gave me one of them verses and I appreciate it. ‘Cause he ain’t even have to, for real. He could’ve gave us anything.” It wasn’t the first time he praised J. Cole for his contributions, and it certainly won’t be the last time that fans do.
Meanwhile, now all sights are on Almost Healed, an album that could take the “Hanging With Wolves” MC to similarly impressive commercial highs. With the production credits boasting some huge names along with features like Future and Juice WRLD, it won’t be long before it lands on May 26. Overall, he set a high bar for himself that continued his streak of artistic growth. For more news and the latest updates on Lil Durk and J. Cole, stick around on HNHH.
