This one song is a tune many music fans couldn’t duck away from because of the vibrancy Lil Durk and Pooh Shiesty brought to the song, which drew many people’s attention.’Should’ve Ducked’ featuring Pooh Shiesty was one of the tracks, which shined on Lil Durk’s album deluxe for ‘The Voice’. Both Durk and Shiesty linked up to film the music video in Memphis. Jerry Production superbly mirrored the audio’s ambience in the visuals as the music video manifested the dark, hostile song’s mood.
In terms of the audio, the drama within the streets of Southside Chicago influenced Durk’s lyricism in ‘Should’ve Ducked’. Lil Durk brought forth his aggressive, sinister persona as he used disrespectful jabs and insults to his foes. This side of Durk is reminiscent for his fans as it mirrors the early stages of his career where he relied heavily on the drill sound. The indifference in his lyricism without autotune is what his fanbase has been missing. Durk’s fans have been begging for the Chicago rapper to create a project in merely using this sound. Pooh Shiesty matched Durk’s threatening energy with his monotone flow and menacing lyricism.
DJ Bandz deserves credit for his involvement in the song as he managed to produce an instrumental that contributed to the song’s serious mood. DJ Bandz wonderfully blended in the melody with the drumset for the instrumental, which packaged a tune altogether with an ominous vitality. Overall this correlated phenomenally with the vibe both artists founded with their separate verses.
The collaboration between the two has lately been a success, which involves their previous song, ‘Back In Blood’. Many fans have imagined a joint compilation between the artists because of the chemistry they display in their tunes. Nevertheless, it will be fun to experience a project between Lil Durk and Pooh Shiesty.
