“Golden Child” Lil Durk

Lil Durk’s “Golden Child” is a general braggadocious rap song. That is to say that the intent isn’t really to focus what’s being said per se, as it is more or less your standing money-sex-drugs-guns’ type of fare. Rather it is more about the delivery, as in the clever metaphors the rapper uses to get these well-worn ideas across, which all ultimately point to him being on top of the game.

And of course the term “Golden Child” is one many of us are already familiar with, as it is the name of a movie from Eddie Murphy’s 1980s’ heyday. But as utilized in this song, the ‘gold’ being referred to comes off as being more in the literal sense. Simply put, it is an allusion to Durk’s wealth. And we can safely make this postulation based on the fact that the second verse, in which the titular phrase if used, is primarily based on such a topic.
