Early Life:

Lil Durk was born on the 19th of October 1992, in Chicago Illinois, and grew up in the rough and tough neighborhood of Englewood on Chicago’s South Side. His real name is Durk D. Banks, well known by his celebrated name Lil Durk. Growing up in those streets is about as bad as it gets, like his father Dontay Banks spent a ton of time in and out of prison while Durk was a child. When he was just seven months old his father was arrested and locked up. Due to financial crises, his mother worked as a nurse.

The rapper grew up alongside his mom, two sisters, and one brother named D Thang. Durk would later famously say that his father had been arrested with the 6 bricks of crack cocaine on him worth around $8 million. In one of his interviews with a magazine, Durk recalled that there was not even enough food in their home when he was in his teens.

They lived in a nice home and they had everything but when Durk’s father Dontay was arrested, he was sentenced to life in prison as a result. Dontay’s wife and his young family had to downsize immediately and move into Durk’s grandma’s house where 10 people lived in a three-bedroom home.

Aside from that, Durk took an interest in basketball hoping that a future in the sport could be a way off the streets, but his height had never really caught up with his talent or his desire. Durk attended Paul Robison High School and by the time he was in 10th grade he decided that the only way he could make a name for himself was like the way his dad had done it on the streets. He joined the street gang in Chicago named the Black Disciples, so he dropped out of school.

Durk developed an interest in music at an early age and at the same time, the rapper gained popularity via social media, across channels like YouTube and MySpace. After becoming part of the street gang, he found himself in multiple trouble with the law including gun charges, claiming guilty to the aggravated unauthorized use of a weapon.

Troubles:

He later stated that his father Dontay was arrested with an $8 million bricked on him. Throughout Durk’s career, he has arguably buried more close friends than almost any other rapper.

The losses begin to pile up for Durk, in 2013 when his friend La Capone was shot to death while exiting a recording studio. Only one year later his cousin McArthur Swindle (part of the OFT collective) was murdered as well.

Then in 2015, Durk’s manager known as Chino Dolla was shot and killed after a meeting with former Chicago Bulls player Joakim Noah in which the two were said to be discussing ironically enough anti-violence initiatives. This loss appeared to affect Durk more than others that had come before it reflecting on the murder of his manager.

Career:

In 2011, Lil Durk took his passion more seriously and started collaborating with French Montana and Chief Keef’s promoted label called Glo Gang. However he was never signed into the record and due to that, Durk decided to create his own name and fame in the music industry.

At the beginning of his career, he dropped two singles Sneak Dissin and I’ma Hitta, and then came up with the release of a mixtape entitled Life Ain’t No Joke. The project became successful on social media platforms and was downloaded more than 216,000 times on DatPiff.

Lil Durk teamed up with a group of childhood friends to form his own rap collective called Only The Family. Growing up music had always been Durk’s outlet of choice, he tried to escape the daily worries of his life by listening to the likes of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, and Rick Ross. At the age of 17 he started making music for himself and released his first mixtape  I’ma Hitta. Shortly after the release of the mixtape, he was arrested for a DUI and a Fire possession and after a few months in jail he was released.

After that, Durk got to work and dropped the new mixtape I’m Still a Hitta in 2012. The mixtape went viral and his single Sneak Dissin quickly gained the attention of other artists. He then got a chance to guest perform on other rappers’ singles including Fredo Santana, King Louie, Chief Keef, and Lil Reese.

Durk’s 2013 mixtape called Signed to the Streets, became even more successful and was included in the magazine Rolling Stone’s 8th Best Mixtape of the Year. The mixtape features guest appearances from artists like Jim Jonez, Trae da Truth, Chinx Drugz, and more.

But that same year Durk got arrested again, this time he was charged with unlawful use of a weapon by a felon and he was held on a $100,000 bond. Thanks to his lawyer, he got to work and he found a witness that testified to the gun not being Durk’s. After spending a little over a month Durk was released from the prison and he right back to work.

In the very next year, Durk made the XXL Freshmen Class list and in 2015 he released his debut studio album Remember My Name. The album peaked at number 2 spot on the US Rap and US R&B/Hip-Hop charts as well as 14 on the Billboard 200 chart. Around the same time as the album’s release, he signed a deal with the popular label Def Jam Records.

He then grabbed the attention of several rappers and collaborated with French Montana, Travi$ Scott, will.i.am, Young Thug, Boosie Badazz, RiFF RaFF, and Meek Mill, among others. That time he also received the Best Rapper of 2016 nomination.
