Lil Durk wants to contribute to the lessening of violence in Chicago. The rapper from 7220 addressed his thoughts over degrading the deceased in an interview with Rolling Stone and swore not to rap about them in the future. He also said he intended to put a complete end to the violence in Chicago.
He declared, “I’m going to start by getting my city together. “To do my part to reduce the violence.”
In a later part of the interview, Durk, 30, discussed his background and acknowledged that, before spending three decades on earth, he had gone through a great deal of darkness and suffering. He also mentioned that he wants to become more business-oriented and quit rapping about violence.
Durk Derrick Banks remarked, “Even if you do 99 percent of the right stuff, you still have 1 percent of the demons with you. “You become enraged quickly, and one remark can ruin a billion dollars. I stopped using names in my music because of this. I’m not talking about the deceased any longer; none of it.
Lil Durk declared, “I’m no longer chasing death. “I’m on the hunt for $1 billion. I want our kids to grow up safe and sound, to be able to have fun, to have a real life.”
Banks has lost a number of his closest friends and family members to gun violence over the past two years. King Von, formerly Dayvon Daquan Bennett, was shot and died in Atlanta in November 2020. Dontay Banks Jr., better known as D-Thang, was shot and died in Chicago in June 2021. He was Banks’ older brother.
Durk and Von were exonerated of attempted murder charges last month in connection with an Atlanta incident that occurred in 2019.
