About Lil Durk

Durk Derrick Banks, who is better known by his stage name as Lil Durk, is an American rapper and songwriter. Today, he stands as the founder of a growing record label called Only the Family.

He was born on October 19, 1992, in Englewood, Chicago. He honestly had a very tough childhood growing up since his father had been incarcerated with a double life sentence when he was only 7 years old. As a result, he had to adapt to a mindset of responsibility since having food on the table depended upon it.

Career and Rise to Fame

He studied at Paul Robeson High School but dropped out during his senior year with reasons of joining the gang war that was happening at the time. By this time, he was already involved in several occasions with the law. But, that amazingly didn’t stop Lil Durk from rapping. One major life moment that would act as a catalyst for this would be when he became a father at the young age of 17.

He started off on channels like Myspace and Youtube where his focus was completely upon quantity. He had some initial failures such as the deal with French Montana’s label not following through. Many such failures occurred but Durk had strong perseverance in dealing with rejection and eventually, he was able to get into rapping full time.

He released multiple mixtapes including Life Ain’t No Joke and Signed to the Streets. The latter one would even be considered as the eighth-best mixtape in 2013. A big accomplishment in his rap career came the next year when he would be named in the 2014 XXL Freshmen Class. That helped him create an aura with higher credibility among the audiences.

His debut album would be released in 2015 which was titled as “Remember My Name”. The song was a big success and helped him to start collaborating lots of well-known names in the industry since it peaked at 29 on the Billboard 200. His consistency brought a lot of organic followers to his music and his second album called Lil Durk 2X would become an even bigger hit.

For Durk, quantity through hard work has been the formula in moving him forward towards success and the results he has been able to produce in a short amount of time proves it. Most recently in 2018, he has signed a deal with Alamo Records and Interscope Records that could be the step for upgrading his career.


Family

His father Dontay Banks getting in prison when Durk was very young made a big impact on his life. His father had 3 children including him. He had a cousin named McArthur, who was also a rapper but would be murdered in 2014. Yet, Durk considers that he has an extended family as well.

His father being absent was a major reason he was involved in gangs from a young age. He is a member of the Black Disciples which is a group that is the rival of another group called Gangster Disciples. The gang has had a significant influence on him as we’ll see below, for the negative.
