How much money does Lil Durk make?
Lil Durk is a $8 million dollar American rap musician. Only the Family, or OTF, is his record label. Durk became famous after releasing his “Signed to the Streets” mixtape series in 2013, which led to a record deal with Def Jam.
In Chicago, Illinois, he was born on October 19, 1992. Durk D. Banks, popularly known as Lil Durk, is a Chicago rapper who grew up in the rough Englewood neighborhood. Durk’s father was incarcerated when he was seven months old. When Durk was a kid, there were occasions when his family didn’t have enough food.
Durk’s initial break came through social media, specifically MySpace and YouTube when he was still quite young. At the age of 17, Durk became a parent for the first time, dropping out of Paul Robeson High School to join the Black Disciples, a Chicago street gang. He got into legal difficulty and was charged with various gun crimes, eventually pleading guilty to aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.
In 2011, Lil’ Durk dropped his debut mixtape. Regrettably, he was arrested and charged with firearms around the same time. He resumed focus on his rap career after being freed a few months later. In 2012, he dropped “I’m Still a Hitta,” his second mixtape. His song “Sneak Dissin'” became popular, and he began guesting on tracks by Lil Reese, Fredo Santana, King Louie, and Chief Keef. In 2012, he followed up with a second mixtape.
In 2013, he released his second mixtape, “Signed to the Streets,” and appeared on tracks by Jim Jonez, Trae da Truth, and Chinx Drugz, among others. “Signed to the Streets” was selected as the 8th Best Mixtape of 2013 by Rolling Stone 2013. In early 2013, he was sent to prison, but he was released in the middle of the summer. In 2015, he signed with Def Jam Records and released his first studio album, Remember My Name. The album debuted at #2 on the US Rap and R&B/Hip-Hop charts, as well as #14 on the Billboard 200.

King Von, a close friend of Lil Durk’s, was assassinated in Atlanta on November 6, 2020. Dontay “DThang” Banks Jr., Durk’s brother, was tragically assassinated in a Chicago nightclub on June 6, 2021. Durk’s residence was robbed in July 2021. The suspects fled after he and his fiance fired shots at them. No one was wounded, fortunately.
Drama in the Courts
Following his 2011 weapon charge, Lil Durk continued to have run-ins with the law. He was returned to prison for an extra 87 days after being freed on bond. Banks was detained again on South Green Street in Chicago on June 5, 2013, after he was accused of throwing a loaded weapon into his car when police approached him. A $100,000 bond was set for Lil Durk. Durk’s counsel claimed to have nine witness affidavits, one of which admitted the gun was his. In July of 2013, Durk was released.
A firefight occurred in September 2015, only hours before Lil Durk’s concert at the Theatre of Living Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, which unfortunately resulted in one man’s death and bullet damage to Lil Durk’s tour bus. Durk was apparently uninvolved in the incident and was not detained or questioned by authorities. Dirk was detained in August 2016 on felony firearms charges, but the accusations were later withdrawn, and Durk was freed.
