Lil Durk Gives Spike Lee’s ‘Chiraq’ Film A Thumbs Down



Lil Durk is the latest Chicago rapper to give Spike Lee’s “Chi-Raq” film the thumbs down.

Durk used the project’s DVD case as a dustpan symbolizing the project was trash.

“This movie so a--,” he said.

Lil Durk was leery of the project after viewing the trailer in November.



“Respect spike lee but that don’t look like a Chiraq film,” the “300 Days, 300 Nights” rapper wrote on Twitter.



Lil Durk previously revealed him and Lil Reese were approached to star in Spike Lee’s “Chiraq” film during an interview with 107. 5 WGCI’s Kyle, Kendra and Leon.



“Me and Reese was politicking with Spike and [Nick Cannon]. But we just told em, ‘We a be cool with the soundtrack,’” Durk explained. “We’re tryna do this tour. You gotta be on set for this many… plus I just dropped my album. We might just end up on the soundtrack.”



Lil Durk said he is on the fence regarding the “Chiraq” project.

“The thoughts of it… I look at it 50/50. The mayor cause Chiraq is not on the map. Chicago is on the map. I understand the mayor 100 percent,” he said. “They think Chiraq is part of the violence. You know it is cause look at the name. But then again I see Spike Lee cause he going off what’s going on. If you type in and do your research on Chicago, it’s gonna say ‘Chiraq.’”

Durk said similar words during an interview with HipHopWired.

“That’s something we created,” he said. “Cause Iraq War, it’s crazy. We just mix it with Chiraq for all the bullsh*t going on. You got a lot of positive people in Chicago that don’t really like that name. They a say ‘We anti-Chiraq. It’s not Chiraq, it’s Chicago.’ Spike Lee just doing what’s today. He’s doing what’s going on. What people really wanna see.”
