Lil Durk Says Father, Dontay Banks, Received A Life Sentence In Prison For Not Snitching

Lil Durk is known to reminisce on his father. This time around, the OTF frontman discussed brief details on the circumstances that led to his father’s incarceration.

“They gave my daddy life in jail for not telling #realnigga,” Durk wrote on Twitter.

Durk’s father, Dontay Banks, was sentenced to life in prison in 1994 for his role in distributing crack-cocaine in South Side Chicago.

A then-25-year-old Banks was labeled the ringleader of a criminal enterprise that included associates Robert Shipp, 21; and 25-year-old Mario Dunlap and Alton Mills, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Banks was a reputed member of the notorious Gangster Disciples street gang.

Banks’ suppliers received significantly lower sentences due to their cooperation with prosecutors.

Carneil Simmons, 48, and L.C. Godfrey, 54, plead guilty for their roles in drug distribution and testified against Banks and his cohorts.

They told prosecutors they distributed more than 85 kilos of cocaine to Banks from fall 1991 to May 1993, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Durk’s father has long been the central focus in the Coke Boy’s music.

In “52 Bars,” Durk raps, “Son needed his daddy, I still need him right now/He doing life in the Feds need that appeal right now.”

Durk references his father again in “Dis Ain’t What U Want,” rapping, “Daddy doing life, snitches doing months.”

Durk got even more personal on French Montana’s “Coke Boys 4” mixtape where he made several more references to his father.

Durk is suffering from paranoia due to his father’s as rhymed in the single “Paranoid.”

Durk hit French’s remix, rapping, “Daddy gone, I was a lost child, nigga/I married the streets, kissed my mama goodbye/She say ’17?,’ the way she thinking, had dreams I’ma die.”

Durk name-drops his father again in “Act Like That,” rapping, “Remember I ain’t have no money, remember I was a youngin’/Remember I told my momma that I was out her thuggin’/Just to get kicks, you see/My daddy caught whips and now he copped a plea.”

Banks will be eligible for parole in 2024.

        Yall stupid mutherfuckers GD’s and BD’s all use to be under the same set the BGDN. In the 90’s the BD’s and the GD’s started fueding and the BD’s broke away…do your research know your facts…so there’s a good chance his pops was a BD but at that time they were all considered GD’s (actually BGDN but they dropped the B after the fued with the BD’s)
