Lil Durk Says Incarcerated Father, Dontay Banks, Got Caught With $8 Million & Six Bricks Of Cocaine

Lil Durk’s father, Dontay Banks, is currently serving a life sentence in prison after he was convicted in 1994 of distributing crack-cocaine throughout South Side Chicago.

Durk shed more light on the circumstances that led to his father’s imprisonment in episode four of Noisey’s “Chiraq” documentary.

“My daddy was one of the big guys,” recalled Durk who was only seven months at the time of his father’s arrest. “I seen a lot of it growing up…like I say, my head was just everywhere. I’m like man ‘I wanna be just like him.’”

“They say he got caught with like eight million dollars and like six bricks,” he added.

Durk wrote on Twitter his father was thrown the book for not snitching.

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

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.

Lil Durk is currently prepping the follow up to his “Signed To The Streets” mixtape and debut compilation album titled “OTF.” Both projects are slated to drop sometime in 2014.
