Def Jam artist Lil’ Durk had a word of advice to the youths of his hometown of Chicago.
The “Dis Ain’t What You Want” rapper told Xclusives Zone he wants children to forgo the life of crime and gangbanging to follow their dreams.
“Stay out the way,” Lil’ Durk said in regards to the violence gripping Chicago.
Durk said there are many activities children can do to keep busiy and stay out of the streets.
“We got school, football… anything,” he said. “Because Chicago is bad right now. You got a dream or something just stick to it. Don’t try to get into another person lane. You don’t do this, don’t do it. If you ain’t from the streets, don’t hop into the streets.”
Lil’ Durk was vocal in his opposition to the murder of 6-month-old Jonylah Watkins.
The rapper, who recently signed to French Montana’s Coke Boys camp, took to social media to express outrage at the shooting death of 6-month old baby Jonylah Watkins in Chicago.
Watkins was shot as she was getting her diaper changed by her father Jonathan Watkins, who, too, was shot.
Jonylah was shot five times in the lung, liver, leg, shoulder, and bowel, The Chicago Tribune reports.
Baby Watkins died Tuesday from her injuries at 1 p.m. in Corner Children’s Hospital, according to CNN.
Lil Durk, who is a proud father of a baby girl himself, wrote, “killing babies go against every street code” on his instagram account along with a photo of little Jonylah Watkins.
“#repost this s--- crazy Lil N----- go around shooting vans up that all look alike …not knowing its a baby in there …you Lil mfers that thirsty for a name if you really want a name N----- graduate from high school go to college get a degree make something of yourself make your family proud.
“…killing babies go against every street code you N----- out here tweaking str8 up for a lol street cred so the guys can call you a shooter ….y’all not savages for shooting a baby you just dumb with no aim #fuckboyz,” he wrote.
Koman Willis, 33, is the alleged culprit behind the murder of baby Watkins after firing multiple shots at her father as she was getting her diaper changed on March 11.
Prosecutors described to a judge in a Chicago courtroom how suspect Koman Willis targeted victims Jonathan Watkins, 29, and his 6-month-old daughter after suspecting the elder Watkins of being responsible for the burglary of his mother’s home.
A video game system was stolen during the burglary, CBS News reports
Assistant State Attorney Heather Kent said Willis “told others that he would shoot the people responsible for the burglary of his mother’s home,” the Chicago Tribune reports.
Willis has been charged with first-degree murder and aggravated battery charges in the murder.
