Lil Durk can be credited with helping shine a spotlight on the senseless violence afflicting his hometown of Chicago.
Durk told HipHopDX during a phone interview that the mainstream media should focus more on the violence in Chicago.
“There’s a lot of homicides,” Durk said. “A lot going on that people don’t talk about. I can’t pinpoint, but a lot of things that’s going on that I can’t see anything being spoken about.”
Durk told the world he wouldn’t hide his truth from anyone when promoting his debut album “Remember My Name” in April 2014.
Durk posted a “Stop The Violence” mural to his IG account with a caption, reading, “Don’t blame me for rappin the truth and telling my story about my city #stv.”
Lil Durk has witnessed much violence and lost many loved ones to the streets. These trials and tribulations have been the focal points in his music.
Durk’s lost several friends include Pluto, J Munna and L’A Capone, to name a few.
J Munna, born Jerome Wood, died after suffering a gunshot wound to the head on Labor Day 2013 in the West Woodlawn neighborhood. He was 21.
L’A Capone, whose birth name is Leonard Anderson, was murdered upon leaving a studio session when an unknown assailant fired several shots, striking the “Round Here” rapper in the right thigh and lower back. He was 17.
Durk dedicated his “Times” music video to his deceased friends.
Durk has been vocal on his stance against the violence in his hometown, especially against children.
“We gotta slow da murder rate up in Chicago on da kids n****s b****s,” he wrote on Twitter.
