Robin McGraw’s book, ‘What’s Age Got To Do With It?’ accurately reflects the correlation between Lil Durk’s age and his accomplishments as a rapper.
Lil Durk, also known as Durk Derrick Banks, is an emerging rapper from Chicago, USA. Apart from his primary profession, Durk is also a singer and songwriter.
He is the founder and lead member of the record label, ‘Only The Family (OTF).’
Durk’s passion for music was sparked at a very young age, and he initiated his career as a musician by releasing self-produced mix tapes through his record label.
Lil Durk’s upcoming album ‘Almost Healed’ is scheduled to be released on May 26th. However, his rival, NBA YoungBoy, was also set to unveil his album titled ‘Richest Opp’ on the same day as Durk.
The YoungBoy crossed lines when he took a jab at Durk on social media and labeled him a b*tch.
Durk and YoungBoy’s feud commenced last February when the OTF leader belittled YoungBoy on his 7220 track “AHH HA.”
DJ Akademiks recently disclosed that the duo had resolved their differences and are no longer quarreling.
Regrettably, this world is no place for good deeds. DJ Akademiks’ statement backfired on him horrendously. While Durk initially liked a post showing Ak’s comments, he later insinuated that he wasn’t friends with the YoungBoy and cursed the DJ.
NBA YoungBoy also disagreed with the DJ’s statement and tweeted, “Ak you a b*tch along with his industry friends I love this shit it turns out the same way every time.”
It seems NBA YoungBoy had a lot of free time on his hands since he made a mountain out of a molehill and escalated things even further by instigating a war on Twitter.
The YoungBoy took a potshot at Durk’s ex-girlfriend, India Royale, and also targeted Akademiks for discussing his album sales.
Rappers are renowned for using foul language, but the NBA YoungBoy even surpassed that threshold in his tweets against Durk and Akademiks.
Lil Durk’s age played a part in him responding relatively maturely to the NBA YoungBoy. He and DJ Akademiks put an end to the war of tweets in a rather sensible manner.
It appears the YoungBoy escalated his feud with Lil Durk solely to garner attention and build anticipation prior to the release of his album.
Lil Durk and rapper 6ix9ine encounter
It turns out the YoungBoy succeeded in achieving his objective because now Lil Durk has also brought himself into controversy just to create some buzz for his new album.
He opted to keep fans entertained with some amusing 6ix9ine DMs on Instagram.
Everyone is aware that just like the NBA YoungBoy, 6ix9ine is also Durk’s long-standing rival.
In the conversation, Durk gets straight to the point with 6ix9ine and asks him to box in Dubai for $50 million of the Chicago rapper’s own money.
Durk messaged the controversial rapper on Instagram and said, “I dont want you hurt or dead, you a kid from the burbs, but I got 50 million my own money without help to fight you on tv in Dubai. We can double the money 3 rounds…..go talk to your rich friends let’s set it up September – stop the violence, lol.”
6ix9ine responded much more shrewdly than anyone could have anticipated. He bluntly told Lil Durk that his messages were a plea for attention to boost his upcoming album.
Furthermore, he discarded Durk’s offer and volunteered to fight him for free in Miami. Durk expressed his desire to settle things amicably with Tekashi, but he’s not amenable to his terms.
Rap Alert shared a screenshot of Durk’s Instagram post on their Twitter account.
In response to Tekashi’s counteroffer, Lil Durk stated that he wasn’t really interested in engaging in a free fight with him and all he wanted was to beat him for some money.
Unquestionably, Lil Durk’s age played no role in his interaction with a younger rival because he acted most immaturely.
Perhaps someone imparted some wisdom to him a few hours later, which is why he removed the infamous post from his Instagram.
What was the purpose of engaging in a skirmish with two of his rivals when Lil Durk eventually had to delay the release of his album?
