Lil Durk has suffered a string of devastating losses in his life related to gun violence. Last November, his Only The Family artist King Von was fatally shot outside of an Atlanta hookah bar, while his cousin Nuski was killed in 2014 at the age of 21.
Lil Durk’s and Dthang
Durk and his now-deceased brother were recently photographed at the star-studded birthday party for Quality Control CEO Pierre “Pee” Thomas in Atlanta, Georgia.
Shortly after the news broke he’d been murdered, Twitter lit up with reactions such as, “Really praying for that mans sanity at this point and “Brooo this is crazy they was just with each other.”
Durk has been on an upward trajectory over the past couple of years in terms of his rap career. Most recently, he dropped a new collaborative project with Lil Baby called The Voice of the Heroes. The 18-track project includes features from Travis Scott, Young Thug, Rod Wave and Meek Mill.
Chicago Media Takeout was one of the first outlets to break the report on Instagram late last night (June 6). “Lil Durk’s brother has been killed,” wrote the outlet, which boasts 152,000 followers on the platform.
“Chicago 💔 @money_making_dthang,” the post added. “When is it going to stop? Durk, you’re in our prayers 🙏 @lildurk . Most importantly praying for his kids.”
Dthang (Dontay Banks, Jr.) Cause of Death
Details are sparse right now, but Chicago Media Takeout seems to suggest Dthang was the “person who got shot outside of Club O.”
According to Meaww, Durk and Dthang were most recently spotted together at music mogul Pierre Thomas’ birthday party in Atlanta, Georgia.
Considering Durk has lost so many close ones throughout his life, including fellow rapper and friend King Von in November 2020, fans have been reeling over his brother’s alleged killing.
“I hope Durk gets some help physiological help if needed cause he losing people left and right this not supposed to be normal,” one user tweeted, while another wrote, “Idk how Durk still standing from a mental perspective. This is unreal smh.”
Someone else added, “Damn, Durk can’t catch a break Crying face I feel bad for him.”
