In June, Chief Keef affiliate Lil Durk was arrested and charged with one felony count of unlawful use of a weapon by a felon.
In a recent interview, Durk spoke about the situation that landed him in prison. “Havin’ a name, they so thirsty, they want a name, [they] put a gun on me,” he explained. “I’ma beat it, though, I ain’t worried about that shit.”
Durk also spoke about his time in the pen, which he did not recall with fondness. “The worst, man. I was at Stateville [Correctional Center]. …You eat three times a day, but your last meal be at 4:00.”
As for the other inmates, Dirk simply said, “It was fifty-fifty. People were beefing with me, or they was fans.”
Ever the optimist, Durk was able to find some silver lining surrounding his circumstance. “By me going to jail, that was publicity, too. It was all in newspapers. So at the same time, it never kinda stopped.”
Watch the interview below:
The incident was Durk’s second handgun offense, with the rapper having been convicted of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon in 2012. At the time, he was sentenced to one year in prison. He was released on parole in July 2012.
Lil Durk served approximately two weeks for his second handgun charge. He is currently signed to French Montana’s Coke Boys imprint.
