Lil Durk's Cousin, Rapper OTF Nunu, Shot & Killed In Chicago

OTF Nunu's death was one of four fatal shootings in a twelve hour span in Chicago on Saturday (May 31).

Cousin of rapper Lil Durk and Hip Hop artist himself OTF Nunu was reportedly shot and killed yesterday afternoon (May 31) in South Side Chicago. OTF Nunu, whose given name is McArthur Swindle, was 21 years old and had plans to release a mixtape this summer tentatively titled Nuski Got Da Strap.

Just days ago, Lil Durk released a set of visuals featuring Nunu on the song “OC.”

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Swindle’s shooting may have been gang-related. The rapper’s aunt, Sherri Swindle, told the Times that Nunu was not affiliated with any Chicago gangs and added that he was taking college courses in Joliet just outside of the city.

The shooting took place shortly after 3:00 p.m. when an unidentified suspect approached Swindle in his vehicle and began shooting.

Complex reports that Nunu was seated in a vehicle and tried to escape when the shooting occurred. Nunu apparently crashed his SUV into a window-front after sustaining multiple gunshot wounds.

Just hours prior to the shooting, Nunu posted an image to his Instagram account with the caption “Im on sum cool shit.”

Last night, separate pictures of the crime scene were uploaded to Twitter. Chicago producer Young Chop also took to the social media platform to share the news.


According to the Chicago Tribune, Nunu’s death was one of four fatal shootings in a 12 hour time span ending at approximately 3:00 am this morning (June 1).

Nunu’s aunt added that the rapper’s father was also shot and killed in 1995. “It needs to stop,” Sherri Swindle said. “He was a good person. He was a kindhearted person. He had a lot of soul.” Nunu is survived by his young daughter.

HipHopDX extends its condolences to the friends and family of OTF Nunu.

    I'm not from the US so can someone explain... why is the murder rate in Chicago so fucked up? Is it especially economically deprived? I mean it can't be as bad as somewhere like Detroit (i.e. not bankrupt). I don't get it...

    • KelzCT

      ALL U NIGGAS IS WACK!!! U DOING ALL THIS STATISTICAL WORK TO ARGUE ABOUT CRIME RATES ON THE INTERNET. TAKE A STEP BACK AND LOOK AT WHAT THE FCK U ARE DOING! INVEST YOUR TIME IN TO SOMETHING ELSE. ND WILL$TEAL IS A DUMB ASS NIGGA STRAIGHT UP

    • truther

      Because the majority in Chicango is black

    • Will $teel

      aye that makes sense bruh. but Chitown aint more corrupt than Detroit. Their mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is in prison right now 4 embezzlement. Detroit only got abandon houses. Chiraq is bad but like ppl said there r good parts n as a whole city is not bankrupt like da D. shits sad 4 both cities regardless

    • onblast

      Also take into account that Detroit's MSA = 3,888 sq miles and Chicago's MSA = 10,856 sq miles (because there are more surrounding cities); if you were to compare equivalent sq miles that is Detroit = 3888 to Chicago = 3888, then Chicago's murder rate would look like places in Mexico and Venezuela, which is sad and ridiculous. Again, over the past 20 years, Chicago has incorporated more and more surrounding cities into it's MSA in an effort to reduce the way their crime stats look, Chicago needs a fuckin intervention right now, it is truly the most crooked city the US has ever seen which is likely why the Sinaloa Cartel has their US operations based out of Chicago.

    • onblast

      @ Will $teel, Chicago isn't on the list because they report some of their crime statistics differently (translation, they fix the numbers to make them look better) so the Feds don't recognize the stats they provide, that's why they are not on that list any year and it has been this way for many years now. They report a few categories (namely forcible rape) differently than the Feds, this ensures all their crime stats are left off which keeps their name off that list... again it has been this way for years... dig deeper and find the truth. http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2010/11/23/chicago-left-off-most-dangerous-cities-list/

    • Will $teel

      as far as most violent per person chitown aint got shit on Dtown. type in "most dangerous city in USA" n ull get the top 100. Detroit is #6, Flint is #2 n my town Saginaw MI is #5. Chiraq aint on da list.

    • Anonymous

      Chicago is so bad (murder rate wise) compared to other cities because of the gang culture... Chicago is the gang capital of the US.. its like LA was in the late 80s and early 90s..

    • Anonymous

      Chicago is a huge city. There are places that are actually pretty nice but these kids are all concentrated into one area where most of the killings are happening

    He looks like a mix between Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz.

    These types of people represent a very small fraction of the hood in Chicago. I live on the Southside too and there's dudes that rock their pants halfway down their ass and drug dealers hidden in alleys but most of the people I associate with are in college trying to make it out. Keef, Durk & Reese are all out the hood yet still act like they're from it. All these people saying this is Chicago are wrong. Most of us are disgusted by this gangbang culture we are portrayed to constantly have and want to better our lives. Why anyone that isn't from the hood wants to act like this is beyond me

    • fuuuuufuuuuuu
