Mere weeks after signing a deal with French Montana, Lil Durk faces significant legal problems

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that the Chief Keef affiliate was arrested for another gun violation on Wednesday (June 5) in Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood.

Durk, 20, was charged with one felony count of unlawful use of a weapon by a felon.

Police reports indicated that officers responded to a report of a person with a gun, and found the rapper with a handgun. Police arrested him without incident.

Durk was convicted of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon in 2012, and was sentenced to one year in prison. He was released on parole on July 27, 2012, and was expected to complete the parole term July 27 of this year.

Like Durk, Chief Keef ran afoul of the law with firearm violations this year, having been sentenced to two months for violating his probation.

UPDATE: Chicago, Illinois music website FakeShoreDrive has reported that Lil Durk will be released from incarceration on June 19. The Glory Boyz Entertainment artist, now signed to French Montana’s Coke Boys imprint, is listed by the Cook County Sheriff’s Office to have no bond. However, conflicting reports from Durk’s family claim that reports of a $100,000 bond are true.
