In a recent interview with AllHipHop, Chicago street rapper Lil Durk discussed his recent stint in jail and his on-going troubles with the law, as he prepares to release his latest mixtape, “Signed To The Streets,” in the near future.
Back in June, Durk was accused of allegedly possessing a .40 caliber hanggun and tossing the gun into his vehicle as cops approached him in hometown of Chicago. Durk’s attorney’s claim that the gun did not belong to him and have evidence to prove it.
Speaking on the situation, Lil Durk told AllHipHop.com:“Having a name, they so thirsty they want the name,” Lil Durk said. “I’m going to beat it though, I’m not worried about that s**t. I’m still going to court for it. I had to do my parole time for my last gun case, this is my second gun case.”
This is the second weapons charge that Lil Durk has faced in the last two years. Last Year, Durk – real name Durk Banks – was sentenced to a year in prison for a gun violation in 2012, after being convicted of unlawful use of a weapon. He was released earlier this summer and faces a parole violation if convicted of a new charge.
During the interview, Durk also spoke on his stay at Stateville Maximum Correctional Center the last year.
“It was the worst,” Lil Durk revealed. “I was in Stateville [Maximum Correctional Center]. You only leave out your cell one time a week. You eat three times a day, but your’e last meal is at 4:00PM. I was plugged in there though, so I was eating on the regular.”
