Lil Durk Released From Jail
Lil Durk was released from jail Thursday (July 18), according to the rapper's tweets. As previously reported, Durk was arrested on June 5 after police allege the Chicago rapper attempted to toss a .40 caliber handgun in his car when officers approached him in the Englewood neighborhood in Chicago. He was handed down a $100,000 bond and was reportedly to be released on June 19. That date came and went, but the rapper was released Thursday and is now out and tweeting. Durk spread the news via his Twitter account typing, "I'm back bitch yea I'm back bitch did you miss me or u ain't care bitch.....I'm free." French Montana later confirmed Durk's homecoming tweeting, "Congrats my my brother @lildurk_ !! Fresh home to his new born GOD is good!! [sic]."
This latest arrest is his second weapons offense. In October 2011, Durk was pulled over for drinking in his vehicle. During that incident, authorities say he was in possession of a gun. He served three months in Vandalia State Prison behind the charges in 2012. Before his recent arrest, Durk signed with French Montana's Coke Boy imprint. His new mixtape Signed To The Streets is dropping soon.
