Lil durkthe older brother of, OTF DThang, passed away this weekend … TMZ confirmed it.
Cook County officials tell us that Dontay Banks Jr. – the name of the government of DThang – was found deceased in the 7900 block of S. Loomis Blvd. in Chicago, and was assigned a case number. An autopsy must still be performed to determine the cause and mode of death.
Reports say that DThang was shot in the head outside a nightclub and died there … citing alleged witnesses who say they saw the shooting unfold.
DThang was a rapper himself… but wasn’t as tall as Durk, who is exploding right now. Still, he’s released a series of songs – although it doesn’t seem like they ever collaborated.
This is just the latest tragedy to hit Durk’s inner circle – he has lost a handful of friends and relatives over the years … including, famously, the death of his label mate. King Von … was shot and killed Last year. A producer he worked closely with named Turn me josh also passed away last week… something Durk himself commemorated with a message.
Durk has yet to comment on his brother’s death, but condolences are pouring in on social media. DThang was 32.
Our sincere thanks to
