In an exclusive interview with Akademiks, Lil Durk, the renowned OTF frontman, delved into the intense feud between him and NBA YoungBoy. He also disclosed a personal confrontation with DaBaby, addressing his association with the Baton Rouge rapper. This candid conversation shed light on the deep-rooted issues stemming from the tragic murder of Lil Durk’s close friend and collaborator, King Von. The interview provided a comprehensive account of recent exchanges and set the record straight on various misconceptions.
Lil Durk began by elucidating the origins of the strained relationship between him and NBA YoungBoy. The primary catalyst for this animosity was the unfortunate murder of King Von, perpetrated by an affiliate of Quando Rondo, a Never Broke Again artist, during a confrontation between their respective crews. Durk expressed his bewilderment at YoungBoy assuming responsibility for Von’s death through his songs, raising doubts about his credibility on the streets.
Refuting allegations and clarifying misconceptions, Lil Durk dispelled the notion that he is fearful of NBA YoungBoy. He firmly stated that YoungBoy’s claims held no weight and emphasized that his disdain for the Baton Rouge rapper arose from his disrespectful remarks about King Von. Durk questioned YoungBoy’s contributions and challenged his audacity in assuming full responsibility for Von’s tragic fate.
Lil Durk passionately defended the legacy of King Von and shed light on the alleged mistreatment of Quando Rondo. He expressed his disbelief at how the death of a respected figure like Von was caused by someone he referred to as a “little boy.” Durk insinuated that there was evidence of him and Von exerting dominance over Quando Rondo, highlighting the disparity between their stature and that of their antagonist.
Addressing NBA YoungBoy’s recent Twitter outburst against him, Lil Durk dismissed any notion that he actively engages with or thinks about the rapper. He expressed his surprise upon waking up to the tirade and questioned the authenticity of the Twitter account responsible. Durk emphasized that YoungBoy is not his competition and refuted claims that their ongoing feud was a promotional tactic for his forthcoming album, Almost Healed.
Lil Durk cleared the air regarding the delayed release of Almost Healed, denying any influence from NBA YoungBoy. Instead, he attributed the postponement to the final artist signing off on the project. Durk further revealed a personal confrontation with DaBaby backstage during Future’s One Big Party Tour. This encounter arose from a previous dispute between DaBaby and one of Lil Durk’s associates, Memo600. Durk approached DaBaby to discuss the matter, emphasizing the insignificance of the conflict and redirecting the focus to their mutual financial success.
In a powerful statement, Lil Durk asserted that he cannot associate with artists who collaborate with those responsible for harming his loved ones. He emphasized that his stance transcends music and revolves around loyalty and respect. While he acknowledged that he harbors no ill intent or desire for violence, Durk made it clear that he cannot support those who align themselves with individuals involved in the tragic events surrounding King Von.
