In the midst of celebrating his well-received joint project with Lil Baby, “The Voice of the Heroes,” Lil Durk must now mourn the loss of his big brother.
Dontay Banks Jr., widely known as OTF DThang, was shot and killed outside of a Chicago strip club on Saturday. Several witnesses at the scene confirmed that the 32-year-old was struck in the head and died instantly.
Durk and DThang were photographed together just one night before while attending the star-studded birthday party for Quality Control CEO Pierre “Pee” Thomas in Atlanta, Georgia. Dthang’s death marks the second devastating loss for the rapper in just seven months. Back in November, Durk’s close friend and artist, King Von, was murdered outside of an Atlanta hookah lounge.
The OTF frontman has not yet commented publicly on the loss of his brother, and it is also unclear how this latest tragedy will affect the promotional efforts of him and Lil Baby’s album.
As of now, police have not released a motive for the murder or named any suspects.
We offer our deepest condolences to DThang, Lil Durk, and their loved ones.
