D Thang Dead: Lil Durk’s brother shot dead in a Nightclub

It has being reported that Lil Durk’s brother ‘DThang’ has been shot and killed in a Chicago area nightclub. Chicago Media Takeout confirmed the news on instagram.

Initially, fellow Chi-Town native 147 Calboy had announced the untimely and shocking death of Durkio’s brother DThang on his twitter page.

The sad news comes just a couple days after Durk and fellow rap star Lil Baby put out their new Voice of the Heroes album.

Barring any crazy last-minute changes, the album is cruising to an easy chart-topping debut. It’s set to sell up to nearly 200,000 copies from early weekend estimates.

This week, both Baby and Lil Durk went to their social media channels to get fans super hyped for the LP. The album comes packed with nearly 20 songs and major guest spots.
