AceShowbiz - Lil Durk has left fans baffled over his recent claim. Many online users were questioning what the "Laugh Now Cry Later" rapper means by declaring he has been blackballed.
The 30-year-old emcee, born Durk Derrick Banks, made the statement on his Instagram Story. "I been doing this s**t black balled," he penned alongside a crying laughing emoji.
Durk didn't give much context to his post, prompting one person to ask, "how is he blackballed with the whole industry on his albums with mainstream features." Another assumed, "He's obviously trolling."
Durk has worked with some big names though, such as Drake and J. Cole. Speaking about his new collaboration with the latter, Durk told XXL, "We were just trying to figure out like what's the right person to put on it."
" 'Cause it’s one of those songs where if it's not the right person to do the second verse… I feel like Cole can bring the energy that I'm looking for to it," he added. "So, if it wasn't J. Cole, it'd be [Kanye], but Ye, he tucked away somewhere."
