During his chat with DJ Akademiks, Lil Durk explained how his special hatred of rats stems from somebody telling on his dad and getting him locked up when he should have been raising Smurk.
"So I really hate rats with a real passion. If you a rat, I hate you bad. Imma look to the camera. I hate f*cking rats. I hate all rats. If you ever told you ever tell, I hate you. Like with a passion. That took away half of my ... that made me who I am today. That took away half of my life, motherf*cker telling on my pops," Durk explained.
Durk's father Dontay Banks was sentenced to life in prison in the early 1990s for cocaine distribution. Legend has it, he took the sentence rather than snitch on Gangster Disciples boss and Chicago kingpin Larry Hoover
