Whatever It Takes: Lil Durk

Young & Reckless delves deep with Chicago native, Lil Durk, who has been heating up the mixtape circuit for the past few years. Hailing from the south side of Chicago, saying Durk grew up in a tumultuous environment would be an understatement.

In 2012-2013, Chicago was named the murder capitol of the US, and has even been nicknamed Chiraq for the alarming number of shootings and fatalities, mainly amongst young people. Despite the harsh surroundings Durk came up in, he’s established himself as one of the brightest young artists to hail from the Chi. In this episode, Durk gives us an up close look at the streets he came up in and the family he works so hard for, especially his kids.
