Lil Durk has always shown love to his hometown of Chicago despite the challenges and decided to attend the inaugural celebration for the city’s new mayor.
Durk made an appearance at the swearing-in ceremony of Chicago’s new mayor, Brandon Johnson, on Monday (May 15). Following the event, the two posed for photographs together, exchanged handshakes, and had a brief conversation.
India Royale, the on-again, off-again girlfriend and mother of his child Willow, joined him on this occasion.
Prior to this, Durk met with Chicago’s new mayor Brandon Johnson to discuss different ways they can help save kids’ lives around his hometown. Durk, also known as “The Voice,” is always looking for new ways to utilize his talents and contribute to the community that raised him.
The Voice also recently change the lives of multiple students at the Howard University with the development of his Durk Banks Endowment Fund.
Durkio and Amazon Music have partnered to award two Chicago-area students with $50,000 scholarships to attend the prestigious HBCU.
At the Lil Durk’s Neighborhood Heroes HBCU College & Career Preparedness Cohort Program, two students were chosen from a group of 20 participants. But he’s not just going to stop there. The Chicago native will also contribute $250,000 to Howard’s GRACE Award, a program that supports students in need of financial aid for tuition.
“It ain’t album promo it’s saving kids’ [lives],” he wrote in response to hecklers in DJ Akademiks’ comment section.
