Details are still sketchy but Dthang was reportedly murdered outside of a strip club called Club O. The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office confirmed that a Black male, Dontay Banks, Jr., 32, was shot and killed on the 7900 block of S. Loomis, Chicago.

The weekend was to be a celebratory one, with Durk having just released a well-received collaborative album with Lil Baby titled The Voice of the Heroes. Durk and Dthang were recently spotted together at Quality Control CEO Pierre “Pee” Thomas birthday party in Atlanta.
