Lil Durk Reveals $15 Million Earnings From Tour With Lil Baby

The duo of Lil Baby and Lil Durk are back in their Voice of the Heroes bag to release the new video for "Man of my Word."

Lil Durk and Lil Baby recently wrapped up their “Back Outside” tour with opening act, Coi Leray.

The tour proved to be a success, where many moments were shared on social media. One of those moments was during a show where fans joined him for a live rendition of “The Voice.” The cell phone lights lit up the stadium as well. Smurk took to his Instagram to show gratitude to his fans.

“From 2012 till 2021 I still got this sh*t going up… thank y’all deeply (white heart emoji.”

On Monday, the “Gucci Gucci” rapper took to his Instagram story to note the tour’s grossing earning and ticket sales. He is seen holding the plaque with a man that appears to be a label rep.

“250K tickets sold overall profit 15mssss @lilbaby we did it.” Durk, Lil Baby and Coi Leray certainly cashed out during their multi-city road trip.

Rylo Rodriguez and Bankroll Freddie joined the trio on some of their tour dates as well.

Durk’s reveal proved DJ Akademiks wrong, who was skeptical that The Voice of the Heroes rappers could sell out arenas. It is safe to say that they proved him wrong.

Young Thug tells Charlamagne Tha God, “You were wrong” about the radio show host’s prediction on the rapper’s career

Thugger is undoubtedly on a different plateau at this point in his career. The YSL CEO is fresh off his release of his latest album, Punk. The 20-track project features Drake, Travis Scott, Doja Cat, J. Cole, Gunna and more.

On Monday, the “London” rapper made his debut on The Breakfast Club morning show. When host Charlamagne asked Thug about his long-awaited debut on the syndicated morning show, Thug brought it back to his reaction after the infamous Birdman incident at the Breakfast Club.

In addition, Charla reminded Thug that he previously said Rich Homie Quan would have a longer career than Slime.

“I will say, I made one of the worst hip-hop predictions about ten years ago when I did VladTV,” said Tha God’s Honest Truth star. “They asked me who gon’ be around longer, Rich Homie Quan or Young Thug? I said, probably Rich Homie Quan. Clearly, I was wrong.”

When asked how he felt about that prediction, Thug simply responded, “You was wrong.”

Charlamagne Tha God did compliment Thug’s distinctive sound, calling his voice an “instrument.”

Peep Young Thug’s first appearance on The Breakfast Club.

[WATCH] D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser Defends Dave Chappelle In Transgender Controversy

Screen Shot 2021 10 16 at 6.17.23 AM

As Dave Chapelle continues to be the eye of the storm in the middle of the LGBTQ community and Netflix following the controversy behind his new comedy special The Closer, his loyal fanbase unapologetically supports him and some of those fans are in the political arena.

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has publicly defended her support of Chappelle, despite the fact that supporters of the LGBTQ community who are against Chappelle have asked her to rescind Chappelle’s key to the city

“I haven’t considered rescinding the key to the city, and I regard Dave as a friend and as an artist who is a genius,” Bowser said. “Dave has been having this conversation with the trans community for a long time. But you would be, and I don’t think you would understand the whole show, I’m not sure you’ve seen it if you didn’t also understand some of his other commentary about race.”

avatars BHnWzp4i4Gd3HpE3 jOiSbw t500x500

Asian Doll had a few words for anyone invested in her private life.

She recently fired off some tweets, in a rant to get some things off her chest.

“You b*tches be worried bout me like I’m y’all kid or some lol,” she started. “I’ll never give a f*ck you b*tches stay with my name in y’all mouth I stay on you hoes mind.”

Over the past few weeks, the internet has had a lot of to say about Asian Doll’s rumored relationship with rapper, JackBoy. On Sunday night, she had time to address it publicly.

“You hoes is literally FANS,” she continues. The 24-year-old rapper was accurate in that statement. Fans typically invest in more than just their favorite artist’s music. Asian express her displeasure with this.

The “Nunnadet” rapper ended her Twitter rant by complimenting her privates, saying she abstain from sex before she’s intimate with a “pu**y ni**a.”

“My (kitten emoji) a treasure box, ain’t sh*t but GOLD & DIAMONDs in that mf.”

While the rest of the rant was deleted, something that many artists are notorious for doing, it was picked up by TheShadeRoom.

Asian Doll was recently added to Polo G’s Hall Of Fame tour.
