Lil Durk and WGCI Surprises Two Chicago Families With Christmas Cash!

Christmas came early for many Chicago families, thanks in part to WGCI, Mountain Dew and Lil Durk.  Chicago rapper Lil Durk knows first-hand how tough it is around Christmas when you live in poverty. He donated money to this Christmas charity.

“I grew up with nothing, you know what I’m saying? But my momma, she did a good job; best she could do, but I grew up with nothing, so I know how it feels.” ~ Lil Durk 

WGCI host Leon Rogers said Lil Durk’s donation was a side of rappers most people don’t see.

“I like the fact that you’ve set a standard that I feel like some other little homies out here should follow, man. If you really love your city, this is a way you give back,” he said.

13-year-old Kiara Brooks wrote to the station. Kiara’s father has been in prison for the past 12 years.

“My Christmas list begins with shoes for me and my brother, but most of all I just want my family to have the best Christmas ever,” she wrote.

Kiara wish came true, as WGCI gave her $1,000 for Christmas. Fred Spence, of Englewood was awarded $1,500; Spence has lost his job and didn’t have money to buy gifts for his wife and five daughters.

“They’re going to be real happy. I’m going to get a whole bunch of hugs and kisses,” Spence said.

WGCI chose the two winners out of a pool of more than 2,000 letters. Mountain Dew also sponsored the radio station’s Christmas giveaway.

Story from The Chicago Suntimes

Lil Durk Chicago's best rapper?

Chicago rapper Lil Durk in a recent interview with Rolling Stone stated that he is the best rapper in the City of Chicago. The statement by lil Durk comes to no surliest because of confident demeanor but with artists such as Kanye's new prodigy Chance The Rapper, Lil Herb, Lil Bibby, Vic Mensa and Chief Keef coming from Chicago, that statement might be challenged. 

 "No shade to the other artists in Chicago … but if you got confidence in yourself and you know you're Number One, say it," said Durk on his stature in Chicago's music scene.

Also in his Interview Lil Durk mentioned that he started auto tunes amongst current rap artists. If you don't count T-Pain or Lil Wayne as members of this era of Hip Hop, then he might have an argument. In the interview he says he was giving validation from Birdman, Future and others that told him that he was the originator.

Lil Durk is gearing to drop his new EP titled
