In April, Lil Durk took to Instagram to preview his verse on an upcoming remix to "Chi-Raq." Uploaded with the caption "chiraq remix @meekmill u ready," Durk's video fired shots at Tyga.
"Heard Tyga sneak dissing on me, tell the thot bitches I'm not right, Tyga only got one name, but that nigga ain't got one stripe, you backpack...," he rhymed. "This Chi-raq don't come here, you ain't from here, then don't come here."
The drill rapper explained in a subsequent interview that Tyga had requested that Durk change a line about Blacc Chyna in one of his raps. Durk, who was apparently paying tribute to Tyga's girl, rather than dissing her, agreed to change it in exchange for a collaboration with T-raww. Tyga was apparently cool to do a song with Durk, but later dodged the rapper's texts when it came time to work together. At that point, Durk decided to diss him on record.
Days after the "Chi-Raq" remix hit the web in full, Tyga responded with an Instagram of his own. "Niggas think that they MCs/ Can't get touched/ Well it's hammer time/ Who the fuck is Lil Durk?" he retorted.
When Tyga's rendition was released, we learned that he wasn't alone. Game, appearing on the record, used the opportunity to send shots towards 40 Glocc, with whom he has a long-standing beef, before directing bars toward Durk ("Tyga hit me like "Durk dissing"/ Dirk Nowitzki? Dirk who nigga? / Never heard of these niggas / Some of the nerve of these niggas").
Durk took to Twitter to give his two cents on the whole diss record. "Wtf tyga was talkin bout lol he let game get all the song so tyga can feel tuff", he wrote. Soon after, Compton Menace joined the fun, mentioning Game in his tweets, which resulted in some back-and-forth between the two West Coast rappers.
Ultimately, Durk decided not to respond to the record with a diss track of his own. “Nah, we ain’t gon’ release no track,” Durk’s management told XXL. “Everybody that Game mentioned that he say he know in Chicago is releasing a track. G Count already released a track. Bump J is finna get on the phone from the federal penitentiary to say he don’t know Game.”
As to Game's involvement in the situation, management claims, “Game is trying to get a buzz off of us. We ain’t gon to feed into that. We gon drop our single and our album. He might get a response on the album. Everybody gonna have to wait and see. Durk don’t acknowledge Game; he’s wondering where Game came from. They say Tyga paid him to get on the track. He can’t handle that by himself.”
There's no word on whether Tyga is still feeling animosity towards Durk, but Game announced on Twitter that he worked out his own issues with the emcee.
