Lil Durk is a busy man as of late. He announced earlier in May that his long-awaited follow-up to 7220 is on the way, generating plenty of excitement online for hip-hop heads. Apart from focusing on his music career, the Chicago native has also been pouring energy into his love life recently as he and India Royale continue to move closer to reconciliation. It remains unclear if the co-parents have put an official title on their bond since spending more time together again, but regardless, Durk certainly wants the world to know that the makeup mogul belongs to him.

This past weekend, a video of the "Laugh Now Cry Later" collaborator seemingly leaving a shopping mall with Royale surfaced online. While they don't show any sort of PDA in the brief clip, Durk carries what appears to be several Chanel bags out of the building. While they were officially dating, the didn't hesitate to regularly spoil his baby mama, ensuring their designer purchases were captured on camera to flex to followers and prove he doesn't play about India.

On Friday (May 5), the 30-year-old sent out a subtweet about his rumoured lover, though this one was a plea for food rather than a diss – as we've been seeing from some couples on social media lately. "Go cook me some noodles India," Durk wrote in the early hours of the morning. It remains unclear if the influencer followed through with her beau's request, but the post made it abundantly clear which woman he's claiming in the public eye, in case anyone had any doubts.

Over on his Instagram feed, the father of six showed his girl a more subtle form of love, including a mirror selfie she snapped (sans their faces) while straddling his laps in the same outfits they visited the mall in as shown in the video above. Do you think Lil Durk and India Royale will be back together for good? Let us know in the comments, and tap back in later for more hip-hop/pop culture news updates.
