Lil Durk wants his name to be mentioned when it comes to the best ballers in the rap game.
Durk took to twitter on Thursday to share footage from his recent hoops session, which included several silky swishes from behind the arc. As seen in the clip embedded below, Lil Durk has officially dubbed himself, “the Chicago Russell Westbrook.”
Westbrook has not yet given Lil Durk the co-sign, but several other NBA stars including Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma and Denver Nuggets point guard Isaiah Thomas were impressed by his skills.
Both players retweeted the video and Kuz added, “Bro you easily got the best shooting form in the rap game lol I see u bruhhh @lildurk.”
According to XXL, Lil Durk challenged a number of talented rappers to a $10,000 game last year, which included the likes of Bow Wow, Lil Pump, Quavo, Tory Lanez, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Tee Grizzley, Lil Yachty, Young Scooter, YFN Lucci, Chris Brown, PNB Rock and Lil Dicky.
Bow Wow ultimately accepted the challenge but was no match for the Chicago Russell Westbrook.
