What is DThang’s age? As media outlets report Lil Durk’s older brother has been shot and killed in Chicago, fans of the rappers have been paying tribute to DThang’s legacy. We explore more about his life, career, and death.

DThang: Age

It is thought DThang is about 30 years old. DThang’s birthday is on 15 September, making him a Virgo. He was born as Dontay Banks Jr in Chicago, Illinois.

In a tweet posted by DThang, he explained there is a more than two-year age gap between them.

DThang wrote: “Me n @lildurk grew up n never had s*** growing og let us jump off the porch early me around 13 or 14 durk jump off that b**** @ 11 years old so the streets raise us.”

Their father, Dontay Banks, was arrested in 1993, a year before Lil Durk was born. Banks Sr was only released from prison in February 2019, so DThang was born prior to his arrest.
