Lil Durk has been offered more than $200,000 to promote a cannabis company on social media, but the rapper said he turned the offer down outright.
Taking to his Instagram stories on Wednesday (May 3), Durkio claimed that a weed-based company offered him hundreds of thousands of dollars to promote them.
Although he didn’t reveal the name of the company, or what the promotion entailed for that hefty paycheck, the “Broadway Girls” rapper revealed that he’d rather promote his friend’s canna-biz, instead.
“Turn 200k down for a weed post I rather promote my brother weed first — Smurk,” he wrote.

Lil Durk’s commendable loyalty to his friend aside, he’s been in the news lately for taking the brave tack of squashing the beef between him and NBA YoungBoy.
DJ Akademiks made the claim during a live stream of his podcast on Wednesday (May 3), revealing that the pair’s years-long beef has been resolved. “That beef is squashed. You ain’t hear?” Ak said. “I’m serious. Durk and YoungBoy don’t have beef no more.”
While neither rapper has confirmed Akademiks’ claim, Durkio liked a tweet from a YoungBoy fan account sharing the news.
Tensions rose last February when Lil Durk took shots at NBA YoungBoy on his track “AHHH HA,” after which YoungBoy returned fire with “I Hate YoungBoy,” a scathing diss track that found the 23-year-old taking shots at Smurk and his then-fiancée India Royale.
“Why you drop that wack-ass song? Pussy bitch, you shoulda known,” YoungBoy spit. He also responded to Durk’s dig at his ex-girlfriend Jania Meshell, rapping: “Bitch, don’t bring my baby momma up, she richer than your n-ggas.”
Elsewhere, YoungBoy even called out Gucci Mane by saying he used to “fuck with” Guwop before he saw he was tight with “pussy n-ggas,” referring to Durk (who he worked with on “Rumors”). The pair then continued to take shots at each other on social media.
Their resentment for each other seemingly stemmed from King Von’s death in 2020. Von was allegedly killed by an affiliate of Quando Rondo, who is signed to YoungBoy’s Never Broke Again label and who the Top rapper has adamantly stood by in the wake of Von’s death.
