On March 27, the hip-hop industry suffered a tragic loss with the passing of Lil Durk's manager, OTF Chino. The 24-year-old was shot and killed in Chicago's Avalon Park while sitting in his car. Aside from several emotional social media posts, Lil Durk has remained understandably mum on the topic in the media. However, the OTF rapper recently stopped by the XXL offices to give the scoop on his upcoming debut album, Remember My Name, and, as XXL knew Chino personally, the rapper spoke for the first time on the loss of his manager.

"He'll be involved in everything," Lil Durk expressed regarding the LP. "[Chino] and my manager D Thang, they really put everything together. They formatted everything. I would just give them the names and they would format everything. We just keep our heads up and keep going through the music, because if we stop then we're messing everything up. We gotta keep going."

Durk expressed that although he is extremely saddened by the loss of his comrade, he's going to keep pushing on in his honor. With his album set for a June 2 release, he added that Chino had already tied up many of the project's lose ends prior to his passing and will be a huge part of the upcoming effort.

After suffering the loss of close friend and fellow OTF member NuNu last June, Durk says he's going to continue grinding in both of his slain associates' honors. "If we stop, we'll give everybody what they want," the MC said, adding that although he grieves heavily in private, in public his game face is always present. "We just gotta tear up in the room by ourselves and go out the room and be happy."

Lil Durk's debut album hits the streets in just over a month. Earlier this week, accompanied by fellow Chicago native Jeremih, he unleashed the video for the album's lead single "Like Me."

Stay tuned for our full interview with Lil Durk next week, in which he dishes on what fans can expect from Remember My Name and the anti-violence protests he's leading in his Chicago hometown. —Miranda J.

Rap collective from Chicago

Only The Family, often abbreviated as OTF, is a rap collective from Chicago, Illinois. The group was formed by rapper Lil Durk in 2010.[4] The majority of the OTF members are also members of the Black Disciples street gang, in the branch known as Only Trey Folks. The group is home to recording artists such as rapper King Von (deceased[5][6]), Booka600, Memo600, OTF Timo, Boss Top, Doodie Lo, C3, THF Zoo, JusBlow600, Hypno Carlito, OTF Ikey, Boona, T Rilla, Boonie Moe, Chief Wuk,[7] Slimelife Shawty, and Lil Mexico[8] 6lack

The OTF label was part of French Montana's Coke Boys, and as a result, adopted the nickname 'OTF Coke Boys'.

Rapper Lil Durk's Manager Fatally Shot Hours After Meeting With Joakim Noah

CHICAGO — The manager of rapper Lil Durk was fatally shot in the Avalon Park neighborhood early Friday — just hours after a meeting with Chicago Bulls star Joakim Noah to talk about anti-violence initiatives, according to an associate of the South Side rapper.

Uchenna Agina, 24, was shot at 1:50 a.m. Friday while sitting in a car in the 8400 block of South Stony Island Avenue, authorities said.

He was hit multiple times and died after being driven to Advocate Trinity Hospital in the Calumet Heights neighborhood, police said.

Agina, also known as OTF Chino Dolla, is the manager of Lil Durk, whose real name is Durk Banks. The connection was first reported by Allhiphop.com.

On Thursday, Agina was with Lil Durk at Noah's Downtown condominium, getting an overview of Noah's Rock Your Drop anti-violence campaign, said Devin Jackson, manager for Lil Durk's DJ, DJ Bandz. The group posed for a photo that was later posted on Instagram.

Lil Durk also posted a video on his twitter supporting Noah's Rock Your Drop campaign.



(Noah: "Violence is out of control."  Read more about his thoughts on it here.)

Agina, early Friday, went to get food on the South Side with his girlfriend. He was shot in the face while sitting in his car, Jackson said.

The shooter apparently targeted him as soon as they arrived at the restaurant, he said.

"It definitely hit me kind of unexpectedly," Jackson said. "He wasn't a gangbanging type of dude."

Agina, of the 7900 block of South Karlov Avenue in the Scottsdale neighborhood, was pronounced dead at 2:04 a.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.


No one is in custody, and police are investigating.

Jackson said Agina's death "throws a wrench in the gameplan" of Lil Durk, who earlier this week announced the May 12 release date of his debut album: Remember My Name.

"Just on Wednesday [Agina and I] were talking about doing a tour after the album," Jackson said. "Wednesday night he said 'Be safe.'"

Noah declined to comment Friday through a Bulls spokeswoman.

Slain manager of Chicago rapper had just met with Bulls' star about anti-violence group

The manager of a Chicago rapper was shot and killed just hours after meeting with Chicago Bulls star Joakim Noah and his client to discuss "Rock Your Drop," an anti-violence foundation sponsored by Noah.

Uchenna Agina, who went by the nickname "Chino" and managed Chicago rapper Lil Durk, was sitting in a car parked in front of the Stony Sub restaurant at 8440 S. Stony Island Ave. a little before 2 a.m. Friday when a gunman approached and opened fire. Police said he was hit several times, including once in the head.

"I just know that somebody came to my house and we were talking about doing some work for the kids and doing something positive and he got murdered," Noah said Saturday, referring to Agina and Lil Durk's earlier meeting at his home. "I never experienced anything like that. My respects go to his family and to his friends."

Noah said Agina's tragic death underscores the need to get everybody involved in the movement to combat violence in the city. He said he doesn't intend to turn his back on anybody.

"These rappers, a lot of people tell me, 'Stay away from certain people.' I'm not staying away from anybody. We need everybody involved in this," he said. "The reason why I think these rappers are important is because, even though their message is sometimes violent, they are a force."

The 24-year-old Agina was driven by a friend to nearby Advocate Trinity Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. A spokesperson for Lil Durk's record label, Def Jam Recordings, who asked that her name not be used, confirmed Agina was his manager. Police have made no arrests and have not said why Agina was shot.

Hours before he was killed, Agina posted on social media a Lil Durk remix of "Faneto," a song originally produced by another Chicago rapper, Chief Keef. The song mentions "300" – signifying the Lamron Black Disciple faction – and "O Block," another Black Disciple faction.

The remix attacks the "Young Money" street gang. A law enforcement source said at least two South Side gang factions share that name: One in the Woodlawn neighborhood comprised of Black Disciples and other gang members, and another in Bronzeville composed of Mickey Cobra members.

"This is my city ... this ain't a competition," Lil Durk says in the remix and that he would "shoot the ops (opposition) up."

Both Agina and Lil Durk, whose real name is Durk Banks, have arrest records for weapons violations. Agina was convicted in 2010 of misdemeanor possession of a firearm.

Durk, 22, is currently fighting a felony gun case in Cook County court. He was arrested in November after gang officers found two loaded guns at his home in south suburban Orland Hills during an investigation into an unrelated homicide, police said.

The officers seized a Glock .45-caliber handgun with a magazine and 11 live rounds and a Springfield .45-caliber handgun with a magazine and 13 live rounds, according to a police report.

At the time, Banks was on probation after pleading guilty last August to tossing a loaded gun in the back seat of a car in the South Side's Englewood neighborhood as officers approached him in 2013. He had faced a five-year prison sentence in that case.

During that arrest, Banks was weeks away from finishing parole on a 2011 conviction for aggravated unlawful use of a weapon case. He had been caught with a gun that had its serial numbers defaced, records show.

Banks was a friend and associate of Chief Keef, who has been under public scrutiny since the September 2012 shooting death of aspiring rapper Joseph Coleman, 18, not far from Coleman's boyhood home in Englewood.

The slaying of Coleman – known as Lil Jojo – garnered national attention following reports that Chicago police were looking into whether a war of words in the hip-hop community between him and Chief Keef's crew played a role in the slaying. Hours after Coleman's death, a tweet was sent from Chief Keef's account mocking Lil Jojo.

No one has been charged in the slaying of Coleman, who police said was part of the Brick Squad faction of the Gangster Disciples.

Lil Durk is due to release an album in May titled "Remember My Name."
