Who is Bella Banks?
Bella was born in the USA, on 19 July 2013 – her zodiac sign is Cancer, and she holds American nationality. She became ‘popular’ the moment she was born, because she’s a daughter of Lil Durk, a famous American rapper and singer.

Who is her father, Lil Durk?
Durk Derrick Banks was born in Chicago, Illinois USA, on 19 October 1992 – his zodiac sign is Libra, and he holds American nationality. He’s probably known best for being the founding member of the record label Only the Family (OTF), while he became popular after the release of his mixtape series “Signed to the Streets” in 2013 and 2014.
Lil Durk was raised in Chicago alongside his brother D Thang, solely by their mother as their father was sentenced to spend years behind bars when Lil Durk was only seven months old; he has revealed that there were times while he was growing, that there wasn’t enough food in the house for him and his brother. He began dreaming about becoming a famous rapper when he was around six years old, and started uploading his own music onto the internet when he was 14, on websites such as YouTube and Myspace.
Lil Durk studied at Paul Robeson High School, and became ‘serious about life’ after he became a father aged 17; he then dropped out of school, and became a member of the Chicago street gang Black Disciples. It didn’t take long for Lil Durk to get into trouble with the authorities, and he was sent to jail in October 2011 on gun-related charges, having pleaded guilty.
After leaving jail in November 2011, Lil Durk released his singles “I’ma Hitta” and “Sneak Dissin”, then his third mixtape “Life Ain’t No Joke” on 19 October 2012, and also the single “L’s Anthem” in December of the same year.
His following single “Dis Ain’t What U Want” became a huge hit, and Lil Durk and OTF were thus offered a deal with Def Jam Recordings.
His first in his mixtape series “Signed to the Streets” was released on 14 October 2013, while eight videos came out to promote it, including “Times”, “Traumatized” and “Bang Bros”; it was then named #8 best 2013 mixtape by the American monthly magazine “Rolling Stone”. The sequel to the mixtape series “Signed to the Streets 2” came out on 7 July 2014.
Lil Durk’s debut album “Remember My Name” was released on 2 June 2015, and reached #14 on the Billboard 200 Chart, selling close to 30,000 copies in its first week. He released his new mixtape “300 Days, 300 Nights” in December of the same year.
Lil Durk’s second studio album “Lil Durk 2X” came out on 22 July 2016, and peaked at #29 on the Billboard 200 Chart; a couple of his following releases were his mixtape “They Forgot” (November 2016), “Love Songs for the Streets” (February 2017) and “Signed to the Streets 2.5” (October 2017).
He signed a contract with Interscope Records and Alamo Records on 27 July 2018, and his third album “Signed to the Streets 3” was released on 9 November 2018, followed by his fourth album “Love Songs 4 the Streets 2” on 2 August 2019, which peaked at #4 on the Billboard 200 Chart.
Lil Durk’s next album – “Just Cause Y’all Waited 2” was released on 8 May 2020, and its single “3 Headed Goat” became his best-charting song, as it peaked at #5 on the Billboard 200 Chart. His sixth album “The Voice” came out on 24 December 2020, and most recently, on 11 March 2022, Lil Durk released his seventh album “7220”.
Lil Durk has six children, while he’s today engaged to his long-term girlfriend India Royale.
In June 2019, he and the late American rapper King Von were arrested for attempted murder; they robbed and shot a man in Atlanta, Georgia and stole his Jeep Cherokee, as well as $30,000. They spent a couple of weeks in jail, prior to being released, Lil Durk on a $250,000 bail, and King Von on $300,000. King Von was killed a year later, on 6 November 2020, when he was shot multiple times during an altercation between his and American rapper Quando Rondo’s crews.
