Meet Du’mier Banks’ Father
Du’mier’s dad is none other than the famous American rapper and record label boss, Durk Derrick Banks, who performs under the stage name, Lil Durk. Born on the 19th of October 1992, the 30-year-old musician had a rough time growing up. He came from an impoverished family background where having food to eat was a luxury.
Derrick, who was attending Paul Robeson High School, eventually dropped out at 17 after he became a first-time father and joined the Chicago street gang known as the Black Disciples.
The American music hitmaker faced a lot of challenges on his way to stardom and had several run-ins with the authorities, which landed him in jail on more than one occasion. However, he rose above his difficulties and emerged as one of America’s most popular rappers, he is also listed as a vocalist, and record label boss.
Du’mier Banks’ father gained popularity for his tracks ‘Laugh Now Cry Later,’ ‘Still Trappin,’ ‘When We Shoot,’ ‘AHHH HA,’ and more. He was shot to another level of fame when he founded the Chicago, Illinois-based imprint named Only The Family, which has produced many successful musicians.
Who is Du’mier Banks’ Mom?
Though the paternity of Du’mier Banks has never been questioned, the same cannot be said about the identity of his mother, which has remained under the shade to date. However, there have been several speculations pointing fingers at the Detroit, Michigan-born singer, rapper, and songwriter, Deja Monét Trimble (stage name, Dej Loaf).
Though these claims have never been confirmed, fans arrived at the conclusion because Dej Loaf dated Lil Durk between 2014 and 2016 and he welcomed Du’mier within that period.
The identity of his mother notwithstanding, Du’mier is growing up under the watch of his father where he is building great childhood memories with the other members of the Bank’s brood
Du’mier Bank is Very Close to Lil Durk
Having had terrible childhood experiences, Lil Durk is making great efforts to be the best father to his six children, Du’mier Banks inclusive. In fact, the Chicago-born musician has pledged to have ten children and has vowed to get full custody of all his kids by suing each of his baby mamas.
Lil Durk is particularly fond of his son Du’mier whose photos he constantly shares on his Instagram handle @lildurk. The American vocalist also shares pictures and videos of his other children as he strives to give them what he tagged ‘a healthy upbringing and normal childhood.’
Most of the images Derrick shares are testaments to the fun moments in the Banks family; this includes some of his live performances with his kids in attendance.
Du’mier Banks has Five Siblings
As earlier mentioned, Du’mier Banks joined the Banks’ brood as son number three. He has five siblings in all, including Angelo Banks, Skyler Banks, Bella Banks, Zayden Banks, and Willow Banks, who is the youngest. Skyler has a lot in common with Du’mier – for one, they were both born in 2014 and the identities of their mothers have remained hidden to date. Zayden’s mum is equally not known.
Angelo Banks Is the Oldest of the Bank’s Siblings
Born on the 29th of November, 2011, Angelo is Lil Durk’s first child whom he had while he was still in high school. The famous rapper had Angelo with his baby mama Nicole Covone who also gave him his daughter, Bella Banks. We can say that Angelo is the head of what their father referred to as The Banks Durkiokids.

Bella Banks is Angelo’s Direct Sibling
Bella Banks is Nicole Covone’s second child with Lil Durk. Born on the 19th of July 2013, she is younger than her big brother, Angelo by a couple of years. Lil Durk and Nicole parted ways immediately after she gave birth to Bella as a result of his philandering ways; the rapper got another woman pregnant around the time Bella was conceived.
Zayden Banks is Only Three Months Younger than Bella
Zayden Banks is Lil Durk’s second son who was conceived around the same time as Bella. The boy, who was born three months after Bella on the 5th of November 2013, is the reason his father’s relationship with Nicole hit the rocks. Just like Du’mier Banks, Zayden’s mum is not known. The youngster may well be an upcoming basketball champion as he loves the game to distraction.
