Lil Durk, who’s been nominated for three GRAMMYS, was injured after an on-stage explosion during his set at Lollapalooza in Chicago.
Video of the incident (seen here) shows the rapper near the front of the stage when an explosion of smoke occurred very close to him. Durk immediately turned away from the smoke and covered his face with a shirt.
On Sunday, July 31, Durk posted a photo from the hospital that shows a heavy bandage on his eye.
Lil Durk Wants To Take A Short Break
“Due to the incident that happened at Lollapalooza in Chicago on stage, I’ma take a break & focus on my health,” he captioned the photo. “I finished my performance yesterday for my fans. Appreciate y’all.”
According to reports, Durk was about halfway through his set when the incident happened. It’s not known if the explosion was planned and Durk simply got too close to it, or if it was a complete accident.
After his social media post, several hip hops stars wished him well. “Get well King,” Swizz Beatz commented. T.I. wrote, “Shake back King.”
