Why Zayden's dad doesn't want him on the streets

His childhood was filled with gang bangers, theft, and violence. Durk's father was also a part of the increasing violence in Chicago.
He was involved in petty crimes and violent acts. Durk was abandoned by his father when he was just seven months old.
This created a level of fear and resentment in Durk's mind. He swore to himself that he would provide a better life for his loved ones.
Zayden is the second son of Durk, and he does everything he can to provide his kids with what he didn't grow up with.
The father of three knows about the violence in Chiraq all too well.
He doesn't want his children to have anything to do with the streets, while his stomping grounds may have been in Englewood.
"My job is to put them up somewhere to play baseball, soccer," said Durk to Vibe.
"I don't want my children to be out on the streets. I want my kids to be smart. I want them to read books or play sports. I don't want them to know anything about gangs or the streets".
Durk has stated that he wants to move his kids out of Chicago.
He expresses his concerns about increasing gangs and violence in Chicago.
He hopes to provide a safer living space for his children.
