Who was FBG Duck?
FBG Duck was a popular drill rapper, who was also known for his feuds with Chicago rappers King Von, Chief Keef, and Lil Durk stemming from an alleged gang feud. In the aftermath of his death, several fans began to speculate about King Von and Lil Durk’s alleged reaction to the shooting of FBG Duck. However, it appears that neither King Von or Lil Durk has reacted to FBG Duck’s tragic death at the time of writing this report.
Duck notably paid respect to Fredo Santana — a Chicago rapper who died of kidney and liver failure in 2018, despite the feud amid their respective crews.
Just in December last year, FBG Duck honored Chicago rappers who passed away in the viral record Chicago Legends.
While it appears that FBG Duck was the victim of a targeted hit, the shooting has not been confirmed to be gang affiliated. FBG Duck has been releasing several music videos this year — five in the last month, which has racked up millions of views. The prolific independent rapper also released an EP Big Clout earlier this year.
FBG Duck was looked up to by many Chicago youth from his neighborhood due to his success as an independent musician. He was also a father to a young daughter, who he celebrated on Instagram earlier this year.
