Lil Durk has been riding high after the release of his new album, 7220. The record moved 120,000 units in its first week. Durk then went on a blocking spree of NBA YoungBoy fans and haters. The latest victory lap came when he decided to go pick out some new sneakers.

A video of Durk throwing down a dunk at a shoe store has been circulating. The smile on his face says it all. The rim might only be seven feet off the ground, but Durk threw the ball down with some authority.

The Chicago rapper dropped 7220 on March 11. The album unseated the soundtrack to Disney’s Encanto’s eight-week run at the top of the charts. Durk decided to treat himself, and had some fun in the process.

Lil Durk has been fueling album sales with an ugly feud with NBA YoungBoy. The single “Ahh Ha” blasted Never Broke Again and got his name into the headlines. By the time the album and the dunk dropped, Durk’s fans were fully on board.

Lil Durk performed the diss track on The Tonight Show with Future in mid-March. The national exposure made his name, and the feud, household knowledge. Durk is one of drill rap’s breakthrough artists.

Time will tell if the record continues to sell well. Lil Durk is just having fun and showing off after his massive success. Now he has some new shoes and a viral video to go along with his #1 record.
