Have you ever ordered merchandise from one of your favourite artists and been ecstatic when it arrived in the mail? This was recently the case for a Lil Durk fan. Twitter user @4PF Rami purchased a hoodie from otfgear.com, Durk’s official merchandise website.
Given that the garment cost the Twitter user $75 plus shipping, it appears to be a reasonable sentiment. “I don’t mean to be rude, but I get the impression you tried to trick me,” he wrote.
He even included a side-by-side comparison of himself wearing the hoodie he received and the website photo. He was correct; they don’t look exactly alike.
Lil Durk come here I need to ask you something. Does this look like the same sweater to you? and I don’t mean to be rude but I feel like you tried to play me😒 pic.twitter.com/z27NvmPX8D— Rami (@4PF_Rami) November 25, 2022
Durk is wearing a hoodie with the words “Only The Family” arced across the chest. The placement appears to be perfect in the top middle of the garment.
The lettering on the one Rami received does not appear to be gold. The font appears even skinnier and to have been screen printed haphazardly.
Lil Durk Sets Things Straight
Because of his nearly 30,000 Twitter followers, word spread quickly. To make amends, the “3 Headed Goat” rapper sent Rami a care package containing various merch.
I would like to thank Lil Durk and the whole OTF team for this OTF merch box. I would also like to apologize, it was never my intention to shed any negative light on Lil Durk or OTF https://t.co/gXJCAQguHF pic.twitter.com/raf0pBB0g8— Rami (@4PF_Rami) December 4, 2022
Durk’s rap collective from Chicago, OTF, was founded by him in 2010. Artists such as the late King Von and Booka600 have called it home.
They’ve released four albums as a group. Only The Family – Lil Durk Presents: Loyal Bros. was the most recent. Durk’s solo hit “Hellcats & Trackhawks” appears on the album.
Overall, this is a fun interaction between a famous artist and a fan. Because the fan was polite about the situation, it appears that Durk and his team were happy to make things right.
