Lil Durk may want to stick to rapping.
The Chicago MC had the honor of throwing out the first pitch at the Cubs vs. White Sox game at Wrigley Field on Sunday (Aug. 8). But it didn’t go as well as he planned. Wearing a Cubs jersey with “Smurk” on the back, Durk took the mound and threw the ball left of home plate. It bounced outside the batter’s box while the Cubs mascot Clark chased after it. The crowd let out a collective gasp, but Durk laughed it off.
Lil Durk ‘threw’ out the first pitch at the Cubs game today.

Durk’s disastrous first pitch became a trending topic as social media clowned him. Some even compared it to 50 Cent’s infamous first pitch at the Mets vs. Pirates game in 2014, which landed him in the baseball hall of shame.
They said Lil Durk first pitch at the Cubs and White Sox game last night “almost killed the mascot.”

However, Durk, who attended Sunday’s game with his kids, chose to ignore the criticism and focus on the positive. “The love I receive is undeniable fr,” he tweeted following the game.
