Lil Durk made a promise to Young Thug that he'd never reveal the story behind the two rappers' iconic 2018 meme, which features the pair looking intensely at what appears to be a computer screen during a studio session.

The Chicago rapper touched on the viral moment during a new interview on DJ Akademiks' Off The Record podcast.

“What the fuck was y’all looking at?” Akademiks asked, to which Durk replied: “He told me not to tell nobody.”

Ak responded: “That’s the same thing he said. Y’all must have been watching some porn.”

Durk said their mutual answer serves as proof that the two rappers are loyal to one another. “That’s how you know we won’t snitch on each other," he said.
