Lil Durk was granted bond by a judge for $250,000 on Thursday (June 20), according to WSB-TV. The Chicago native's attorney, Manny Arora, confirmed to Billboard his client, born Durk Banks, is set to be released on Friday (June 21) morning. 

WSB-TV reports that the conditions on Durk's release will go as follows: he's required to wear an ankle monitor at all times, he is not to be anywhere in the vicinity of a weapon, must be back at home between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., and absolutely no witness intimidation of any kind. 

After having an arrest warrant issued in his name for five felony charges surrounding a shooting that took place back in February at Atlanta's The Varsity restaurant, the 26-year-old turned himself in on May 30 and had been working to secure his release ever since. Durk proclaimed his innocence from any alleged crimes on his latest track "Turn Myself In."

During a probable cause hearing last week (June 14), police detectives claimed to have video surveillance evidence that showed Durk firing a gun while driving near The Varsity on Feb. 5. The judge then ruled that the courts had probable cause to charge Durk and his co-defendant with attempted murder.
