Who are DDG’s siblings?

Darion Breckenridge was DDG’s older half-brother who was tragically killed in 2014. The 21-year-old was found shot in his car with multiple wounds to his neck and chest slumped over the steering wheel of the car back in 2014.

His killers were never found. DDG turned away from the streets and became more creative after his brother was killed.

He explained to Vlad TV: “I've been around selling drugs and guns…when that happened it kind of deterred me away from it even more. When my brother passed away my mom got extra money for the funeral so she asked me if I wanted a camera or a car.”

After choosing a camera DDG shot his first viral video two days later changing the trajectory of his life. Despite his troubled past, Darion turned out to be a positive influence on DDG.
