After Chief Keef caught wind that Chicago rival emcee Lil JoJo had died after being the victim of bullet wounds, Keef went on Twitter to gloat. Local police are now investigating if Keef had any involvement in the shooting.
The list of things Chief Keef “Don’t Like” continues to mount, but he might want to stop tweeting about it. Last night he was involved in some serious Twitter beef with fellow Chicago rapper, Lupe Fiasco, which lead to Lupe sending some emotional tweets while trying to reach out to the young trigger-happy rapper. This came after Keef had posted some mocking tweets following the shooting of a Chi-town rapper, Lil JoJo, whom Keef was known to feud with.
Local investigators are now looking into the tweets from Chief Keef to see if the newly signed Interscope rapper had any involvement in the shooting. Joseph “Lil JoJo” Coleman was shot and subsequently died, on September 4th, which prompted Keef, real name Keith Cozart to openly laugh at his death on Twitter.
Now the Chicago Sun-Times are reporting that Keef is under heat from authorities, as they are investigating if Coleman’s shooting is gang related between the Gangster Disciples and Black Disciples, two notorious street gangs in Chicago’s Englewood community. In his tweets, Keef hastagged “#300” and it has left some wondering if this is related to the Black Disciples.
Even after saying some disparaging things about Lupe, Keef later tweeted that his account had been hacked, but he is yet to remove the tweets from his timeline. The Sun-Times spoke to the young rapper’s manager, and he did not mention anything about the tweets/comments not coming from Keef himself, “a lot of the stuff Keef does, that’s just cause he’s a kid. People forget that he’s a kid, a teenager...and kids make mistakes. He makes mistakes the hard way.”
Violence has been on an astronomical rise on the streets of Chicago the past couple years, and this is what prompted Lupe Fiasco to take such a strong stance against people like Chief Keef glamorizing the gang lifestyle. It will be interesting if Keef is forced to say the tweets did not come from him in order to clear his name with authorities, and if he then will say the tweet directed at Lupe was not him as well.
