Earlier today, Interscope Records signee Chief Keef wrote a tweet about a slain local Chicago rapper who went by the name Lil’ JoJo. The 16-year old artist was fatally shot late last night and was involved in a rivalry with Chief Keef associate Lil’ Reese. After the news broke of Lil’ JoJo’s death Chief Keef took to Twitter and wrote the following message:
“HahahahahhahahahahahahahaahhAAHAHAHAHA #RichNiggaShit Its Sad Cuz Dat Nigga Jojo Wanted To Be Jus Like Us #LMAO (Chief Keef”s Twitter).”
Fellow Chicago rapper and veteran Atlantic Records signee Lupe Fiasco made a comment about Chief Keef in an interview last week with the Baltimore radio station 92Q. He stated the following words:
“Chief Keef scares me. Not him specifically, but just the culture that he represents,” Fiasco stated in the interview that landed on FakeShoreDrive.com. “Specifically in Chicago. And I don’t speak this about any other city because I’m not from there. But like my family lives in Chicago. So my nephews, my cousins, my friends, and my peoples they all in those hoods that he represents. When you drive through Chicago…The hoodlums, the gangsters, and the ones you see killing each other. And the murder rate in Chicago is skyrocketing and you see who’s doing it and perpetrating it, they all look like Chief Keef.” He went on to insinuate that the music Keef makes celebrates the violence in his hometown.
Chief Keef took back to twitter today to taunt Lupe Fiasco and tweeted: “Lupe fiasco a hoe ass nigga And wen I see him I’ma smack him like da lil bitch he is #300 (Chief Keef’s Twitter)” Lupe Fiasco subsequently took to Twitter himself to make comments largely thought to be in response to Chief Keef’s remarks. They read as follows:
“my father i have spoken the truth to them yet it has only made my life in this world more troubled. i can bear this no longer…i have spoken peace only 2 receive vitriol and malice in return. My brother seeks destruction my sister seeks attention paths to nothingness i’d die for them…but they’d probably spit on my grave…i still will die for them…just bury me in a place far from their reach…Amin (Lupe Fiasco’s Twitter).” At press time, there was no response by Chief Keef to Lupe Fiasco’s latest tweet.
