Chicago Police Probe Chief Keef Tweets In Connection To Slain Rapper JoJo

The Chicago Sun-Times reports local police are investigating Chief Keef and his related tweets after his reaction to the murder of fellow Chicago rapper JoJo.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, local police are investigating possible connections between Interscope rapper Chief Keef and slain fellow Chicago rapper Joseph “Lil JoJo” Coleman. Chief Keef, whose real name is Keith Cozart, sent a series of mocking tweets after Coleman was shot and killed September 4. Chief Keef later said his account was hacked, while his manager, Rovan Manuel, gave the Sun-Times what could be construed as a conflicting explanation.

“Manuel told the Sun-Times he didn’t believe the message meant ‘anything personally,’” a Sun-Times report stated. “He said Keef had a beef with JoJo only because ‘that kid made songs like Keef.’”

“A lot of the stuff Keef does, that’s just cause he’s a kid,” Manuel added. “People forget that he’s a kid, a teenager…and kids make mistakes. He makes mistakes the hard way.”

Chicago police are investigating if Coleman’s murder is related to the ongoing feud between the Gangster Disciples and Black Disciples street gangs in Chicago’s Englewood community. Other alleged members have either made threats or referenced the feud on various social media sites. Some believe the #300 hashtag Chief Keef often uses is a reference to the Black Disciples.

Through March of 2012, shootings in Chicago were up 40 percent citywide over the same period as 2011. Murders were up 66 percent. Through the end of June, shootings were up by 9 percent compared to 2011, and murders by 37 percent. One of those murders includes Southside rapper Joseph “Lil JoJo” Coleman, who was gunned down roughly a block from where Chicago R&B singer Jennifer Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew were slain in 2008.

    Stop acting like the GDs and BDs not at each others head! It just so happen JoJo got murked first sad to say. The gang rivarly shit taking over the world!

  • SouthSide's Finest

    All of this is funny 2 me (not JoJo's murder, but u ppls shock @ it). These kids been gettin' whacked all across the city 4 decades! Now everybody got sumthing 2 say B'cuz the industry invested money N 1 of 'em. The fans demand it so the media & industry R try'n 2 give y'all that authenticity. But chicago is not 1 of them places where U can fake the funk on records. Either u about or u ain't! Of course Chief Keef laughed at JoJo B'N killed. What he care 4? JoJo would've whacked him! Chief Keef is NOT a rapper. He's a gang banger that happens 2 rap (if u can call it that). These kids ain't out here playing...Y'all get y'all view N2 the hood from records. These kids R livin that life 4 real! This IS what U wanted rite?! Well like Orpheus sed "Welcome 2 the REAL world..."

WHAT WILL COME NEXT? SAYING THAT SOMEBODY HACKED HIS ACCOUNT OR WHAT WHEN IT CAME TO THAT FUCKING STATEMENTS ABOUT LUPE FIASCO? HE IS JUST A WANNABE, THE WORST RAPPER EVER CAME FROM CHICAGO AND ONE OF THE WORST RAPPERS OVERALL.

    yall callin Chief Keef a kid? While he's waving around guns in videos like he's in the middle of a warzone? Not buyin it. He had one catchy song. Time for his "career" to die. Shit I can't believe Kanye fucked with this dude at all. I was just lookin at that video of him rapping for Luda and Jay-Z spitting bars trying to get in the game. He paid his dues and he's just gonna let Keef coon his way in?

    lock this little nigga up. just another destructive little no talent coon dancing for the white man. the white man promotes chief keef and u niggers eat it up. pathetic. society is brainwashed. rap music had a message. rap music is dead. this is what's left. chief keef laughing at dead kids on twitter. how exciting. everyday i'm asking these young brothers what they like about rap, and everyday i'm shaking my head at their answers. yall need to stop talking about this boy but you won't. cuz these kinda niggas are the ones that stick around now. no talent? check. controversial? check. being a clown on twitter? check. immature fanbase? check. sounds like he got everything it takes to win in 2012.

    • John-Boy

      He is actually speaking the truth but since you dont understand it you call it hating. I challenge you all to research the Minstrel show from the old days. Whites in power have always used sterotypical blacks to make the entire race look like crap. We have allowed this to go on for centuries and nothing has changed except the media used to clown us. Why else do you think every image of blacks on TV is negative including the ones we present ourselves?

    • Make1

      Obviously you are a fan to some degree, to excuse laughing at one person's death as a "mistake" you are excusing Keef's ignorance and cold-blooded nature. Keef had my support @ 1 time for attempting to help better him and his family situation, b.u.t. this ish right here??? SMH, Keef is either going to be the next statistic count, end up behind bar's for this or get dropped and no label is going to want to touch him. his life is definitely in the balance alongside his career. b.u.t. young minded kids such as yourself is why these types of situations are continually perpetuated. grow up

    "and i'am with his manger you have to leave him alone and remember he is still a kid." ^ kids kill Mr. Softee. If these "kids" murdered your mother and laughed at it on Twitter would you be so forgiving? Especially when they know they will do juvenile time and come home when they are 20-ish and score a major recording deal off of your mother's murder? You sound like a fragile minded human, grow some balls and stand up.

    Why do people make it seem like 17 is such an innocent age? I understand kids make mistakes but when I was 17 I knew right from wrong and I wouldn't have laughed at a dead person. Keef is 17 not 6, so he should have higher brain functioning by now and should know the difference between right and wrong. A 17 year old is damn near a grown man, stop making excuses for this nigga.

      None of the rappers you mentioned have the balls to take a stand against an artist like Cheif Keef because it's not Politically Correct or it may make them look like old haters. I really wish that some really well known artists would speak out, because the bar is constantly being lowered in rap for no talent niggaz to spew their bullshit to impressionable kids and teens. The only one who might speak out is Nas, but I doubt it because I've heard him giving Waka Flocka props and shit so his realness is questionable when it comes to this issue too.
