Rap newcomer Chief Keef is getting some unwarranted attention this week after poking fun of a rival Chicago teenage musician following his fatal shooting.
Following the fatal Tuesday (September 4) incident, Keef expressed no grief in rapper Lil JoJo‘s death.
“hahahahahhahahahahahahahaahhAAHAHAHAHA #RichN*ggaSh*t,” he tweeted early September 5th.
“Its Sad Cuz Dat N*gga Jojo Wanted To Be Jus Like Us #LMAO”
“I Kno Da Real Brick Squad #300″
“Lmao I Kno Gucci WAka Frenchie Wooh #Goofies” (Chief Keef’s Twitter)
Reports claim JoJo and another teenager were both fatally shot last night.
Two men in their late teens were killed in separate shootings on the South Side overnight, Chicago police said. The first slaying occurred at about 9 p.m. Tuesday in the 6900 block of South Princeton Avenue in the Englewood neighborhood, police said. Officers found Joseph Coleman, 18, unresponsive on the street with a gunshot wound, police said. Coleman had been riding a bicycle when, according to a witness, a gunman inside of a tan or gray vehicle opened fire, striking him at least once, police said. Coleman, of the 13000 block of South Evans Avenue, was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center and pronounced dead there, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The comments have sparked a flurry of angry responses from media outlets and bloggers.
This is sure to help the credibility and marketing of Chief Keef, if Interscope records gets a chance to ‘control’ the story. However, the “Dont Like” rapper should be wary of his new found fame. ‘Chief’ Bump J is a prime example of what can happen when a Chicago rapper lets the Windy City’s streets dictate their actions. As of now, Interscope has not had Chief Keef delete his tweets about Joseph ‘Lil JoJo’ Coleman. The Youtube video he released less than 24 hours prior his death are already being investigated by Chicago police. Some reports say Joseph ‘Lil JoJo’ Coleman was shot 17 times, while others say the teen was struck only once. He was shot while riding a bicycle. Witnesses say tan or gray car drove to him and opened fire. (C.K.H.I.D.)
Coincidentally, Chicago rap veteran Lupe Fiasco recently revealed his fear of what Keef represents.
“I don’t know too much about Rockie Fresh — Chief Keef scares me. Not him specifically, but just the culture that he represents, specifically in Chicago,” Lupe said when asked for his take on Chi-Town newcomers. “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, I don’t want to call Chief Keef a hoodlum, but ‘the’ hoodlums, the gangsters, and the ones you see killing each other — the murder rate in Chicago is skyrocketing and you see who’s doing it and perpetrating it, they all look like Chief Keef.” (#Rap Attack)
