Chicago rap newcomer Lil Reese is humming a different tune 48 hours after footage leaked which showed him violently attacking a woman as he has now publicly asked for forgiveness.
While he admits the footage is, in fact, of him, the rapper said he has since changed his ways.
“Everybdy makes mistakes I was out of charcter & ive grown sense then Dont judge me for my past i can admit my wrongs and I apologize.#3hunna,” he tweeted October 26th.

Prior to Reese’s apology, the female victim issued a statement on what went down.
“JUST TO LET EVERYBODY KNOW THAT SEEN THAT VIDEO OF ME FIGHTING LIL REESE ITS OLD AND DUMB IT WAS LAST YEAR AND JUST TO LET EVERY MUTHAF*KA KNOW WHO THINK HE DID SOMETHING RIGHT NO HE DID NOT ALL I DID WAS ASK THEM MUF*KAS POLITLY TO GET OUT OF MY CRIB AND HE WENT CRAZY PUTTING HIS HANDS ON ME SO I HIT HIS A** BACK IF WHO S I GET DISRESPECTED BY NO ONE AND SO YEA THEY JUMPED ME HIM ANOTHER N*GGA ANT HIS SISTER H*LL YEA WE FAUGHT AND THATS THAT BUT ALL I SAY IS A N*GGA WHO FIGHT FEMALES IS ONE THEMSELF…..#ONE WORD P*SSY!!!” (Statement)
The Chicago rapper’s actions sparked mixed reactions from hip-hop artists like producer Chase N. Cashe.
“I don’t condone any violence. I do condone the use of Common Sense.,” Chase tweeted October 25th.
“And let’s admit a lot of time these loud mouth bihs don’t be using common sense knowing they dealing with wild street n*ggas.”
“N*ggas talking about ending Reese career lame as sh*t though. Playas f*ck up too!” (Chase N. Cashe’s Twitter)
The violent footage leaked across the Internet early Thursday (October 25) morning.
There is a video going around that shows Lil Reese, a rapper from Chicago who just got signed to a major label, beating the life outta some girl. Lil Reese claims the video was filmed a year or two ago. I don’t listen to Lil Reese’s music or know anything about him, but I read a few tweets from hip hop blogs that claim the girl Lil Reese was beating is actually his baby momma. According to statistics, one in four women (25%) has experienced domestic violence in her lifetime, and one in five teens in a serious relationship reports having been hit, slapped, or pushed by a partner. So if she is a battered baby momma, she is not alone. (Chicago Now)
