Lil JoJo RIP
Lil Jojo

To quote The Smoking Section:

A little over a month ago, we saw Lupe Fiasco overcome with emotion as he watched video of friends whose young lives were snuffed out by violence. A week ago, the Chicagoan stated that the culture Chief Keef represented scared him. Today, we see more hard evidence as to why Lupe fears for the direction of his hometown, and the young people who populate it.

[An 18]-year-old rapper named Joseph Coleman, otherwise known as Lil JoJo, died from gunshot wounds late last night. Coleman had been embroiled in a rivalry withChief Keef associate and fellow rapper Lil Reese, even having an angry exchange with him in a video was posted on YouTube only a few days ago. In the clip, someone yells the words "I'mma kill you."

In a seemingly related set of tweets following Coleman's death last night, Keef seemed to be laughing at the tragedy that befell his teenaged rival.

17 year old Chief Keef's recent accomplishments include playing both Pitchfork and Lollapalooza, making the cover of FADER, and signing to Interscope Records who at least one writer suggests should drop Keef who he calls "garbage wrapped in human skin."

UPDATE: The police are investigating Chief Keef (and much more too)

He got signed to Interscope? Ugh.

Rappers have said alot of shitty things ever since its existence, but I dont recall anything as bad as this waste of oxygen gloating over the death of a rival rapper. Throw Chief Keef in a bottomless pit, and while we're at it, throw Lil B and Odd Future in there too, for good measure.

Is BV calling out Pitchfork? Uh-oh. I hope this doesnt signal the start of senseless music blog violence.

Except now he's saying his account was hacked and it was all someone else...classic backpedalling and classic people taking any old thing said on the internet as fact.

Feuds are pointless. Perhaps we call all agree on a band like The iPods. With so much diversity from track to track, there would be no time for violence.

Where's Chris Rock, Spike Lee, Al Sharpton, and all the other dodos who can't raise a voice against black-on-black murder. Oh yeah, I'm sure these guys grew up without a father in the house. Hell...Jesse Jackson had an illegitimate kid himself.

Brownsville, home of the brave
Put in work in the street like a slave
Keep rugged dress code
Always in this stress mode
(That shit will send you to your grave) So?
You think I don't know that? (BLOW!)
Nigga hold that! (BLOW!) Nigga hold that! (BLOW!) Nigga hold that!
From the street cousin, you know the drill
I'm 900 and 99 thou short of a mill

For what it's worth, Chief Keef also has Aspergers. That, coupled with being 17 years old, and living in the middle of a fucking warzone, would be the kind of thing that could make someone speak rather cavalierly about the death of anyone, let alone someone you don't get along with.

Not saying that justifies his remarks, but it's at least more relevant than the anonymous anti-rap musings of people wearing striped pastel tank tops, and demanding more tUnEYarDs coverage.

There's enough crappy blogs for rap. BV, we want indie stuff. By covering these clowns, you're legitimizing them. Their music, world view, behavior is garbage.

i sick of hearing ppl talk about it rappers that make ppl do things. I feel if these damn parents would teach they child right from wrong from the start most of this shit could be avoided. I grew up in the Gary,Indiana once know for the being the MURDER CAP(stupid shit like that brings the mural down in cities). So i know what the ppl in Chi-Town going thru.

You racists do realize that your girls (or at least those of you who have ever had one) fantasize about being with black men...and often are...as they deliver what you never will be physically capable of, right?

Posted by Anonymous | September 7, 2012 7:58 AM

^ "your girls" ... ha ha ha uhm, yeah ... tell us about what girls want little man. moving on.

Posted by Anonymous | September 7, 2012 8:05 AM

7:58...whenever your people are confronted with your own savage behavior and how it disgusts civilized society the first thing that comes out of your mouth is "well your woman want Black men". Most White woman I've spoken to, fear Black men, and rightfully so, and those with the negro fetish are really not looked at in White society as desirable anyhow. They tend to be the trash of the lot. Perhaps if your people focused on uplifting yourselves and holding yourself accountable for your actions, and stopped worrying about how many woman you could impregnate, clothes, jewelry, cars, drugs, etc. you'd be in a better spot. The fact someone like Chief Keef is even allowed to breath in the Black community, much less prosper, is proof of the sorry state your people are in. So go ahead and enjoy the throw away White woman, I'm sure it'll get you far in life.

10:39...7:42 makes valid points. A person, Black or White, has serious character flaws if they find Chief Keef appealing or even tolerable and BV should not waste the space on this site to promote it or even discuss it. One shouldn't even have to look at this dead assholes face on this site. It's not fear but disgust and contempt. There's a difference despite what you may think.

Posted by Anonymous | September 7, 2012 10:59 AM

Sites like BV and Pitchfork enable these savages, and take no responsibility for it. It is about time someone called out the music industry for its role in this.

"this dead assholes face"

Karma is a bitch 10:59. Hope you don't learn the hard way.

8:24 - Speaking of the hard way, the "throwaway white women" theory is bullshit. Take a look around next time you're on the subway dude...that is if you aren't too scared to look at a black guy's woman for fear of getting your ass beat.

Lil Jojo learned about karma the hard way, didn't he 11:20?

He's a dead asshole since he lived a life that got him to where he is, my karma is fine. If I'm cut down by a bullet to the back it won't be due to my karma. Ironically it would most likely be from the fact that society allows people like Lil JoJo and Chief Keef to exist.

To 7:58 the only thing worse in this country to be besides Black would be to be a white woman with children married to a white man. Your ass is sure to come up missing or dead. Oh yeah you people kill the kids too. Even the unborn. This whole world is fucked up your race too. So when we stop dividing maybe we can conquer.
