Chicago police are investigating the possible connection between Chief Keef and the murder of rival rapper Joseph “JoJo” Coleman, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Coleman, 18, was shot on Tuesday night while riding his bike through the 6900 block of South Princeton Avenue in the Englewood neighborhood of Southside Chicago. A witness said the gun fire came from a tan Ford Taurus.

In recent months, Coleman had released a pair of diss songs aimed at Chief Keef’s associate Lil Reese, including “3hunnak” and “I Got Dat Sack”. The first song came accompanied by a video which saw Coleman brandish weapons and frequently reference his affiliation to the Chicago gang Bricksquad.

Shortly before his death on Tuesday, Coleman uploaded a video to YouTube which appeared to show him driving up to Reese in a car and screaming “Bricksquad.” At the end of the video, Reese appears to yell back “I’m going to kill you.”

Five hours after confronting Reese, Coleman was shot and killed. Upon hearing the news, Chief Keef posted a message on Twitter, saying, “Its Sad Cuz Dat Nigga Jojo Wanted To Be Jus Like Us #LMAO.” Referencing Coleman’s gang affiliation, Keef then wrote, “Niggas dry snitching #ShhhhhhhhBrickboyz.”

Reese also responded to news of Coleman’s death on Twitter, writing, “Damn I just wke up 2da jojo shit fuck Em….”

Police are now investigating whether Keef, Reese, or any of their associates are connected to Southside gang activities, or if they know anything about the murder. As the Sun Times points out, many of Keef’s tweets include the notation “#300,” a reference to the gang Black Disciples, who are considered rivals of Coleman’s reported gang, Bricksquad.

It’s so sad, that in a time when most musicians make so little money, that anybody thinks it’s worth showing off weapons and threatening, let alone killing somebody else (not making any accusations toward anyone mind you). None of these rappers are getting truly rich off this stuff… why bother with the violent posturing? It’s not the 90′s or early 2000′s and these aren’t the times for the media-hyped East Coast/West Coast rap wars… (that shit was a waste back then) and we all learned that shit was a lose/lose situation a long time ago. If you’re an artist (and rappers are artists) make art… somebody talks smack about you then make better art then they do, if you start resorting to some crapped out violent posturing, in speech or in action, you fail as an artist.

Boycott this little fawker’s music and anything he is affiliated with. He’s arrogant, calloused and could give a shyt about anyone. Interscope should have some accountability too. It’s about time they pay for giving artists like this kid a platform to perpetuate violence and murder.
