South Side Story: A Chief Keef Timeline

Chief Keef Receives Backlash for Tweeting About JoJo's Death

When: September 5, 2012

What Happened: Back in September, an unfortunate incident involving 18-year-old Joseph "JoJo" Coleman received national attention. An alleged gang member who had just begun his rap career, JoJo was gunned down in Chicago’s South Side neighborhood while riding a bike. He was pronounced dead at the University of Chicago Medical Center.

Keef wasn’t directly associated with the murder, but the two did have some tension. JoJo had made dis videos aimed at Keef's crew, specifically Lil Durk. When word got out about his death, Keef took to Twitter to tweet about it. “Its Sad Cuz Dat Nigga JoJo Wanted To Be Jus Like Us #LMAO.” Another tweet was sent referring to his JoJo’s “Brickboyz” crew. “Niggas dry snitching #ShhhhhhhhBrickboyz.”

He received a considerable backlash for his callousness. Later he stated that his Twitter account was hacked, trying to clear the air by extending his prayers to JoJo’s family and assuring Twitter that he had nothing to do with JoJo’s death.
