The unfortunate events between Lil JoJo and Chief Keef affiliates in Chicago could possibly escalate and result in even more violence.
In addition to a war of words between Lil JoJo and rapper Chief Keef affiliates that has continued to unfold via the internet, a new remix of Lil JoJo's "300HunnaK (BDK)" by fellow rapper and friend of the slain rapper Lil Jay #00 has been released. The track hurls threats of revenging Lil JoJo's death, and accuses rappers Lil Reese and Lil Durk, two MCs currently working on their Def Jam Records debuts, as setting up Lil JoJo's murder.
Chicago producer No I.D. recently commented on the growing violence in his hometown via MTVNews, stating the following:
“We’re in this together. It’s a lot of sad things that are occurring every day. Some things are involved in rap and some things are not involved in rap, and we don’t get to see them all[…]"
Interestingly enough, an interview with police in the Chicago Sun-Times said that hip-hop was not to blame for the violence and that rather a gang war was unfolding and the reason to blame for recent violence.
