Lil Jojo may be gone, but the controversy that his murder started continues on.
After the 18-year-old rapper's death, one of his rivals, an up-and-coming rapper named Chief Keef, seemed to taunt the slain teen on Twitter. However, after receiving much backlash from fans, Keef said he was hacked.
Whether the authorities investigating the murder of Jojo will believe that or not remains to be seen, especially since the "hacker" retweeted a tweet from 50 Cent asking Chief Keef to meet him. Would a hacker actually do that, or did Chief Keef do it himself before he decided to say he was hacked?
Either way, the controversy has made Chief Keef issue an apology to the family of Lil Jojo and also to quit Twitter until his album comes out in November. It's probably better he leaves Twitter as to not incriminate himself any more.
"Man, been thinkin bout this Chicago street sh-t a lot. My prayers go out to Jojo's family on their loss," he said, before adding:
Obviously, Chief Keef is trying to let it be known that he had nothing to do with Jojo's death. It's doubtful that he actually feels remorse for the slain teen who had the same dream as Chief Keef, to escape the streets and make a living in the hip hop world.
Sadly, Lil Jojo won't be the last teen to be killed, and most likely the war on the streets of Chi-town will continue until someone comes up with a permanent solution.
