Interscope artist Chief Keef took to Twitter to reveal the release date for his debut solo album. But not before addressing the controversy over a fellow Chicago rapper’s death that has caused the rapper to be not as outspoken on the social media platform as he was before.
“since I was put in a messed up spot I think that I finna sign off this twitter sh*t for awhile or at least til my album drops on 11/27!” he wrote.
“album comin 11/27.. maybe sooner. Fredo gbe mixtape comin soon 2,” he wrote.
Chief Keef first came on the Hip-Hop scene through the underground rap circuit with his viral hit “Don’t Like.” The track even prompted G.O.O.D. Music founder Kanye West to record a remix of his own.
Chief Keef has been in the news as of late for controversial tweets he made following the death of Chicago rapper Lil’ JoJo. Keef alleges his account was hacked.
Englewood resident Lil JoJo, born Joseph Coleman, was murdered in a hail of gunfire at 7:30 p.m. hours following a confrontation with Def Jam artist and Chief Keef associate Lil’ Reese that was captured on video.
Coleman tweeted a Youtube video of himself verbally assaulting Lil’ Reese with a barrage of expletives at 4:04 p.m. Lil’ Reese responded several times in the video that he would kill Lil’ JoJo.
Coleman was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting as he was riding on the back pegs of a friend’s bike. Witness described the vehicle as a tan, older model, four-door Ford Taurus that was riding low in the back, according to the Sun Times. Coleman died moments later after being shot.
Interscope artist Chief Keef allegedly laughed at news of Coleman’s death on his Twitter account.
“Its Sad Cuz Dat N***a Jojo Wanted To Be Jus Like Us #LMAO,” he wrote.
Chicago police are continuing their investigation into Coleman’s murder and have members of the Black Disciples pinpointed as prime suspects. Keef and Lil Reese are affiliated with the gang and can be hear occasionally referencing the “3 hunna (300)” in songs.
