It has been nearly a year since the shooting death of Lil’ JoJo who earned viral fame after the release of his song “3HunnaK.”
The Englewood resident, born Joseph Coleman, was murdered in a hail of gunfire in a drive-by shooting on Sept. 4, 2012 as he was riding on the back pegs of a friend’s bike.
Witnesses described the suspects as driving a tan, older model, four-door Ford Taurus that was riding low in the back.
No arrests have been made in the crime.
But an altercation that had taken place via social media last week may have unintentionally revealed the murderers of aspiring rapper Lil’ JoJo.
Glory Boyz Entertainment member Tadoe was involved in an online spat with Flip, a Chicago rapper and member of Bricksquad, a faction of the Gangster Disciples.
Flip appeared in Lil’ JoJo’s last music video for song “Have It All” before his untimely demise.
Flip took to Facebook to honor his fallen friend, writing, “Squad!!!! 119th 120th MBAM JoJoWorld.”
Tadoe responded with a vile message disparaging Coleman, writing, “fuck jojo.”
This statement prompted Flip to disparage a slain member of the 300 Black Disciples.
“TURN A NIGGA TO ODE IF HE WANT BEEF,” he wrote.
Odee Perry, 20, was murdered Aug. 11, 2011 after he suffered multiple gunshot wounds, including one to the neck, near the Parkway Gardens, a low-income housing complex located on 64th street and King drive in the Englewood neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side, according to The Chicago Tribune.
This area was renamed O’ Block in Perry’s honor.
The comment drew the ire of Tadoe who insulted Flip once more and seemingly named the culprits responsible for the murder of Coleman, writing, “tay jojo thought da same thing into he saw D.rose and Fredo & keke pull up on him boom boom.”
Keke, born Keith Bonds, was murdered for his alleged involvement in Coleman’s death.
Bonds, a 26-year-old member of the Black Disciples street gang, and a teenager, 15, reportedly appeared in an online video mocking Coleman’s murder, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Bonds’ death occurred nearly two weeks after Coleman’s demise on Sept. 17 when he was shot and killed on Normal Blvd., a stronghold of the Black Disciples.
D. Rose, whose birth name is Ahbir Sardin, hails from the 600 block Englewood neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side, another stronghold of the Black Disciples.
Rose, 17, is currently serving a prison sentence in the Cook County Department of Corrections after he was convicted on charges of armed robbery with a firearm.
D. Rose is a close associate of Keef having been mentioned in numerous songs.
Chief Keef name-dropped Rose in “Love Sosa,” rapping, “Don’t make me call D. Rose boy/He six double-0 boy/And he keep that pole boy/You gon’ get f*cked over.”
D. Rose was also mentioned in one of Keef’s earliest works “John Madden” where Sosa raps, “600 boy, I ride those boys/ D. Rose boy, My lil bro boy.”
Rose can be seen making a cameo appearance in the track’s visual wearing a blue t-shirt and a white skullcap.
Fredo Santana, who happens to be Chief Keef’s cousin, took to social media to clear his name and claimed authorities paid him a visit.
“Niggas lying on my name got the feds at my front door,” he wrote before including a ‘cop killer’ emoticon.
GBE BallOut echoed Fredo’s claims of a police presence at the “Fredo Kruger” rapper’s home, writing, “The feds is all over here damn niggas set tadoe up and hacked his shit and lied on Fredo Santana.”
Chief Keef even commented on the ordeal, writing, “Wtf nooooo.”
Tadoe took his comments further by taking shots at several more slain members of Bricksquad and St. Lawrence 063.
“Fuck you yo lil brotha Jojo tooka tut jayloud Rico Recklezz fuck all dem hoe ass nigga im gone catch me in traffic hoe,” he wrote.
Tooka, born Shondale Gregory, was an Englewood teenager who was shot and killed on Jan. 12, 2011 while awaiting a bus. He was 15.
Friends formed “Tooka Gang” in his honor.

Aspiring 18-year-old Chicago rapper JayLoud, born Joshua Davis, was murdered on Christmas Day 2012 for allegedly wearing a picture of his best friend Lil’ JoJo on a sweatshirt.
Davis was tragically killed following an argument with several men on a CTA bus. The men chased Davis off of the bus and shot him several times in the torso and once in the head, authorities told the Chicago Sun-Times.
Coleman’s death came following a street beef with Chief Keef’s Glory Boyz Entertainment camp, namely rappers Lil’ Reese and Lil’ Durk.
The feud reached new heights after the “3HunnaK” music video was made.
A video circulated on the Internet showing Lil Jojo and Keef’s associate Lil’ Reese getting into a war of words. This event occurred just a few hours before Coleman was murdered.
Lil’ Reese responded several times in the video that he would kill Lil’ JoJo.
“I’ma kill you! I’ma kill you!” Lil’ Reese can be heard on the footage saying.
The Chicago Police Department began to investigate whether GBE was involved in the murder after Chief Keef mocked Coleman’s death via Twitter.
“hahahahahhahahahahahahahaahhAAHAHAHAHA #RichNi**aShit,” Keef wrote. “Its Sad Cuz Dat N***a Jojo Wanted To Be Jus Like Us #LMAO.”
Lil’ Reese echoed similar sentiment.
“Damn I just wke up 2da jojo shit f*ck Em,” wrote Lil’ Reese.
Coleman’s mother Robin Russell appeared on TJ Holmes “Don’t Sleep” late night talk show to discuss her son’s murder.
Holmes asked Russell who she thought was responsible for her son’s death.
Russell replied, “Chief Keef.”
Though Russell doesn’t believe Chief Keef was the actual triggerman, she “believes he paid somebody to do it.”
Another Facebook profile purporting to belong to Tadoe denies implicating his “squad” in Coleman’s murder and asserts his account to being hacked.
“I never snitched on my squad. All that shit is fake. I never snitched on them, and i never said who jojo killers were. Idk who they were. So stop saying i snitched,” the statement on his Facebook account read.
