Authorities are investigating the tragic death of a teenage Chicago rapper who was killed in a hail of bullets Tuesday night.
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 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 the 16-year-old rapper.
A glimpse at Lil JoJo’s twitter reveals the 16-year-old emcee traded shots with the Chief Keef protégé. Coleman directly tweeted Reese’s Twitter account and sent the rival emcee a series of insults:
“I am out here on my 2 feets way b*tch @LilReese300,” Coleman wrote.
A crucial piece of evidence of Lil’ Reece’s connection to Coleman’s murder was retweeted by Coleman himself at 4:50 p.m.
Reece wrote that he had “goons” who would handle Coleman.
“LilReese300: @OsoArrogantJoJo ay u f*ckin opp I got goons in Miami dat will handle u ask my nigga @muneyjordan he do too lmao.”
Coleman tweeted his location nearly three hours before his untimely demise at 5:13 p.m. He wrote on his Twitter account, “Im on #069 Im Out Here.”
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 heard occasionally referencing the “3 hunna (300)” in songs.
