Swagg Dinero revealed he was arrested at the September 2012 funeral service for his brother Lil JoJo. The Bricksquad rapper shared an IG post of himself in handcuffs.
“I’ll never forget the day I had to bury my brother. Even with all the pain they seem me going through the law still found a way to put me away for the night. Maybe for the good of me and them though. Imagine going from you brothers burial to a jail cell… THIS IS WHY I GO HARD. I LOVE U LIL N-GGA AND DIS SH-T AINT GON NEVER END ITS #JoJoWorld Til the end,” the caption on his post read.
Hundreds of friends and family attended JoJo’s funeral. The attendees packed the Jones Funeral Home in Chicago to pay their last respects. The atmosphere got so hectic that police had to clear the funeral home after some attendees nearly knocked JoJo’s casket onto the floor in hopes of catching a glimpse of his body.
Swagg offered his thoughts on the home going service during an interview with Chicago Sun-Times.
“Today’s a rough day for me. We grew up together. I’m not feeling right. I’m feeling crazy right now. But sh*t you see all the people supporting him. He was loved,” he told the Sun-Times. “Everyone wanted to see him. That didn’t make me mad. It makes me feel good. He was respected. He was known and appreciated.”
Cousin Charles Swift, however, was unhappy with the crowd the funeral attracted. Swift told the Sun Times the groups of young men who lingered near JoJo’s grave were not “family.”
“They say they’re family, but they’re not,” Swift said, according to the Sun Times. “You see all these shirts and you think JoJo must have been a big-time gang-banger because of all the people wishing him off to rest in peace. It’s the total opposite. This was a kid who was respectful and had his family behind him.”
A lot of the attendees took to the parking lot to rap JoJo’s song “3HunnaK.” “These n-ggas claim 300, but we BDK!” they chanted.
Chicago police received a “shots fired” call as motorists to Mount Hope Cemetery where Coleman’s body was to be buried, according to Chicago Tribune.
Police reportedly confiscated a loaded .45-caliber pistol, as reported by the Sun Times.
Investigators believe this song led to JoJo’s demise.
“That BDK sh*t was for the opposing rap team,” Swagg told the Sun Times. “The song was a Lil Durk diss. It was more music . . . killing them with rhymes.”
Swagg promised he would to stick music to continue JoJo’s legacy and make a way for his family.
“I just lost my brother so I have to finish this dream of his, accomplish his mission with this music. I gotta feed my family,” he said.
