Chief Keef Sparks Controversy After Dissing Slain Chicago Teens In ‘War’

Chief Keef has much of the Hip Hop sphere streaming his newly released track “War” after its release to the net Friday shortly before midnight.

It was in early November when Sosa leaked a short snippet of the controversial track. Its full release proved to live up to its expectation.

In actual “war,” casualties are suffered. The city of Chicago, now dubbed “Chiraq,” is no different with many of its Black and Latino residents being its primary victims.

Chief Keef laid out a few of Chiraq’s casualties after disrespecting several deceased teens in his verse, rapping, “I’m high off this Tooka pack, I’m high off this Aiki pack, I’m high off this Tutu pack, smoking on this JayLoud, smoking on that Fat Head, run up on 4-6, leave a n***a flat dead!”

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.

Aiki Muhammad, 17, hailed from the Bricksquad 069 neighborhood in Englewood, South Side Chicago. Muhammad was shot July 16, 2011 during a house party following a dispute over a hat. Muhammad died from his injuries five days later in the hospital.

Friends formed “Aikiville” in Muhammad’s honor following his death.

Carlton Archer, known to friends as Tutu, was gunned down and left for dead Thursday, Nov. 10, 2011 in the South Side Woodlawn neighborhood. The 17-year-old boy’s body was discovered behind some garbage cans in an alley around 10 p.m.

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.

Antonio Davis, known to friends as “Fat Head,” was shot and killed Friday, June 23, 2012 after a gunman exited a grey van and fired several shots at him. He was shot several more times as he lay on the ground. He was 14.

Sosa’s line was the topic of discussion throughout social media.

Sosa’s rhymes are a reflection of the cycle of violence that continues to plague the city’s urban communities. Chicago first caught media attention after posting its highest homicide rate in five years in 2012.

JayLoud and Fat Head were profiled in a tribute video dedicated to teens lost in 2012.

Chicago recorded its highest peak of homicides in 1992 with 943 murders, according to statistics compiled by the Chicago Police Department.

Chief Keef’s “War” is expected to appear on his forthcoming “Bang 3” album, which is slated to drop March 3.
