On May 25, someone uploaded a rap video on YouTube of the victim and other teens. In the video, the teens flaunted automatic weapons and proclaimed to be BDK, Black Disciple killers.
“These n—-s claim 300 but we BDK,” the victim, Lil Jojo, rapped in the video. Yet another video of Lil JoJo was uploaded, in this video Lil JoJo confronts another teen, just hours before he was gunned down.
After the murder, Chief Keef’s Twitter account read:
“It’s sad cuz that N… wanted to be us Like Us #LMAO.”
Keef’s Twitter followers revolted about the distasteful Tweet. Keef said his Twitter account had been hacked. Rovan Manuel, Chief Keef’s manager, told reporters that the beef between Lil Jojo and Chief Keef was rooted in the widely held belief that Lil Jojo’s musical style mimicked his artist, Chief Keef: “that kid made songs like Keef,” he said.
Manuel also added that Keef was just a kid and folks should remember that. “People forget that he’s a kid, a teenager.”
There is no confirmed evidence of any gang ties between Chief Keef and the Black Disciples or between murder victim Lil JoJo and the Gangster Disciples.
