Dumb Rappers Need Teachin', Chief Keef Edition

Just read online that a "rival" (Lil JoJo) of the rapper Chief Keef was murdered in Chicago and apparently Keef took to Twitter to laugh at the fact that Lil JoJo was killed. Let's keep in mind here that Lil JoJo was a teenager. He looks like he might have only been about 12 years old. It's a shame.

But apparently not so sad that Chief Keef couldn't find some humor in it while trying to claim "it's sad" at the same time.

To use his own words here, "That's that shyt I don't like!"

This is absurd and epitomizes the type of senseless B.S. that's perpetuated in urban areas throughout the country. Hip-hop and Black people in general, we have got to do better. Two young men aspiring to do something to achieve a better life that come from similar circumstances I'd assume and one of them is happy to see the other deceased? That's crazy! Who knows what the history was between these two not liking each other but the fact of the matter is that once you're gone, there's no coming back. Keef may have a small taste of fame right now to the extent that he can hashtag #richniggashit but in the big scheme of things he's clearly missing the point. For him to not have at least enough respect to keep his mouth shut while using (public) social media just shows his stupidity, ignorance, and lack of compassion for human life altogether. I don't know how it feels to be happy about someone else getting gunned down but maybe somebody can explain it to me.

I also find it interesting that Lupe had this to say about Chief Keef recently:
"Chief Keef scares me... Not him specifically, but just the culture that he represents... The murder rate in Chicago is skyrocketing and you see who's doing it and perpetrating it, they all look like Chief Keef." (source:
I totally feel what Lupe is saying. Have a good time with the music, make your money, but realize that you're part of something bigger and more important than your own self-indulgence and self-exaltation.
