*Man, some of these rappers need to just sit their criminal behind down and stop playing games on records.
Chief Keef is already a controversial figure – at least to white people. But now he’s being accused of confessing to ordering a hit man to kill 18-year-old rival, Joseph “Lil JoJo” Coleman, because of a line in a song.
In the song “Diamonds,” Keef raps: “Catch you slipping Scottie Pippin one phone call and you hit.”
(Listen to it below.)
To be honest though, the lyric doesn’t really say a thing about the murder or the victim. Maybe it’s just paranoia, a desperate attempt by some to prove his guilt, or a clever line.
Even Lil JoJo’s mother has blamed Keef for her son’s death, stating he had a hit out for him.
Suspicions were initially heightened when shortly after a social media confrontation erupted between the two parties, JoJo was shot and killed.
Keef has consistently denied all ties to the murder.
*It’s nice when artists kiss and make up, particularly old school and new school R&B baby makin’ music makers like R. Kelly and Trey Songz.
The two called it quits on their public feud.
“I love R. Kelly,” Trey told MTV News. “He recently said that he would love to work with me, said that he’s a fan of mine, and that’s very special to me. I can’t really explain how much that means to me. He’s been an influence and an idol for me for a long time.”
Sweet. He continued, saying that the veteran singer will always be at the top of his R&B singer list.
The bottom line is, though, Kellz never really swatted back at the youngin’. Instead he responded like a true O.G.
“I feel there’s a lot of talented guys out there when it comes to R&B, and what I urge guys out there to do, that’s coming up under me, [aiming for] longevity, is to stay away from beef,” R. Kelly said in a previous interview. “Stay true and respectful to music and to the ones that inspired you to do what you do. I think that’s going to be the key to having longevity and it’s also going to be the key to keeping R&B alive.”
The beef began in 2009, when Trey made a diss record, “(D.O.K.) DEATH OF KELLZ.”
But Kelly stayed cool about it and sort of brushed it off never really attacking him back.
