Lupe Fiasco Quits Rap Over Beef With Chief Keef
Lupe Fiasco announced via his Twitter page that he is done with rap after having beef with rapper Chief Keef. There were more than 152 killings in Chicago between June and the end of August alone this year with 38 of them being teenagers, and unfortunately up and comer Chief Keef who’s only 17 glorifies that ‘Bang Bang’ lifestyle. If you follow, Chief Keef on Twitter, he tweets with the hashtag “300,” which is a reference to the Chicago Street gang, the Black Disciples. Police started monitoring Chief’s account earlier this week after another 16 year old rapper by the name of Lil Jojo was killed in Chicago who had a known beef with the street gang. And to make matters a little worse, Chief Keef sent out an unsympathetic tweet after the rapper was shot to death that read,”‘Its Sad Cuz Dat Ni–a Jojo Wanted To Be Jus Like Us #LMAO.”
A day after Lil Jojo’s murder, Chief Keef also sent a threat to Lupe Fiasco via Twitter:
“Lupe fiasco a hoe azz nigga And wen I see him I’ma smack him like da lil bitch he is #300″.
Chief Keef was responding to a comment that Lupe made last week during an interview. When Lupe was asked for his opinion on Chief Keef, he responded, “Chief Keef scares me. Not him specifically, but just the culture that he represents–specifically in Chicago…. The hoodlums, the gangsters, and the ones you see killing each other and the murder rate in Chicago is skyrocketing and you see who’s doing it and perpetrating it — they all look like Chief Keef.”
Lupe responded to Chief Keef’s threatening tweet by stating he wasn’t interested in indulging in beefs. And although he’s remained positive on records, he hasn’t received anything but malice in return. So he is considering leaving the rap game.
This album will probably be my last. It’s been a pleasure to have all my fans provide so much love an inspiration for me and my family, but my heart is broken and I see no comfort further along this path–only more pain. I cannot participate any longer in this…My first true love was literature so i will return to that…lupe fiasco ends here…peace and much love 2 ya!….”
