KILLED: Chief Keef
THE STEPBROTHER of teen rapper Chief Keef was gunned down last week in Chicago, according to local reports.
Up-and-coming rapper, Ulysses “YPN Boomtown” Gissendanner III, who is related to the star through his stepfather, was fatally shot in his car following a visit to his uncle in the West Pullman neighbourhood.
Yesterday Chief Keef took to his Twitter today to share his condolences. He wrote: “R I P Bro BooMan #NoWorries #Bang [sic].”
The 19-year-old’s death follows the murders of several young local rappers shot and killed in the city over the past few months, including the death of rising hip-hop star and Chief Keef’s rival, Lil JoJo.
Shortly after JoJo’s killing Chief Keef was accused of “celebrating” the 18-year-old’s death, when he posted messages to the late star on Twitter.
He wrote: “It’s sad because that n***a wanted to be just like us #LMAO [sic].”
JoJo’s mother recently went on a local news station to blame the hip-hop star for the death of her son.
