Video shows Lil Reese kicking and punching a young woman
Once again a Chicago rapper has placed themselves in the media spotlight for all the wrong reasons. This time it’s not Chief Keef, but fellow Glory Boy Entertainment affiliate, and Def Jam recording artist Lil Reese who has brought a huge amount of negative attention his way. Lil Reese has come under immense fire after a viral video surfaced showing him punching, kicking, and beating a young woman.
Lil Reese made it clear it was him in the video by confirming it via twitter early Thursday morning. Reese blamed unnamed haters for releasing the video clip, which he claims to be “years old”, and that it is a clear attempt to discredit him and his success, “The haters tryna see a mf Dwn lol Dey gotta b broke and bored wanna upload some shit from years ago damn we winnin it’s 2 late….#3hunna”. That wasn’t all the Def Jam signee had to say, “Dis wat doin betta den da next mf bring small shit its nothin time 2 turn Uppp f--- it …..#3hunna”.
The hazy camera phone video shows the young rap star arguing with a young woman inside of what appears to be her home. She yells at Reese and his friends stating, “Who the f--- let them in here though”.
After a brief argument she continues to tell the young rapper to keep his hands to himself even exclaiming, “They didn’t stop making guns when they made yours”. From that point forward the altercation became physical. The two began to push and shove one another, until Reese pushed the young woman against a wall and begun to punch her wrathfully. Once the young lady fell to the floor Lil Reese proceeded to stomp her, whilst continuously raining down punches as her friends screamed for him to stop in the background. You can even hear some of Reese’s friends encouraging the beating.
Lil Reese recently released a mixtape entitled Don’t Like, with DJ Drama and Don Canon. Lil Reese even garnered a remix of his single Us, by Rick Ross in the same fashion Kanye West did with Chief Keef's hit single, Don’t Like. The song featured Lil Reese, Rick Ross, and Drake. It was released on Rick Ross’s Black Bar Mitzvah mixtape earlier this month.
Only time will tell as to how this will affect the career of Lil Reese. But Reese and GBE affiliate Chief Keef have made it clear that they have little regard as to what they do and what others think about their actions. One can only hope that these two young rappers begin to see what type of major consequences their actions can have, and how their acts can potentially shorten their careers……in ways more severe than others.
Chief Keef news today as he has decided to not release Finally Rich as a mixtape, rather as his debut album through Interscope. Expect it to hit stores on December 18th (just in time for a gift to your little ones from Santa!). Peep some video of the photoshoot for the album packaging above.
In a red-carpet interview with MTV News, No I.D. & Malik Yusef address the Chief Keef/Lupe Fiascotwitter battle that happened on that day and the state of the Chicago hip hop scene as a whole. Both share great perspectives, with Malik stressing that Chief Keef is sharing his experience and that he grew up around a similar lifestyle at his age, and No I.D. talking about the big picture of lives at stake and that this goes beyond rap. This is a nice video and another positive piece to help improve things within our city.
Meanwhile, as far as a 'beef' between Chief Keef & Lupe, Lupe has been making clear, and once again last night at a live show, that there is no beef as he shouted out Chief Keef. I don't think anything will escalate; if anything, I can see Lupe talking more in depth about the situation and putting a positive perspective on it. So I doubt the story is going to go away completely, but it'll be all positive going forward.
As the sun finally sets on a sweltering Summer, and the Fall season begins to engulf the air, the season change appears to have no affect on Chicago’s steadily rising murder rate. The most recent slaying in the Windy City has two rappers and rivals at the center of the incident, one an up and coming artist Joseph Coleman, also known as Lil Jojo, and the more prominent Chief Keef.
On September 4th, Lil Jojo was shot several times by a drive by shooter, as he rode on the back of a bicycle. Coleman would succumb to his injuries just moments later, after running to a nearby house. Lil Jojo was killed just a block away from where Jennifer Hudson's mother, brother, and nephew where slain in 2008.
Just hours after the news that Lil JoJo had been murdered, Chief Keef took to twitter to express his feelings about the slaying of his rival. "It's sad cuz the N---- Lil Jojo wanted to be just like us #LMAO". Chief Keef's blatant lack of compassion propelled angry responses from Keef's 224,000 followers. Prompting the young rapper to exclaim that his account had been hacked.
It is known in Chicago rap circles that Lil Jojo had issues with Chief Keef, and fellow rapper and Def Jam artist Lil Reese. The tweets by Chief Keef have police looking more into the incident that may be deeper than rap.
Police say that Lil Jojo and Chief Keef are both members of rival gangs. Jojo belonging to the Gangster Disciples, and Keef a member of the Black Disciples. Police say that Lil Jojo had been warring online with members of the Black Disciples. Witnesses say a street confrontation had recently taken place involving a Chief Keef associate and Lil Jojo that had been posted on Youtube. Chicago police are investigating all angles and possible knowledge Keef may have in regards to the slaying.
This is not the first time Keef has used twitter to express his feelings, most recently about fellow Chicago rapper Lupe Fiasco. In a radio interview, Lupe expressed that he is scared of what Chief Keef represents, "Chief Keef scares me. Not him specifically, but just the culture that he represents,” Lupe expressed; speaking exclusively about the violent young culture that has engulfed Chicago. This prompted Chief Keef to tweet, "Lupe fiasco a hoe ass nigga And wen I see him I'ma smack him like da lil bitch he is #300". Lupe would respond to the artist, and then later express feelings of being despondent with rap, as well as the younger generation in the Chi, "i have spoken peace only 2 receive vitriol and malice in return. My brother seeks destruction my sister seeks attention paths to nothingness".
This is the latest story in the saga of the teenage Chicago rapper who burst onto the scene seemingly out of thin air with tales of drugs and gun violence. Will there be more instances like this for the young rapper? One can only hope that this story of sudden stardom intertwined with the gangster lifestyle doesn't turn tragic, as it so often does.
