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.
