Chicago, IL (WGN) — The death of 18-year old rapper Joseph 'Lil Jojo' Coleman may be connected to a rap music rivalry.
Coleman was shot in a drive-by shooting while riding his bike in the Englewood neighborhood on Tuesday.
Coleman had recently released a song and music video targeting three other local rappers, including Keith 'Chief Keef' Cozart. The song '3hunna K' mocked rappers Lil' Reese and Chief Keef.
Cozart posted comments in response to Coleman's death on Twitter saying, 'It`s sad cus ... Jojo wanted to be just like us #LMAO.' Cozart later tweeted that his account had been hacked.
Chicago Police are investigating if there is a link between Coleman`s death and the tweets sent out by Cozart.
