Joseph "Lil Jo Jo" Coleman was gunned down on September 4, 2012, in a drive-by while riding on the back of a friend's bike. The aspiring MC's murder came on the heels of being involved in a street beef with Chief Keef and Lil Reese and releasing a diss song named "3HunnaK," on which he went at Keef and the whole Black Disciples gang. Jo Jo ran with rival gang Bricksquad Gangster Disciples.
After the teen's death, a tweet was sent from Keef’s account laughing at the senseless killing, stating, “HaHa…Its Sad Cuz Dat N---a Jojo Wanted To Be Like Us.” Keef later claimed that his Twitter was hacked.
Jo Jo's death sparked several more murders throughout the city.
