Lil JoJo's Mother Blames Chief Keef For Son's Death

Slain rapper Lil JoJo's mother blames his foe Chief Keef for his murder.

Even though it's been months since Chicago up-and-comer Lil JoJo was killed in a fatal shooting. Now, in a recent interview with BET, the mother of the slain rapper speaks on Chief Keef's possible involvement in the case.

Robin Russel, the mother of the late Lil JoJo, said that she believes Chief Keef is directly involved in the death of her son. She said that while she doesn't believe Keef actually pulled the trigger on her son, she explained that she believes he paid someone off for the murder.

"Chief Keef [is responsible]...I don't believe him, himself pulled the trigger but I believe he paid somebody to do it," she said. "I would like justice to come from this and to show kids it's a better way to get an education and yes, I fear for my own life. [Police] have a couple leads, they're still working on it."

Check out the full interview below.

    • kaystack
      stupid he was nt at a rival territory, he was on his old block 69 which is also close to his rivals, we all livei n the same hood, the rivals live o next block, he was o 69th thats our block so how the fuck was it a rival territory
  • 1800 GET SUED
    [[I don't believe him, himself pulled the trigger but I believe he paid somebody to do it," she said.]] And I believe that's called slander. Also, your son was playing a dangerous game...a game that has consequences.

    I feel sorry for Lil Jo Jo and his mom but...these parents in the ghetto need to raise their kids better/ be more of a presence in their lives. Like where the fuck was she when he was doing all of this gang lifestyle shit talking about "BDK" and shit riding around in their hood yelling at them. Like...you can't do that in Chicago and live to tell about it unless you're always deep and you're always strapped and deep w. your ppls. Otherwise youre a dead man., and even then you'll end up dead or in jail or an illiterate disenfranchised non-factor. Its inevitable, hate to say it but JoJo pretty much asked for this, god bless him

      "these parents in the ghetto need to raise their kids better/ be more of a presence in their lives. Like where the fuck was she when he was doing all of this gang lifestyle shit talking..." ^ the Colorado theater shooter was in college and his parents are not poor. Shouldn't have they been in touch to know he was having problems in school and was buying 1000's of rounds of ammo and guns on THEIR CREDIT CARD they gave their son? The stupidity is thinking it's a ghetto parent problem or even a parent problem. It's the i-n-d-i-v-i-d-u-a-l. Believe me, there's a kid somewhere on crystal meth and his doctor and lawyer parents try to help all they can with rehab, love, a job, and all junior wants is money and meth. Don't forget a doctor and lawyer can work from home. Y'all really need to check yourselves.

      I'm sorry my dude, but you must be crazy if you think that parents have no responsibility for what happens to their kids. Yes, a parent cannot be with their kids 24/7, and yes ultimately the individual makes his own decisions, good or bad, but parents (meaning mother & father, if they're still living) have a huge responsibility for raising their kids right, and if the child makes a bad decision on his own, then the parents can say they did their part. Jojo's mother said she encouraged his music, even said she was a fan. So that means she knows he rapped about hood living and that gang life but she encouraged it still; does that sound like a mother that raised her son right? Respect to all the parents that try hard to do right by their kids, whether the kids appreciate it or not, but ones like Jojo's mother really need not to have anymore kids if their mindsets don't change.

    From reading these comments there is just a lack of respect all across the board!!! And you wonder why white people and other races of people look at us blacks the way they do!!! When you act like animals then you get treated as such!! This shootin was pointless, these comments on here are pointless, I mean really I understand certain agendas when they talk about gettin rid of the black race. Some of you might not like it but when senseless killings keep happening and all people can say is negative things about a DEAD mans mother and how the music sucks I would get rid of that race too because they serve no purpose!!! ALL AROUND FUCKIN SAD!!!! But who am I to say anything this type of savagery is what some of you like, were taught, and worse of all embrace!!! Just because you can pull a trigger doesnt make you a man!!!!
    • E DUBB IS KOREAN

    Either way, Chief Keef needs to be put in jail even if he didn't do it. His music is a crime.
  • Anonymous
    Lil Jo Jo was trying to act all tough, and somebody took him out. I don't care what race you're, if you think you're invincible then most likely something bad is going to happen to you. His mother sounded like an uneducated ghetto hooker. And what was with her smiling? lol Your son is dead. Better start parenting your other son before he ends up dead too.
    • ITS TOO LATE
      HER SON WILL GROW UP TO BE JUST LIKE HER MOTHER, AN UNEDUCATED HOOKER..
    • Edubb

    Black folks are quick to blame everyone else when shit goes down but when does PARENTAL RESPONSIBILITY kick in. I grew up in the projects and the parents knew their kids were getting into shit on the streets. They might not have known the extent.. but it was because they didn't want to know. You're busting your ass cleaning 50 hours a week and every time you see your kid he has a new pair of Js. You don't even question where the money is coming from. Then when they get locked or killed.. they're crying on the news how he was an A student and didn't deserve what happened to him. Maybe if you as a parent took the fucking time to raise your child instead of letting the streets raise him... shit could have been better. It's sad that this kid lost his life... but this shit is happening all across the country in our hoods. Parents need to step up to the plate.
    • truth
      Now that's real talk. These parents take no responsibility for raising their kids; they let them run the streets & do whatever they want, then like you said, when they get locked up for life or somebody kills them, then the mamas are all in the media claiming how hard they tried to raise their kids right. But looking at Jojo's mother, you see that she's not much older than he was, so you have yet another child having kids & no clue how to raise them. Jojo has the most fault in all of this; if he would've kept his mouth closed, he would still be alive. He made a very bad decision that cost him his life unnecessarily. BET is a big hypocrite, because they talk about the gang violence as if it was terrible but they play videos of these fake gangsters all the time. How can you condemn & endorse something at the same time? And comments like the one from this fool below me @28th.... make things even worse. Why are black people always claiming their set is better than the other and killing each other for it, when you all are from the same place and live the exact same lives? You're not better than the fool you shot at, you're the exact same.

      You both need to stop. Some parents who had their kids in their early teens have watched them graduate with degrees and these kids may be your bosses or CEO. Same way some parents who were there every step of they way with their children cried when the judge sentenced them to life. Parents who are together or single. It's up to the individual to decide, just like the individual who knows THEIR kids go to school with the local badass and know badass' mother and just talk bad and look down on her and won't invite the kid over for a meal or a movie to show and speak about how there's a different way of life. You leave them be because you're worried about your own, correct? You're just as responsible, you watched the kid lose it and did nothing. But if that kid turned around and made a billion dollars you would associate yourself and bring up enough fond "memories" worthy of a Pulitzer.
    • truth
      My comments are very obviously for the parents that don't do right, and they also acknowledged that Jojo was the most responsible for what happened to him. I know I'm not personally responsible for what happened to Jojo because I'm not from the Chi. You're right, some parents that have kids while they're still teenagers do their best to raise their kids right, and some kids do well, others don't. But hopefully you haven't fooled yourself into thinking that all these young parents are doing right by their kids; if you've ever lived/been around the hood, you would know that's not the case. Parents, whether you agree or not, do have a major accountability to raise their kids well, and Jojo's mother more than likely was not doing her part the way she should have.

    "It all started when durk said fuck bricksquad (jojo's GD set) and he came back with that "3hunnak/BDk" track where he not only dissed his set but he dissed the ENTIRE BDN (thats a no-no if you not about that life). in that video lil jojo and like 50 other behind him were all waving heavy automatic weapons screaming "BDK." Knowing exactly how shit is in the Chi (right or wrong) people take that gang life extremely serious this nigga rolled up to they hood and started tweeting that he is out here talking about he on #069 as if he was being arrogant about the fact he was in their hood and nothing happened to him. he even gave out his number in his tweets later on they rolled up on him. Lil jojo kept talking about how he never lacking this and that and he was shot on a bike with no gun on him in the neighborhood that he knows is territory to the gang he dissed, he quickly found out that they was not playing." Truth hurts, doesn't it???

      This reads like a copycat of 50 Cent/Rick Ross Feud. Ross comes to NYC and gets on the train, makes a music video, is shown driving on the expressway. All for ATTENTION.

    He needs to be locked up or pay out a huge fine to the mom cause he sucks. Keef is wack don't support his trashy music. Don't buy the new cd it's just the same shit you got on your mixtapes. No lyrics, no substance, nothing of value, not even hip hop (kids bop music) Garbage. Don't support ignorance, his music just makes blacks look dumb.

    This makes me think of all the fingers being pointed, and people being judged within this one storyline. Do your research, JoJo is from Altgeld Gardens, a tough place to say the least. While everyone needs 2 take personal responsibility, I think that the biggest factor here is poverty and how all these gangs have been formed from pain and desperation. There is a ton of terrible things going on that stem from the awful conditions people in this country are left in to die and the city, and nation as a whole don't seem to understand that not everyone actually has an equal opportunity in this country, for some people violence is a learned behavior from childhood. Put that same kid in Lincoln Park, or River North to grow up and I bet you he doesn't ever touch a gun. Blame to go around, but so should sensitivity for everyone involved who is just sick of waking up with a system working against them.
