An 18-year-old rapper named JayLoud was shot and killed on Christmas Eve.
Following the death of 18-year-old rapper Joshua "JayLoud" Davis, his family claims that the shooting was caused by him wearing a Lil Jojo hoodie.
According to NBC Chicago, Davis was shot to death in Chi-town on Christmas Eve several blocks from his home following an altercation with a group of men on a CTA bus at around 11:30 p.m. The crew followed Davis off of the bus and one of the men pulled out a gun and shot him several tims in the torso and once in the ear.
His sister told DNAinfo.com that he was murdered for "wearing a hoodie" that honors slain rapper Lil Jojo, who had a rivalry with Chief Keef. Keef allegedly took to Twitter to laugh at Jojo's death but later said his account was hacked.
While the family thinks that the shooting was related to the hoodie, a Chicago Police Department spokesman said that the police report didn't name a piece of clothing. Detectives are still investigating the case and no suspects are in custody.
