Family Of Slain Teen Rapper Says He Was Shot For Wearing Lil Jojo Hoodie

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 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.

    Rifuckindiculous... To somewhat explain this madness, hoodies like "JoJo World" is in memory of a fallen gang member, Jo Jo was Insane Gangster Disciple, their main enemy is Black Disciples, that rivalry goes waay back further than Lil Reese and Jo Jo (He was not Lil Jojo..just Jo Jo, or BrickSquad JoJo) guess is ran into some guys who rival that..

    Look this kids picture.. look at his shoulder width .. hes got a small frame.. I don't understand the kind of weak ass boys that would need a gun to deal with this kid.. even if he was a 6'6 nigga I would fight him with my hands like a man.. all these kids now are weak-ass bitches. weak minded weak spirited and their taste in everything is lame...
    • yup
      You're right. Instead of just being degenerates and fighting him with their hands, they are weak for using technology. You are an idiot.

      And the award for Most Asinine & Backwards Ass Comment Of the Year goes to...^^^ Do you even know what degenerate means? The degenerate's the one who feels he has the authority to decide who lives and who dies, and comes to those conclusions based on petty ass street bullshit that holds NO real significance in the world. It takes a real special type of pussy ass nigga to try and justify a kid losin his life for nothin.
    • Fuckhead
      They're weak for using technology? Yes they fuckin are! How you gonna say you're stronger by standin far back and shootin like a lil bitch! The man is the one who stands and faces it! Pussy asss motherfucker

    It was probably less the hoodie and more the attitude/posing with guns for his rap career and throwing up gang signs that got him into trouble.

    I don't think it was related to Jojo. The report says there was an altercation. Jay basically fucked with some real niggas and had to pay the price.
  • Badmofo
    What a dick move!!! Everybody knows you can't kill on Xmas eve. You shot them in the leg & give them a bad lip not in the chest. Its just bad gangsta etiquette.
  • d-nucks
    You will burn brain cells trying to make sense of this niggaz these days...kill for nothing...we are witnessing people that have very litte value of life.
  • Indelible72
    I don't think it was necessarily the hoodie, report said there was an altercation. Way too many altercations end up in shootings though.

    Later on Xmas Eve Chief Keef laughed about it as he waited for Santa to bring the arrest warrant.

    People still mad over JoJo ? no way you gotta be kidding me

    The perpetrator in this senseless crime has yet to be apprehended, so the assailant's ethnicity and gender is still to be determined. Automatically assuming the killer's a Black male is being presumption. RIP to dude regardless.
    • Esq.
      No lie, I feel what you're on this side of the city, and judging from the fact that it all started on a CTA bus? It's MORE than likely that they are black. It's fucked up and sad as hell, but being in the wrong place at the wrong time is enough to get you shot out here right now.

      Seeing a murder happen in the rural farm lands of England and assuming it was black people would be out of line. Seeing a murder happen in a gang heavy area of Chicago with mostly black people is just stating the odds.

    Damn joe...shit's fucked up. Smdh.

    Its sad how we stay killing each other over nothing. these kds don't realize that once you are gone there is no coming back. really sad and pathetic.

    These fucking gangs are fucking retards. anyone in a gang can fall of a cliff and die for all I care. Fucking idiots couldn't prove themselves at life so they joined a dumb ass gang.
