Tensions erupt at wake
for slain teen rapper Lil JoJo
By Mark Konkol
Sepember 15, 2012
Family, friends and gang members on Friday bid farewell to slain teen rapper Joseph "Lil JoJo" Coleman in a gangster rap funeral that was tainted by tension and fear, and ended with cops confiscating a loaded .45-caliber pistol.
While some mourners prayed in the Jones Funeral Home parlor - others smoked weed in the parking lot.
As family members paid their final respects, a crowd of young men eager to take a last look at Lil JoJo's body surged toward his casket, nearly knocked it to the floor and pushed family members out of the way.
The music stopped.
Lil JoJo's mother, Robin Russell, screamed into the microphone, "Get the f--- out."
Minutes later, Chicago police cleared the funeral home at 79th and Kedzie in the Ashburn neighborhood.
Outside, police helicopters hovered overhead as several unmarked squad cars patrolled the streets.
Young men and women - some wearing "RIP JoJo" t-shirts and others flashing gang signs and exchanging gang handshakes - danced and sang along with Lil JoJo's first song, "3HunnaK."

Lil JoJo Dead: Teen Chicago Rapper Joseph Coleman Fatally Shot, Police Investigate Chief Keef's Tweets
(Concious People Must Protect and Support Lupe Fiasco)
Chicago police are looking at up-and-coming rapper Chief Keef's tweets after a rival rapper was gunned down in the city's Englewood neighborhood.
After an aspiring teenage rapper was fatally shot in Chicago's Englewood neighborhood Tuesday, police are investigating whether the boy's rivalry with another area rapper was to blame for the slaying.
Joseph "Lil JoJo" Coleman
Joseph Coleman, better known by his stage name "Lil JoJo," was shot in the back when a car pulled up while he was riding a bicycle in the 6900 block of South Princeton Avenue on the city's South Side around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Chief Keef, who signed to Interscope Records this summer, previously was sentenced to house arrest after he was arrested and charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon last December.
Keef also targeted Lupe Fiasco in recent weeks after the fellow Chicago rapper said in an interview that the violence of Keef's and other young artists' lyrics was disheartening, according to NBC.
Lupe Fiasco
The area where Coleman was gunned down is located about a block from where the family of Oscar-winning actress and singer Jennifer Hudson was murdered in 2008. It is also located in one of the two districts that Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy this week held up as an example of where the city's gang-fighting, anti-violence initiatives are proving effective.
