The year has already started off pretty bad for those living in Chicago.
The death toll has already reached double digits in less than a week. Most recently it was the step brother of up and coming rapper Chief Keef that was shot and killed.
Here is what DNA Info reported….
|Rapper Chief Keef’s stepbrother, an aspiring rapper from the suburbs, took a fatal bullet to the back of the head.
Ulysses “Chris” Gissendanner III, a 19-year old graduate of Oak Park-River Forest High, became at least the fourth aspiring teen rapper to get shot and killed in Chicago since September.
Gissendanner modeled his hip-hop alter ego, “YPN Boomtown,” after Chief Keef, the Englewood teen rap sensation he was related to by marriage.
Gissendanner’s stepfather, Alfonso Cozart, says he is the father of Chief Keef, whose real name is Keith Cozart.
