In the latest development of rapper drama, we have Chief Keef vs. Tekashi 6ix9ine, Chicago vs. New York. For the last couple of weeks, the two have been taking shots back and forth and playing an epic game of cross-country hide and seek… but if you’re not following, here’s how it started.
Allegedly, the feud began when Chief Keef appeared on a song with 6ix9ine rival Trippie Redd called “I Kill People”, which was aimed at the rainbow-haired newcomer. 6ix9ine would respond in a now deleted post, giving Keef and other rappers 48 hours to kill him. From there, things got real.
On Saturday (June 2), reports of a shooting occurred outside of a New York City hotel. It was quickly revealed that Chief Keef was the target, and many suspected 6ix9ine was somehow involved. No injuries or arrests occurred, but the drama continued.
Before fingers could even be pointed 6ix9ine’s way, he revealed via social media that he was in Los Angeles. By sunrise, Keef was also in L.A. We hoped they would squash the beef (peacefully) at that point in time, but we were wrong.
The beef continued on social media, and it’s honestly getting kind of old. Just this week, on Tuesday (June 12), 6ix9ine showed up in Chicago, posting videos of himself himself on Instagram giving back to the less fortunate in Keef’s hometown of Chicago… and then on Keef’s neighborhood.
He continued the trolling on Wedneday (June 13), when he returned to New York City and posted video of himself with Keef’s baby mama. The two call out Keef for being a dead beat dad, before 6ix9ine dropped $75,000 on some designer clothing for her.
Keef has thrown a few shots in reponse, but nothing major. “Get the security, not the strap,” he posted to Instagram.
It seems as if 6ix9ine is running from Keef at this point and only posting to social media for clout, but who are we to judge? Maybe they can learn a thing or two from the beef master, Drake, and channel their anger through music, not social media.
