Rucuss staffSeptember 6, 2012

Lupe Fiasco reached his breaking point during a Twitter beef with rapper Chief Keef on Wednesday.

Lupe told his fans on Twitter that he’s ready to call it quits on his rap career. The rapper has taken plenty of heat for his political views and controversial lyrics but it was his fellow Chicago rapper that sealed the deal for him.

The beef between Lupe and the 17-year old rapper who has the single I Don’t Like, began last week when Fiasco did an interview with Baltimore 92Q. When Lupe was asked for his opinion on Chief Keef, he responded, “Chief Keef  scares me. Not him specifically, but just the culture that he  represents–specifically in Chicago…. The hoodlums, the gangsters, and the ones  you see killing each other and the murder rate in Chicago is skyrocketing and  you see who’s doing it and perpetrating it — they all look like Chief  Keef. When it comes to the point that, you know, that kids who are doing the killings, and they’re kids 13 to 19 years old, and you can replicate that in New Orleans, you can replicate that in Oakland. All the kids look the same.”

A few days after the interview, Keef tweeted, “Lupe fiasco a hoe ass n—a And wen I see him I’ma smack him like da lil bitch he is #300.”

Lupe responded to Chief Keef’s threat with a long message. He tweeted:

“i love u lil bruh @ChiefKeef…i really really do from the bottom of my  f-cking heart. I know that street sh-t like the back of my hand. I’ ve seen it in every way you can possibly imagine and its  nothing to be proud of @ChiefKeef it TAKES and TAKES till there is nothing left.  I choose not to indulge becuz its lil guys that look up to me so i try and show  them a better way @ChiefKeef i aint try to be BE better. I’m trying to DO better  @ChiefKeef as we all should. We were born with no expectations to make it. born  in the hood, live there die there. I cant go 4 that @ChiefKeef & i cant let  the people i love, including you my n-gga, go 4 that either. We kings not  f-cking savages and goons”

“My father I have spoken the truth to them yet it has only made my life in this world more troubled. i can bear this no  longer… I have spoken peace only 2 receive vitriol and malice in return. My  brother seeks destruction my sister seeks attention paths to nothingness. I’d  die for them…but they’d probably spit on my grave…i still will die for them…just  bury me in a place far from their reach…Amin.

This album will probably be my last.  It’s been a pleasure to have all my fans provide so much love an inspiration for  me and my family, but my heart is broken and I see no comfort further along this  path–only more pain. I cannot participate any longer in this…My first true love  was literature so i will return to that…lupe fiasco ends here…peace and much  love 2 ya!….”

Keef is known to glorify the gang bang lifestyle, which has consumed Chicago. The city has an alarming and increasing murder rate. The number 300 he uses is a reference to the Chicago Street gang, the Black Disciples.

Police began monitoring Chief Keef’s account earlier this week after 16-year old rapper Lil Jojo was killed in Chicago. Before his untimely death he had an alleged beef with the Black Disciples. Chief Keef even tweeted about the rapper after he was shot to death. He tweeted,”‘Its Sad Cuz Dat Ni–a Jojo Wanted To Be Jus Like Us #LMAO.”

This beef between the two Chicago rappers comes just weeks after Lupe broked down in tears while watching 2006 footage of himself in his old neighborhood. He explained he saw ‘ghosts’ in the video, which were friends who had died or had been incarcerated.
