Chicago’s GBE rap clique continues to face controversy. While Chief Keef’s future may be uncertain after a probation violation, his partner in rhyme Lil Reese is now under fire after a video was released online of the “Us” rapper beating up a young woman.
If there was any doubt that it was Reese in the video, the Def Jam signee confirmed it on Twitter early Thursday morning (October 25), blaming unnamed haters for releasing an old clip in an attempt to discredit him. “The haters tryna see a mf Dwn lol Dey gotta b broke and bored wanna upload sum sh– from years ago damnn we winnin it’s 2 late…#3hunna,” he wrote. “Dis wat doin betta den da next mf bring small s— it’s nothin time 2 turn Uppp f— it…#3hunna.”
The grainy camera phone video starts off with the rising rap rookie arguing with the young woman in what appears to be her home. “Who the f— let them in here though?” she says of Reese and his friends.
After some argument, she warns the rapper to keep his hands to himself and tells him, “They didn’t stop making guns when they made yours.”
From there, the drama turned physical as the two exchanged pushes and shoves before Reese backed the female into the wall and began punching her furiously. When the young lady dropped to the floor, the rapper still kicked and punched her for several seconds while she and her friends screamed in the background.
Earlier this month Reese released his Don’t Like mixtape with DJ Drama and Don Canon. The tape features his latest single “Us,” which was remixed by Rick Ross and Drake on Rozay’s The Black Bar Mitzvah mixtape.
