Violence Erupts At Rapper Lil Jojo’s Funeral

According to NBC Chicago, the funeral for slain Chicago rapper Lil Jojo, legally known as Joseph Coleman, was filled with gang related individuals, among his family and friends.

Police actually had to clear out the funeral home in order to prevent any further confrontations from taking place. Outside, many unmarked police cars and even a police helicopter circled the area to make sure that no further violence took place.

Many of the mourners could be seen outside of the funeral home throwing up gang signs and exchanging gang related handshakes. The mourners even blasted Lil Jojo’s music in the cars in the parking lot and danced to his rhymes.
