Chief Keef Tells Twitter Followers to Vandalize Minneapolis Home, Police Respond
When will rappers learn? Be careful what you tweet. Now Chief Keef is the latest example of a rapper sending something out on social media that they regret.
On Friday (Jan. 29), Sosa sent out a strange tweet directing fans to an address in North Minneapolis. Along with the address, he wrote, "Throw eggs and shit in a bag and rocks and all that at this address Ima repost it." The tweet has since been deleted.
It turns out the home at that address is being occupied by three college students who have stayed there for over a year. They tell Minneapolis' Eyewitness 5 News they have no connection to the rapper.
That didn't stop Chief Keef's Twitter followers, who were in the area, from riding by the house in large numbers and taking pictures and posting them to social media. So much so that the residents had to call the police. "I'm fearing for my safety," said Ashley, one of the women living in the home. "I have two other roommates that aren't able to come home tonight because of this, and it's not going to end tonight. Social media goes on forever. You could re-tweet this in four months and throw eggs at my house."
Meanwhile, a fan who pulled up on the scene notified Chief Keef of the action on Twitter and the "I Don't Like" rhymer responded, "They might Have the Police looking for me."
Police guarded the house against attacks and advised the residents to relocate for the night. There was no reported damage to the home. But the inconvenience and prospect of something happening in the future have those who live there pissed.
"You have a lot of say in what goes on in the world, being so famous, that this is just kind of sickening in what you do with your time, and if you're going to put a hit on a house, you make sure that they live there," Ashley said.
Chief Keef hasn't revealed the reason why he sent out the initial tweet.
