Chief Keef’s Step Brother Murdered; Chicago Teen Violence Continues


Chief Keef’s step brother Ulysses “Chris” Gissendanner III was fatally gunned down in South Chicago last Wednesday (January 2), according to DNAinfo.com Chicago.

Known by the rap moniker “YPN Boomtown,” the young rapper was related to Chief Keef by marriage after Chief Keef’s father, Afonso Cozart, married YPN Boomtown’s mother Aridecy Tate, and then divorced in 2012.

Alfonso Cozart, said he no longer has contact with his son Chief Keef, born Keith Cozart.

On Wednesday (January 2) Gissendanner was gunned down in a car near 124th and Union after visiting his uncle in West Pullman, after which he died at Roseland Hospital at 45 W. 111th S.

According to Chief Keef’s lawyer and grandmother, Chief Keef’s immediate family did not recognize Gissendanner or Alfonso Cozart as family members.

According to Keef’s Attorney Dennis Berkson, Chief Keef “wasn’t friendly” with Gissendanner and had “nothing to do with the kid,”Berkson explained. “And [Chief Keef] has no relationship with his father.”

      • king

        It’s this black on black crime which is out of control as I said before black people have this disgusting hate for each other ….

    • Anon eemus

      Just cus you’re in a pic with somebody doesn’t mean you have anything to do with em…A lot of rappers have pictures with ppl they dont even know the names of.

    Why when I think “Chief Keef, murder.” I get more entries than when I think “Chief Keef, songs?”

    • anyone can murder people & get some publicity…

      • It takes a certain type of person to kill someone, solely for publicity. So, I wouldn’t say “anyone” can commit a murder.

  • ?The Riddler?

    tsk… chief keef is nothin but… BAD NEWS!

  • Bumpy Johnson

    the violence has continued since the early 70s in most major cities..but i understand your trying to catch peoples ears.

  • Blood Sacrifice Jimmy was disappointed with those album sales.

    LIVE BY THE GUN, DIE BY THE GUN….. Chief STIFF, I mean KIEF, had his 15 minutes, NO REAL TALENT & certainly no ‘mogul’, or ‘future’ in his ‘so called talent’ or crew of knuckleheads – heading to prison or the morgue, BEFORE the top of the charts – that’s FOR SURE!

    Most people in chicago that have a drug problem, has to bee dropped while on probation. I cant see why the Cook County Court system hasnt done that with Chief Keef.
    It may help him to get off of drugs. He may be nicer while not being under the influence.

  • ladynamor

    Jimmy invested in the dead Chief Keef. Waiting on a Pac Big moment. Insurance and record sales out the roof due to our obsession with dead entertainers. (Just a thought)

    • This isn’t 1996… we have a ton of free music today. No one cares about a talent less clown.

      • ladynamor

        People will purchase music from a DEAD talentless clown though. History proves it.

      • What history? That 2pac, Michael Jackson & Biggie all sold well after they passed, two of them were in the 90’s..and one was a global pop icon… I don’t see Heavy D, Slim Dunkin or Nate Dogg records flying off the shelf just because they passed.

    • KingsCountyCrooklyn

      that’s a good idea have these ignorant MFs sign a $2,000,000 life insurance policy while they thinking its a recording contract. buy them a $80,000 sports car, $10,000 in jewelry and tell them they have to stay & record they next two albums in their hood. no need for fine print they don’t read the bold letters to begin with.

      • Great, racist… stereotypical comments… lol…

  • thuglifefukdapolice

    i wish i was a rapper i would whoop chief keef azz with a belt like im his pops its too many babies dying iin chicago wtf is they feeding and teaching these kids

    • Jeffrey Pulliam

      Its terribly sad

  • Pingback: RAPPER; CHIEF KEEF’S STEP BROTHER; GUNNED DOWN THIS PAST WEEKEND IN CHICAGO SOUTHSIDE!! « NewPrentiss.com()

  • So, a person chooses to be in a gang…. does dirt, then get’s killed…. and we should shed a tear over that? It’s a lifestyle choice. If somehow he wasn’t in one, then my apologies… but my assumption is probably spot on.

  • KingsCountyCrooklyn

    yeah and chief keef was more likely the trigger man and was aiming for the boys uncle who was across the street half a block away. oh well innocent or not these dudes die young as if theres no plan for tomorrow….

    I live down the street from Roseland Hospital and I wouldn’t even take a dog there to get care. That hospital sucks. I’m about to get into the funeral business here in Chicago. That’s where the money is right now. Sad.

    • If The Head Right

      So u assumed everything and summarized chicago as being an azzhole of America… because u assumed he killed his step bro even tho they didnt have any beef, they just didnt know each other at all besides legally being related by law….u are either young dumb and have mental problems or ur a dumb adult and have mental problems
