(AllHipHop News) In this age’s hip-hop beef, artists have had no filter clapping back in the form of diss songs and social media posts.

Now, the feud between Chief Keef and 6ix9ine takes a left turn. Early Saturday morning (June 3), sources say a gunman aimed fire at Chief Keef, but the bullet missed and hit the side of the hotel instead.

Hours after the incident, Chief Keef fled back to his residence in Los Angeles. He told The Post,“Yeah, I’m good. It’s just beef between me and the rapper 6ix9ine.”

In addition, he recalled being confronted by two men in the early hours of Saturday morning, as he was heading upstairs to his room at the W Hotel on Broadway where he was staying.

“I was just scared a little bit and I didn’t know what to do,” he detailed. “I went upstairs for a couple hours to cool off and I came back [outside]. I didn’t know they were waiting for me.”

He said both men were armed but only one fired shot. The beef between Keef and 6ix9ine originally started when Keef was featured on a Trippie Redd song titled “I Kill People,” which threatened 6ix9ine.

The “Gummo” rapper then retaliated on social media questioning Keef’s street credit.

6ix9ine, who was in Los Angeles at the time of the shooting, has denied any involvement but he continued to taunt Chief Keef on social media.
