On May 15, the Brooklyn Federal rapper-informant commented on several blog posts on social media about the shooting, which took place on Saturday morning in Chicago and allegedly involved a stolen vehicle.
“Lil Tim is wild in here,” Tekashi typed in the comments section on a post, referring to Quando Rondo’s associate who is accused of killing Chi-Town rapper King Von.
6ix9ine doubled down on the trolling in another article on the shooting. “How? ‘Or’ What [Reese] get shot before quando 😩😩, ”Tekashi posted.
He made a third commentary on Chicago rapper Lil Durk. “Buy your man a car, you made him look crazy in that video,” Tekashi added, referring to a graphic video that circulated the internet that shows Reese bleeding on the sidewalk.
6ix9ine didn’t stop there. He took the taunts on his own, claiming there was a 6ix9ine curse. He also posted a screenshot of a GoFundMe fundraising page for “Help Reese Buy a Car”.
“What happened today is no fun, let everyone join in and help them buy their own car,” 6ix9ine wrote.
Tekashi later posted a screenshot of an IG Live exchange he had with Reese earlier this year, where Reese appeared to flash a gun. “You wanna tell me you got it on Instagram but not in real life[?]6ix9ine asked.
6ix9ine and Reese have a beef story that came to light last August when Reese warned 6ix9ine to gamble on the internet and Tekashi responded with posting an old video of Reese getting blown up. Reese retaliated by call 6ix9ine’s girlfriend. They later had the aforementioned argument on Instagram.
Reese was reportedly shot dead along with two other men during an exchange of gunfire in a parking lot at 6 West Grand Avenue in Chicago. Police were called to the scene and discovered the three men with gunshot wounds and a crashed Dodge Durango riddled with bullet holes.
Two of the victims were taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital where one man has been listed in acceptable condition and the other man is believed to be in critical condition, according to the Chicago Police Department, which did not identify the victims. The other victim was taken to Stroger Hospital where he is listed in good condition.
