Bobby Shmurda, the rapper, hasn’t died, but there’s a rumor going around on Twitter saying “RIP.”
“RIP Bobby Shmurda (1994-2014),” a number of people were tweeting on Wednesday.
A likely fake photo of what appears to be Bobby’s Instagram appeared to insult rappers affiliated with Chief Keef, including Fredo Santana, Lil Reese, and others.
A number of users said the Instagram screenshots that purportedly are from Shmurda insulting Keef and the other rappers are fake. The pictures and messages that were being shared weren’t on his Instagram page, meaning that someone probably faked them.
A few months ago, there were rumors that Chief Keef went after Bobby on his “Beetlejuice” track. This came after rapper 50 Cent compared the two, saying: “It’s the same energy,” he said of “Hot N—a” against Keef’s “I Don’t Like” track. “It’s a New York version of it,” he added.
Later, Keef denied dissing the New York-based rapper: “Its not to him it’s to everybody who he got thinking that!” he wrote on Twitter.
