King Louie Claps Back at Spike Lee for Mocking His Shooting

Just when you thought the Chi-Raq movie saga was over, Spike Lee threw more gasoline on the almost dead fire. Spike’s Chi-Raq film was absolutely one of the biggest talking points of Chicago’s hip-hop scene in 2015, but after its December release, not much was said about Spike or the film. That is until last Wednesday night, when Spike hosted a screening and Q&A for Chi-Raq at Northwestern University.

During his Q&A discussion, the filmmaker called Chance The Rapper a “fraud,” and even joked about King Louie getting shot after releasing his scathing “Fuck Spike Lee” video late last year (read the full rundown here.) Of Louie’s shooting, Spike told the crowd “I didn’t do it!”

Yikes. Louie, obviously wasn’t amused at Spike’s mocking of his near-death experience, where Louie survived a head-shot in late-December. King Louie recently took to Twitter to air out Spike, and tossed out a few accusations of his own. You can read a rundown of his rant below.

As far as Chi-Raq and Spike go, I don’t think they’ll stop pissing off the people of Chicago anytime soon.

Has King Louie Joined T.I.’s Bankroll Mafia?

CZBXIZ_UoAAxrw1

It’s no secret that King Louie is one of Chicago’s hottest tickets. Over the past few years he’s been courted or handpicked to work with the likes of Kanye West and Drake, and now it appears he has a new relationship forming with the King of the South, T.I.

The two have been working together in ATL over the past few months, but it appears the connection might be bigger than we suspect, as Lou just added #BankrollMafia to his Instagram profile. As you may or may not know, Bankroll Mafia consists of T.I., Young Thug, Pee Wee Rosecoe, Shad Da God and others. In fact, King Louie and Tip connected a few weeks back on 5Mics “How Many Times (Remix),” which you can listen to here. 

Where does Louie fall into this? We’re not sure, but expect some announcements in the very near future. This is exciting.
