Young M.A Catches Heat for Mentioning Slain Chicago Teen Tooka in Freestyle
Young M.A has some people in Chicago pissed over some bars she spit during a recent freestyle on Philadelphia radio station Power 99.
The "OOOUUU" MC was recently a guest on Cosmic Kev's Come Up show, where she spit bars over a few beats including N.O.R.E.'s "Banned From TV." One line caught the attention of people. And not in a good way. In the bars in question, she raps, "I smoke hookah like it's Tooka blowing jet clouds/And I only get high to bring the stress down."
The Tooka many people believe she is referring to is Shondale "Tooka" Gregory, a Chicago teen who was shot and killed while standing at a bus stop in the Windy City a few years back.
For some backstory, Tooka is known in the rap world because he and his clique Tooka Gang were infamously dissed by Chief Keef on the songs “3Hunna” and “John Madden.” The tracks caused an issue between Keef and fellow Chi-Town rapper CashOut who was cool with Gregory.
Fast-forward to today and Tooka's associates still don't allow any direspect to be put on his name, and have come forward with some serious threats against the Brooklyn rapper for mentioning their fallen homie. Chicago rapper King Yella already had to talk to Fetty Wap for mentioning a "Tooka blunt" in a song over a year ago, and now he's responded to Young M.A's mention, offering up money for any "dyke" that is willing to run M.A's fade.
"Ima pay a dike bitch too whoop @hennynhoes since the lil boy girl wanna smoke hooka like it's tooka," he captioned a video of himself holding a stack of cash and putting the word out.
Another Chicago rapper FBG Duck offered similar thoughts on Twitter, saying, "I Ain't Tryna Beef Wit No Female But Somebody Better Tell Her Watch Her Fucking Mouth And Kno Wat She Saying Before My Dike Cousin Beat Her."
M.A has yet to respond on social media.
