It looks like Chief Keef's past run-ins with the law have finally caught up with him in full. He was on 18 months of probation for pointing a gun at a police officer who was chasing after him back in December 2011, but violated the terms of his probation when he appeared in a PitchFork.com video that shows him firing off rifles at a gun range during an interview. Today, Thursday, January 17th, Keef has been sentenced to 60 days behind bars by Juvenile Court Judge Carl Anthony Walker.
According to DNAinfo.com, Chief Keef, legally known as Keith Cozart, pleaded with the judge to give him one more chance during his sentencing.
"I beg you please...Give me one more chance to show you. I am a very good hearted person. I have not picked up any more cases... That's not my life anymore."
The report then claims that Keef "broke down in sobs" after the judge sentenced him to two months behind bars, to which he then turned and kissed his mother and grandmother before he went with police officers to begin serving his time.
Chief Keef's song "Love Sosa", off of his "Finally Rich" album, were used to demonstrate how he is still affiliated with drugs, guns, and gang activity, as Judge Walker claimed that he has shown a "clear disregard for the court's authority," in his everyday activity as well as his PitchFork gun range video. Keef tried to defend himself by saying that the lyrics he spits in his songs are all just "bull stuff." Another problem demonstrated in the video is that Keef is actually a good shot, for he struck the paper target shaped like a man's body in the chest multiple times.
While in court, Cook County Assistant State's Attorney Jullian Brevard demonstrated to the judge two prior times where Keef had violated the terms of his probation as examples that "he's still not learning."
It looks like Keef's fans will have to wait a few months to hear any new material from the young rapper. Hopefully he won't have any further legal struggles once he is freed.
