Chief Keef Sentenced: 17-Year-Old Rapper to Serve 2 Months Over Pitchfork Gun Video, Parole Violation


A member of Chief Keef‘s management team has revealed that the controversial 17-year-old rapper has been sentenced to two months at the Illinois Youth Center in St. Charles, Ill., for violating probation.

“We would have preferred for him not to have to sit down for a single day,” explained Idris “Peeda Pan” Abdul Wahid, of today’s verdict. “Overall, I think it’s the best decision to satisfy everybody. The City of Chicago got what they want … We done been to hell and back already, so shit ain’t nothing.”

Reports from the courtroom, however, paint a vastly different picture of the “nihilistic” young MC. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the scene in the courtroom was quite emotional, with Keef “breaking down into tears several times.”

Keef, born Keith Cozart, was convicted on Tuesday (Jan. 15), after he was filmed brandishing a rifle during an ill-conceived interview with Pitchfork on July 2, 2012, a direct violation of the terms of his probation.

Keef began serving his time immediately after sentencing this afternoon.
