Chief Keef to Perform as Hologram to Raise Money for Toddler Killed in Chicago
Chief Keef wants to make a difference in his community. Following the death of friend and fellow Glo Gang member Capo and 1-year-old Dillan Harris last week, the rapper will hold a benefit concert for the family of the baby to memorialize his life.
The "Ain't Missing You" rhymer's commendable deed will be an interesting one considering he won't be performing live in Chicago. Keef will appear via hologram from a sound stage in Beverly Hills, Calif., according to his Instagram. While the concert will be free, donations are encouraged. The money raised will go to Harris family. The child was killed when a car fleeing the scene of Capo's shooting struck the toddler's stroller in Chicago.
A spokesperson for Chief Keef told The Chicago Tribune that the rapper "is just so heartbroken and appalled by the deaths" that have taken place recently. Despite living in the Los Angeles area, Keef thought it was imperative to do something considering he's such an integral figure in the city of Chicago.
Due to his legal woes, the "Kobe" rhymer won't be able to attend the concert in person, hence why he elected to perform via hologram. In addition to performing, Keef announced his Stop the Violence Now Foundation, which is geared toward reducing neighborhood crime.
Chicago needs a break. Thankfully, Chief Keef is doing his part to try to restore optimism in his city. Look out for his benefit performance Friday (July 17).
