Chief Keef is in jail, according to a message that surfaced on the Glo Gang frontman’s IG account.
“Free Sosa He’ll Be Home Soon!!!!” the message on his IG post read.
It hasn’t been revealed what Sosa was locked up for, but it must be noted that the Glo Gang leader was named a fugitive in the national instant background check system in October 2014 due to his continuous missed court hearings for his DUI case, according to the Chicago Sun Times. This allows authorities to arrest Sosa in any state and extradite him back to Illinois.
A $50,000 arrest warrant was issued for the 20-year-old “Bang 3” rapper in August 2014 after he missed a scheduled court appearance for his DUI case, WGNTV reports.
Keef pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor charges of driving under the influence of marijuana April 11, 2014.
Lake County Sheriff Mark Curren told the Sun Times such measures had to be taken due to Sosa’s “flagrant disregard for the justice system” despite his charge being only a misdemeanor.
Lake County police have made requests for Sosa’s attorney Leah Starkman to arrange his surrender, but she “reportedly has said he has no plans to return to Illinois in the immediate future due to threats he has received.”
Sosa has additionally had numerous run-ins with the CPD.
Chief Keef was arrested June 17, 2013 only minutes after leaving a court hearing for a speeding violation. Police nabbed Sosa on a month-old trespassing charge.
Police allegedly had machine guns drawn on the rapper upon his arrest.
A security guard from the Parkway Gardens housing complex, a stronghold for the Black Disciples, filed a complaint against Keef for being on the property, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Sosa explained to followers via Twitter why he doesn’t go back to visit his O’Block neighborhood.
Twitter user OBGeezy The General @OB_Geezy asked Sosa, “@ChiefKeef Y U Just Ride Pass The Block And Don’t Stop Cum Fem 4 My Bday.”
Keef replied, “Cuz on Odee bro The police said I cant Come outside and If dey see me dey Gone get me everytime No time fad at.”
“But on O Da Feds Watchin me Niggas A Kill U If I said I Gave Rappin Up,” he added.
The South Side Chicago rap star’s recent DUI legal woes began after was arrested in Highland Park, IL in the early morning of March 5, according to the Tribune.
Police reportedly stopped Sosa for driving his 2010 Jeep Cherokee with expired tags. Police smelled marijuana upon approaching the “Hate Being Sober” rapper’s vehicle.
Sosa reportedly failed a sobriety test and was later placed under arrest for DUI, driving on a suspended license and no proof of insurance.
He was reportedly released after posting $300 bail.
Sosa posted his DUI mugshot to IG with a caption, reading, “High as f*ck.” The caption included a “smiley face” emoticon.
Sosa’s arrest comes following a court-ordered 90 days in a California drug rehabilitation center.
In October 2013, a judge ordered Chief Keef to serve 20 days in jail for violating the terms of his probation after testing positive for marijuana, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Sosa was released a few days later for good behavior.
But Keef soon found himself back in jail Nov. 7, 2013 after failing yet another drug test. He was subsequently ordered to undergo 90 days of drug treatment.
Sosa’s legal woes stemmed from a June 2013 speeding ticket.
Northfield Police clocked Sosa driving 110 mph on the Edens Expressway. Keef’s arrest came following a performance in Davenport, Iowa.
Chief Keef plead guilty to the charge and was fined $531, placed on probation for 18 months, ordered to perform 60 hours of community service, undergo random drug testing and complete eight hours of traffic school.
Update: It turns out Chief Keef was pranking his fans. Sosa edited the caption on his post to read, “I lied….. love y’all!!”
