Chief Keef Plans To Buy OBlock, Prince Dre and Fans React



Chief Keef recently announced his latest business venture. Sosa revealed he is interested in purchasing the country’s most famous housing project Parkway Gardens, known to fans as O’Block. The low-income housing complex is located on 64th street and King drive in the Englewood neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side. It was named in honor of 20-year-old Odee Perry who was murdered Aug. 11, 2011 after he suffered multiple gunshot wounds, including one to the neck near the housing project.

“I’m going to buy Oblock watch! 4nem gone have to move around,” he wrote.



Sosa’s announcement drew a response from many around social media, including fellow O’Block native Prince Dre. The “Blood Brothaz” rapper may be in support of Sosa’s ambitions.

“Sounds Good,” he replied.





O’Block was once home to First Lady Michelle Obama.

Mrs. Obama opened on up on her past upbringing during an interview with Time Magazine.

Her grandparents, she said, “lived in this housing development called Parkway Gardens.”

“I was actually born there,” she continued. “But I saw it as a wonderful, small apartment building. That’s how I remember it. But now when I pass it, it’s — I was like, God, I never saw that apartment in the way that I’m seeing it now.”

The First Lady later moved with her parents to Euclid Avenue around the age of 2.



O Block is reportedly the most dangerous block in Chicago, according to the Chicago Sun Times. The Sun Times cites the 19 victims of gun violence that occurred in Parkway Gardens between June 2011 and June 2014.

The article drew a response from OBlock native BossTop via IG.

He posted a screenshot of the story titled “Chicago’s Most Dangerous Block.”



“#IQuitThisShitNotAGame #SomebodySnitching,” he wrote in the caption of a post.



Sosa makes an appearance in BossTop’s “30 Choppaz” music video, which is set on O’Block.





ZackTV filmed a short doc on the housing project titled “Live From OBlock.”
