They say you are whom you associate with. 50 Cent believes Chief Keef is placing his career in jeopardy before it will ever begin.
“@ChiefKeef is my boy I’m a get everything back in place for him. They were gonna just throw him out,” he wrote on Twitter.
“I told them at intrescope its not him he just has the wrong people around him.”
Chief Keef has been known to show no regard for authority. The “I Don’t Like” rapper raised eyebrows after missing an important video shoot featuring two of the biggest names in the Hip Hop industry- Wiz Khalifa and 50 Cent.
The video shoot was for his latest single “Hate Being Sober.”
50 Cent didn’t let the newly signed Interscope artist Chief Keef off the hook for missing his video shoot and gave the young gun some tough love. The G-Unit front man took to Twitter to express his dissatisfaction.
“Its not funny @ChiefKeef didn’t sell any records yet,they will pull the plug on him.SMSAUDIO,” 50 Cent wrote.
50 Cent warned the Chicago emcee his arrogance could possible get him dropped from the label.
Not only is Chief Keef, whose real name is Keith Cozart, feeling the heat from his record the label, he has also been under intense scrutiny by Chicago prosecutors.
Chicago prosecutors are hoping to place Chief Keef in jail for violating his probation, the Chicago Sun Times reports.
Chief Keef failed to earn his GED by an August deadline and was found holding a rifle in an online video.
The rapper was found associating with Black Disciple gang members after police responded to a call of gang disturbance in the 6300 block of South King Drive, according to the Sun Times
Chief Keef’s probation prohibits him from having any guns or illegal drugs or associating with gang members.
He also failed to provide his probation officer his phone number and was unreachable for about two weeks, the Sun Times reports.
Chief Keef is reportedly serving 18 months of probation for pointing a gun at a Chicago police officer.
“He is still blowing off this court. He is still doing what he wants to do,” Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney Julian Brevard said, according to the Sun Times.
His “whole image is that he is a tough guy,” he added
Chief Keef posted defiant messages to his Twitter account, according to the Sun Times.
“Prosecutors want me back in jail?! I aint going!!!! … IM out here tryin to get this money & they wanna stop me from shining!!!” he wrote.
Judge Carl Anthony Walker ruled he wouldn’t lock up the 17-year-old rapper before a Nov. 20 hearing. Though he acknowledge Chief Keef should be placed on “electronic home monitoring.”
Chief Keef reportedly left court pumping his fists in a display of victory. According to the Sun Times, he told a reporter before his court proceeding that it would be “a piece of cake.”
Is Chief Keef’s Glory Boyz Entertainment crew and association to the Black Disciples street gang stopping his progression? Should he cut ties with his crew and focus solely on his music?
50 Cent, who is worth over $100 million, was in the same predicament as Chief Keef. Heavily in streets, 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, had to cut ties with his street past in order to become one of the most influential names in Hip Hop and the business sector.
