It looks like Chief Keef’s aspirations of running for mayor of Chicago are no more. No, Sosa didn’t drop his campaign. He just doesn’t qualify.
Billboard reports Sosa’s felon status eliminates him from running. Sosa was placed on an 18-month probation for pointing a loaded handgun at a Chicago police officer in 2011.
Police responded to a call of shots fired on Dec. 2, 2011 just before noon on the 6100 block of South Indiana, according to DNAinfo.com.
Police confronted Chief Keef as he was walking out of his grandmother’s apartment complex. Chief Keef, who was 16 years old at the time, brandished a loaded “blue-steel handgun” and eluded police for a half-block before being apprehended.
While in pursuit, police fired several shots at Cozart, but missed, according to a police report obtained by DNAinfo.com
Though the rapper, born Keith Cozart, didn’t fire his weapon, he did point his gun at officers- twice.
Cozart reportedly was charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a firearm on a police officer and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon- all felonies. He was sentenced to home confinement at his grandmother’s house- the same home where the viral “I Don’t Like” music video was shot.
Sosa announced his mayoral campaign ambitions following his online dispute with current mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel.
“I’m running for mayor of Chicago….. Vote for me!!!!! It’ll be the best thing done yet!!!!! Yall gonna love me in the Office,” he wrote on Twitter.
“I’m going to get all the ballots and everything,” he told Billboard. “Chief Keef for mayor! Vote for me! They’re going to love me when I get into office. I’m going to make everything right.”
Sosa was upset with Emanuel for cancelling his “Stop The Violence” hologram concert performance in Hammond, IN.
“I was really shocked,” Keef told Billboard. “[City officials] just be hating. They don’t want to see a young black man be successful and try to do something good. It’s crazy.” He has harsher, more-colorful words when asked for his opinion of Emanuel: “If you ask me, man, f— the mayor with a sandpaper dick! Say it like that.”
Sosa also lashed out against Rahm on Twitter.
“Call Mayor of Chicago @rahemanuel 312-744-5000 and tell him to stay the f*ck off the people’s music #StopTheViolenceNow
“I think I’m the Biggest Capper of all time!!!!!!!” he wrote.
GloHive heeded Sosa’s call and subsequently trolled the mayor for canceling the concert.
