Chief Keef Forms ‘Stop The Violence Now’ Foundation



Chief Keef is making an attempt to curb violence in his hometown of Chicago with the “Stop The Violence Now” foundation, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Sosa discussed plans of his new foundation after announcing he was going to perform in a hologram benefit concert for baby Dillan Harris who was killed in a car crash Saturday, July 11.

Sosa will reportedly appear at the Chicago concert via hologram from soundstage in Beverly Hills, CA. The concert will be free, but concertgoers will be encouraged to make donations, which will benefit the family of baby Dillan Harris, who was in his stroller when gunmen in a vehicle swerved around a corner and barreled into him.

According to Sosa’s FilmOn Networks management, the Glo Gang frontman isn’t able to appear in Chicago in person due to due to “outstanding warrants his legal team.”

A day before Capo’s passing, Sosa sat down with AllHipHop to describe his efforts in curbing gun violence in his city that’s commonly referred to as Chiraq.

“I’m with the ‘Stop The Violence’ campaign. That’s why I paintball now, so everybody can go pick up some paintball guns and go to the field, do a team on team …I think it’s a big deal to do that,” he said. “But it’s crazy back home. I’m glad to be someone that people look up to and listen to. I’m glad that I can be able to change the situation and the scenery that’s going around in Chicago. I’m love my city still, but we is crazy.

Sosa’s efforts to stop violence in Chicago received much publicity last year after he planned to perform in a “Put The Guns Down” concert. But the concert that was scheduled to occur in Cicero, IL was cancelled by police citing concerns of violence, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Cicero Police Supt. Bernard Harrison told the Tribune his department feared Sosa’s presence would spark “chaos” and “violence.”
