Chief Keef is proactive about ending violence in his hometown of Chicago. Sosa sat down with AllHipHop Friday, July 10 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 interview comes just a day before the tragic murder of Glo Gang brother Capo. Cap was shot and killed Saturday, July 11 during a possible drive-by shooting. Shocking footage surfaced on the net showing the “G.L.O.N.L. 2” rapper taking his last breaths before being taken to Northwestern Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
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.”
“We have indications from intelligence sources that there were going to be problems and there have been many problems at his concerts in other places,” Harrison told Tribune. “I spoke to the director of the theater myself and asked if he could cancel the concert. He complied with my request.
“It is our belief that the concert has been cancelled,” he continued. “Still, for the night we are preparing extra security. We have to err on the side of caution. We are providing extra officers to work the streets and be in the area of the theater.”
Chaos and violence was not the intent of Chief Keef and his GBE camp with the concert. Sosa, along with Power Move and SMG, aimed to promote peace in the Chi through their endeavor.
Sosa announced the concert via IG with the flier art. The caption on his post read, “CHICAGO! Get ready for #POWERFEST! #PUTTHEGUNSDOWN CONCERT SAY JUNE 14th #OLYMPICTHEATRE text CHIEFKEEF to 88202 for TIX/VIP! S/O @WHOIZJOHNDOE @DJMOONDAWG @WGCI LETS HAVE A SAFE SUMMER.”
He also posted a mini vlog saying he and his GBE squad would be in attendance.
This would have been Chief Keef’s first concert in his hometown since revealing to a fan the Chicago Police Department banned him from performing.
