Chicago prosecutors are hoping to place Chief Keef in jail for violating his probation, the Chicago Sun Times reports.
The rapper, born Keith Cozart, has been under intense scrutiny by Chicago prosecutors for two alleged violations on his probation. The Interscope Recording artist 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.
The “I Don’t Like” artist 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.”
