Chief Keef, a 17-year-old Interscope rap artist, can be regarded by some as young and reckless.
The embattled emcee’s career has been riddle with controversy ever since he stepped into the spotlight.
Master P, who recorded the “It Don’t Make No Sense” track with Keef, discussed the teenage rap star’s plight during an interview with Power 105’s “The Breakfast Club.”
Master P said he spent a “little time” with the Chicago artist in the studio.
“You gotta take your time,” the No Limit rapper said, referring to Keef’s growth. “You don’t know what a person searching for. You don’t know what hurt or pain a person been through… I’m praying for him. All the little ones that still need a little time. We aint giving up on em, we just praying for em.”

Chief Keef, whose birth name is Keith Cozart, sent shockwaves through the Hip Hop community following his response to the death of rival gang member and rapper Lil’ JoJo.
Lil’ JoJo, born Joseph Coleman, was murdered in a hail of gunfire in a drive-by shooting on Sept. 4, 2012 as he was riding on the back pegs of a friend’s bike.
His death came following a beef with Chief Keef’s Glory Boyz Entertainment camp, namely rappers Lil’ Reese and Lil’ Durk.
Chief Keef laughed at news of Coleman’s death on his Twitter account.
“hahahahahhahahahahahahahaahhAAHAHAHAHA #RichNi**aShit,” Keef wrote. “Its Sad Cuz Dat N***a Jojo Wanted To Be Jus Like Us #LMAO.”
Chief Keef’s rambunctious behavior and legal woes has caused many promoters to stray clear of him.
A Milwaukee club cancelled the appearance of famed “Drill” rapper Chief Keef due to his criminal history, according 620WTMJ.
Milwaukee’s Club 618 was the destination of the “Chicago Drift Tour,” which features various Windy City talent, including King Louie and the “Hate Being Sober” rapper.
Keef’s most recent legal troubles occurred back to back.

Dashcam footage of rapper Chief Keef’s speeding arrest has hit the net. Chief Keef, born Kieth Cozart, was caught “lacking” in traffic after Northfield Police clocked him driving 110 mph on the Edens Expressway. Keef’s arrest came following a performance in Davenport, Iowa.
In the video, a very respectful Chief Keef answers and follows the orders of Northfield Police. Once out of his BMW X6 M, Keef is placed in handcuffs and asked a series of questions. Police learn that the young rapper had $8000 in his pockets after being asked how much money was on.
A very comical response from Chief Keef comes towards the end of video when an officer shows him how fast he was going on the speedometer.
“You see that on the dash board up here. The two numbers… well actually the one number… the 110,that’s you okay. That’s how fast you were going,” said the officer.
“That’s a fast car, that’s why I bought it,” said Chief Keef.

The Interscope artist was also arrested and charged with disorderly conduct after being found in possession of marijuana in a hotel room.
The Chicago native was arrested at the LeMeridan Hotel at 111 Perimeter Center West in Dunwoody, north of Atlanta, a spokesman for the Dunwoody Police Department told the Chicago Tribune.
Chief Keef, whose real name is Keith Farelle Cozart, was booked in the DeKalb County Jail at 4:37 p.m. and released on his own recognizance around 3:20 a.m. today, the Tribune reports.

“Jus Got Out Of Dekalb County jail In Atlanta Mad As f---,” he wrote.
The rapper posted his mug shot onto his Instagram account.
Interscope artist Chief Keef was sentenced to 60 Days in a juvenile detention center for violating his probation earlier this year.
Juvenile Court Judge Carl Anthony Walker ordered Chief Keef into custody for his role in operating a firearm during an interview with Pitchfork Media in June 2012.
Walker ordered the online music publication to turn over “the entire unedited version” of Chicago rapper Chief Keef holding a rifle at a gun range. In the video, Chief Keef can be seen shooting the weapon inside the gun range.
Chief Keef 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.
