Swizz Beatz believes the media is making Interscope artist Chief Keef the scapegoat for violence in Chicago.
The super producer and wine connoisseur sat down with Global Grind to discuss youth violence in Chicago.
I think it’s bigger than him. Chief Keef is just a name people can relate to because he’s in the entertainment business. But, I think the real reason is the youth, period, with nowhere to go, no plans, and they’re just resorting to living however they want to live. You go to a different country and they don’t have no support, no food, it’s the same thing. It’s just that we’re knowing about it more because there’s a celebrity name involved, but I wouldn’t even put that on him. This has been going on for years. They shut down the whole Cabrini–Green a long time ago. This been happening. But the key thing is how is it going to stop happening? Is it arts? Is it music? That’s the thing to figure out.
Does Swizz Beats have a point? Sound off below.
