The rising teen rapper, Chief Keef, was sentenced to 60 days in jail Thursday for violating his probation from a previous gun charge — when he pointed a gun at Chicago cops.
While in court, Keef pleaded with the judge. Crying like a baby as a matter of fact. “I beg you please,” Chief Keef told Juvenile Court Judge Carl Anthony Walker. “Give me one more chance to show you. .. I am a very good hearted person. I have not picked up any more cases… That’s not my life anymore.”
The 17-year-old rapper, whose real name is Keith Cozart, then he broke down in sobs. But the judge hit him with a two-month sentence, nonetheless. Keef then hugged and kissed his mother and grandmother before heading off to serve his time.
Prosecutors brought the probation violation case against the Interscope Records star after he appeared in a Pitchfork.com video holding a rifle at a New York gun range. Earlier this week, Walker said Chief Keef exhibited a “clear disregard for the court’s authority” in appearing with the gun.
Before being sentenced, prosecutors read lyrics from Chief Keef’s “Love Sosa” rap on his “Finally Rich” album, which debuted last month to strong sales.
Prosecutors pointed to lyrics that mentioned gangs and guns, a sign that the teen was unrepentant.
Chief Keef, in addressing the judge, called the lyrics “bull stuff.”
The sentence means Chief Keef will have to delay touring to support his new record.
