Chief Keef may be headed to jail if a juvenile court judge finds that he violated terms of his probation for holding a rifle, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Juvenile Court Judge Anthony Walker ordered Pitchfork Media, an 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 that surface online in June, Chief Keef, whose real name is Keith Cozart, can be seen shooting the weapon inside the gun range.
Keef is on probation for pointing a gun at a Chicago police officer last year.
The “I Don’t Like” rapper has been under intense scrutiny by Chicago prosecutors for two alleged violations on his probation. In addition to the online video, The Interscope Recording artist failed to earn his GED by an August deadline.
The rapper also 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.
“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.
Keef, who is currently in California, wasn’t in attendance at Wednesday’s hearing with the judge’s permission, according to the Tribune. Keef’s next hearing is Dec. 17, a day before his debut album “Finally Rich” drops. Keef could be taken into custody if the judge finds he violated his probation, according to the Tribune.
