The new rapper for Interscope Records, Chief Keef, may be more trouble than he’s worth. Chicago police are seeking to put the young kid into custody after concluding that there is a strong possibility that he may be linked to a slew of homicides that have occurred around the city. While they are not saying that the rapper himself committed the killings, they believe that his gang affiliations and mass marketing of the beef through Keef’s musical interests are singing the tune of death for young black men all across Chicago.
The attention of police was gained when Keef wrote a less-than-sympathetic tweet in response to the murder of the rapper Lil Jojo, who was killed shortly after attacking Keef and his associates in a music video. Keef’s twitter account listed the disturbing letters, “LMAO” right after a remark about Jojo’s death. After getting a negative backlash from his 200,000 fans, Keef said that his account had been hacked.
Chief Keef’s real name is Keith Cozart. Most of his music videos reflect and market the growing violence and gang culture that haunts some parts of the south side of Chicago. The rapper was already on probation for pointing a gun at a police officer and police are seeking to get him back behind bars. Officers are alleging that when Chief Keef appeared in a music video holding a rifle, he was in violation of his probation.
The on-going feud between the Lamron faction of the Black Disciples and the Gangster Disciples’ Brick Squad faction appears to be the source of much of the conflict. Other murders, such as that of 26-year old Keith Bonds, appear to be connected to the feud. The murder of Bonds is alleged to be connected to a video in which Bonds and his associates taunted Lil Jojo after he was murdered.
Chief Keef has not been charged with any crimes. Interscope Records picked him up and gave him a contract while he was under house arrest for pointing his gun at a police officer. Police say that if the rapper comes back to Chicago, he is in danger and putting him into custody is for his own protection.
