Chief Keef has been sentenced to 60 days in juvenile detention for violating his probation.
As we previously reported, a judge found the 17-year-old Chicago rapper (real name Keith Cozart) violated his probation when he visited a gun range in New York City for an interview with Pitchfork.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Chief Keef chocked up before the sentence was handed down by the judge and apologized for firing a rifle during the Pitchfork interview.
Chief Keef’s probation barred him from having any contact with firearms. The rapper is on probation for pointing a gun at a Chicago police officer. He was sentenced to 18 months probation in January of last year.
Reading from a crumpled piece of paper, the teenage rapper pleaded for another chance, telling the judge he was close to finishing his GED and was a new father of two daughters.
“I’m sorry for all the wrong I have done,” Chief Keef told the judge.
Assistant State’s Attorney Jullian Brevard said Chief Keef had two previous drug arrests prior to his 2011 gun conviction. She also pointed out how some of Chief Keef’s lyrics on “Love Sosa” reference his gun conviction as well as gangs and drugs.
Chief Keef is reportedly affiliated with Chicago’s Black Disciples gang, which uses the number 300. The rapper even has the number in his Twitter handle, BigGucciSosa300.
“He’s been given ample opportunities to stop this behavior,” Brevard said.
Chief Keef’s Finally Rich debut was released last month.
The cover art of his latest mixtape, Bang the Mixtape Part 2, features an animated version of himself holding a gun.
