Teenage rapper Chief Keef was released from jail today. The Chicago rapper walked out of the Cook County Juvenile Temporary Detention Center in a red diamond-studded after completing his 60-day sentence for violating his probation for a gun conviction.
Chief Keef was greeted by his baby daughter and about two dozen family members and supporters. His uncle was seen carrying a garbage bag full of notebooks, possibly lyrics Keef wrote while behind bars.
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. Two days after he was taken into custody in January, Chief Keef pleaded with the judge to be released, but the judge refused.
“I’m sorry for all the wrong I have done,” the choked-up Chief Keef said at the time. “I just want you to know I can do (better).”
