Prosecutors Seek To Jail Rapper Chief Keef Over Sudden Move To Upscale Neighborhood


(AllHipHop News) Chicago rapper Chief Keef will start off the new year fighting for his freedom in court tomorrow (January 2).

Prosecutors are attempting to put Chief Keef in jail, after he moved from his old residence, without telling his probation officer.

The rap star, born Keith Cozart, has moved from a residence with his uncle, into a house in the upscale neighborhood of Northbrook.

The sudden move has angered his probation officers and caused alarm for some of the residents of Northbrook, who fear his ties to the Black Gangster Disciples could bring problems to the neighborhood.

The rapper, who is on probation for pointing a gun at a police officer, is also facing a court date later in the month for a separate, alleged parole violation.

In that case, Chief Keef is accused of holding a gun at a range in New York in a video for Pitchfork Media, in violation of his probation.

    They’re trying their best to lock his ass up.

    • hoeyuno

      when your on probation/parole you need to tell them everything.. especially if you move. doesn’t matter if your a rapper a nun or a gynacologist.

      • Renegade

        That’s true but for most people if they can still get in contact with you it’s usually not a problem. His probation officer must not like him.

      • kale

        lol, don’t talk about something you know nothing about. if you’re on probation and move to another house without telling your parole officer, you’re an ignorant ass breaking the law once again and basically asking to be sent to prison

      • Renegade

        Like I said no jail time for him. If the P.O. could still contact him all he had to do was give his new address. They just want to lock his ass up.

  • Standard violation, you can’t move without reporting it if you’re on paper.
    3-9months or revocation.

    • hoeyuno

      yea straight up. this kid is getting harder to defend daily.. no wonder interscope wants to drop him.

  • ant662

    no crime is a smart one but pointing a gun at an officer is just plain retarded. this dude cant be the brightest crayon in the box

  • TruthSerum

    They gave this kid probation for pointing a gun at a cop???

    • dollar61

      he lucky they didn’t shoot his ass

    • hoeyuno

      yea he lucky as hell for that one… don’t know why he would put hisself in a dumb position like this.

      • TruthSerum

        Kids get put on probation for selling drugs, you’d think pointing a weapon at a cop would have carried some kind of incarceration.

        No wonder Chicago’s out of control.

      • johnblacksad

        I’m amazed too… cops have merked n!ggaz for less than that

  • Dadon850

    First of all, how in the hell do you only get probation for pointing a gun at a cop?? Second, it appears Cheif Keef feels he can do whatever the hell he wants while on probation. Big mistake. If he has a probation officer anything close to the one time in my life I was on probation, he’s screwed. I did everything right and she still treated me like sh!t!! We’ll see tho.

    • Guest

      well im sure pointing a gun was not the original charge, but plea deal he took, so NO he is not doing probation for waivin shit at the cop literally, cuz we all know hed be dead if that was the case. they seem to want him bad, it is ridicilous he IS 17 after all, any other kid would be on oprah w whole country pettin him . love sosa !

      • Dadon850

        You sound like a damn fool

  • Now I understand him moving without contacting his officers is violating, but how the residents of the neighborhood gon kick him out? That’s some old racist bullshit from the MLK days, they better not let them crackas get away wit that institutionalized racism, sound like some felony shit to me. What happened to freedom?

    • hoeyuno

      ppls work hard to move there family to nice neighborhoods. think about it.. a 17 year old knucklehead buys a house in the burbs. think about his crew at his house 24/7 getting drunk fighting on the lawn… its not a racist thing.. these ppl have the right to be concerned whether there white, black, red,green or taricota orange…

      • YaheardSyndicate

        he worked hard to move into a nice neighborhood too. What makes their work more hard then his. He hasnt even moved in yet and they are bugging.

      • hoeyuno

        look if it was anyone but this kid I would agree with ya’ll if it was rick ross I would agree that its on some racist ish.. but this kid is still young.. and he works hard??? gimme a break this kid cancelled his whole tour. misses appointments with execs…. and look maybe this kid will prove wrong and be a great addition to the neighborhood I just don’t think he’s mature enough to have his own place in any neighborhood.

      • brotha_man

        the problem is his lyrics and this murder thing with lil jojo I dont think this is racist at all…..if i was his neighbor i would want him to prove his self. because for 1 he is a BD, lets say he wants to move away from that life. are they gonna let him or are they gonna come after him? will his enemies follow? Im all for the brother making life changes, and wish the best for him. but he needs to prove that he has left the foolery behind

      • Hot Girlz

        Are you stupid? Why would I want a hooligan like Cheif Keef to come and move to my neighborhood? It’s not good for the quality of life, property value and safety of a property owner. You damn right I would be concerned.

      • johnblacksad

        stray bullets make the difference…

      • Product of Da Reagan Era

        Most people don’t shit where they eat. He was probably moving and didn’t tell the cops because he didn’t want his new dwelling publicized….too late now. How did they know he was moving into the neighborhood anyway, they kids must have told them. He better hope he don’t come across a George Zimmerman.

    • TruthSerum

      I bet if a white skinhead who always gets in trouble moved to that neighborhood they would kick him out just as quick.

      It’s not always about race, it’s about class. Nobody wants a criminal living next door.

      • Sean Taylor

        “it’s about class.”

        DING DING DING..we have a winner!!

      • True, but White people don’t think like that. If a high class Black or Spanish man move in the neighborhood, they still gon contest. A Black family would have a better chance than a single Black man of any stature.

    • Brad

      Hey, I live in Northbrook and I want him the hell out and it’s got nothing to do with him being black- It’s because he’s a degenerate, criminal scumbag who can’t bring anything positive to our community. The fact that he’s affiliated with gangs is enough to not want him here but he’s also being looked at for murder, clearly cant follow laws, and surely has an entourage that is just as bad as he is. Get him out of here and toss him back in the ghetto where he belongs or better yet- in prison.

      • Q.

        Are you a Hip-Hop fan? I felt a lot of hate in that comment.

      • Hot Girlz

        You don’t have to be a hiphop fan to voice your concerns about a hoodlum moving in his neighborhood.

      • Q.

        True. But most people who comment here have at least some interest in the culture. This cat made an effort to come here and demonstrate his bigotry to those of us who do. IJS

      • Brad

        No I am not a hip hop fan, but you’re right- I definitely do have a lot of hate for gang affiliated, degenerate criminal scumbags.

      • Q.

        That’s what I thought. So basically you came to a forum that you have no particular interest in just to spew HATE.

        LOL You told on yourself in your opening sentence “…I want him the hell out and it’s got nothing to do with him being black..” Who mentioned anything about “race?” TFOH

      • Brad

        My first post was a response to Fred’s where he made it about race. That’s why I brought it up. We are a very diverse community, it has absolutely nothing to do with race. It is all the ignorant people posting here that are playing the race card. Whenever it’s a black guy, it MUST be about race, right? Don’t be stupid. And my friend told me about this clown and I googled it, which led me here. And I’m not spewing hate. It’s called concern. This guy is a certifiable piece of crap and I’m sorry, I don’t want him here. I feel terrible for his new neighbors.

      • Q.

        “It is all the ignorant people posting here that are playing the race card. Whenever it’s a black guy, it MUST be about race, right? Don’t be stupid.”

        Brad, the term “race card” is trite and overused. There would be no race cards if there was no RACISM. It’s just a corny defense closet racists use to get off the hook for making ignorant remarks in public. I see it all the time…STOP IT.

        And speaking of STUPID, you said:

        “Get him out of here and toss him back in the ghetto where he belongs…”

        So, if it has “absolutely nothing to do with race,” then how do you justify this statement? That sounds like some racist bullish!t to me. …No?

      • Before you can discuss……ANYTHING…..concerning being Black in America, you must BE Black in America PERIOD I’m here in America with an English surname, it will forever be about race to me, to US.

      • There’s Black people with the last name Hogan, HOGAN MUTHAFUCKAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • I think you just cracked a case. No wonder Black websites get a lot of hate. These racist muthafuckas click on some random “Black man did this” link and come sling they verbal bullshit

    • johnblacksad

      You should ask about the building Yoko Ono lives in, on Park Av. Manhattan… some billionaires were denied the authorization to purchase there by the actual residents

    • johnblacksad

      and you know that house was bout to get shot up any minute now… i can’t blame the neighbors

      • Lol at some niggas drivin to a protected White neighborhood to kill a 17 year old nigga they could have killed when he was still in the projects. Logic White people, use it.

      • johnblacksad

        you are a one of a kind stretching azz n!gga…

        you mean his new house in a white protected neighborhood ain’t supposed to get shot up if this lil’ n!gga keeps doin dumb sh!t?!
        Logic huh?! fcukin square azz nucca… get off mines

      • If they wanted the nigga dead, he would be dead, not in some upscale neighborhood, nothin you just said means anything

      • johnblacksad

        who said anybody wanted him dead right now? i’m talkin bout him gettin into some sh!t later will not stop his new house from getting shot up… i swear you are too either too fcukin dumb or too ashamed to admit how dumb you are

      • He ain’t in the streets no more, what he gone do to make niggas mad

      • johnblacksad

        anyways… you get the point

  • Nemesis_Enforcer

    This is what a slave looks like in 2013. You need permission to move to a different house. wow.

    • ant662

      actually you don’t unless you committ a stupid crime and end up on probation then you have to follow their rules and not having a permanent residence or moving without telling your p.o. is a violation.

  • They Really Fuckin With This Kid about Bullshit!!! come on because he moved???

  • ant662

    somebody pointed this out and i have to agree why does dude always look like he hasnt changed his clothes or took a shower in a week.

  • yea man, thats that lock-up defense they playin. they need to cut that bullshyt out. prolly all kind of g.d’s waitin on him. im prayin 4 yu lil homie hold ya head up and stay yo ass outta trouble. 300 GLORY- PEACE MASTER

  • Q.

    I’m not sure why anyone would be surprised. This boy is literally
    uneducated, borderline learning disability and no parents. He can barely form a complete sentence. You think just because some opportunistic devil music exec put a check in this kid’s hand everything is all gravy now? Be serious.

    Cash is great for purchasing sh!t , but no dollar amount puts KNOWLEDGE in
    your head or gives you CHARACTER or DISCIPLINE. When are y’all gonna
    learn to stop expecting so much from these braindead rappers? They’re just food for the machine.

    • fuknyourgirl2

      true but if u know where he from ud know his environment made him that way an he is not that bad if u compare him to everyone around him how could u hate ur child that ur country made its not his fault that the schools in the chi suck an are run down an closed or that he has to live an survive harsh conditions but we have to teach the young ones before we can judge them be cuz he is lost youth just like the rest of his generation he is a miracle that he is alive an makin it coming where hes from however u percieve him u still should have luv for him cuz hes ur child right or wrong….we made him (society)

      • Q.

        I grew up in the same city, so I understand the circumstances perfectly. Don’t get it twisted–I’m not criticizing Keef as much as I am the promotion of his music to the youth. Like you said, he’s a product of a broken home, poor upbringing, and a failing school system. It bothers me that Interscope is profiting off of Keef’s brand of music, especially when they know he’s severely uneducated, and coming from one of the most violent neighborhoods in a city plagued by gun violence. We had literally 500+ murders in 2012, and most of the victims were under 18. Yeah, we can listen to whatever we want, but the kids out here don’t need to have their minds filled with “bang! bang!” music right now. I’m not saying Keef and other kids struggling out here can’t be helped, but the problems we’re dealing with are systemic. And I don’t see how Jimmy Iovine is helping the situation by enabling a KID to make more music about killing KIDS, ya dig? If Interscope was a responsible company, they would at least demand Keef get a GED before giving him a contract. Even pro sports won’t take you unless you finish high school, right? This shows me that they don’t really give a sh!t about this kid’s life. If they’re not making an effort to help us get our hoods right, then they don’t need to be dangling cash in front of these kids faces to come work on their plantation. I feel it’s immoral. Keef could be dead or in jail in a year or two–all they wanna do is recoup their money and move on to the next hot n!gga. That’s why I said he’s “food” for this beast.

      • TruthSerum

        If it makes you feel any better, Interscope aint making a whole lot of money off that flop album he just put out, lol

      • Q.

        That’s okay. A 360 deal covers more than album sales.

    • “This boy is literally uneducated, borderline learning disability and no parents.” You must be his probation officer, how did his formal evaluation go over?

      • Q.

        You’re 17. Why do you have a probation officer?

  • Sean Taylor

    Hey looks at me. I can make symbols with my fingaz. Am I kool of what yall?

  • lol so what this dude was supposed to stay in the hood, end up like stack bundles?rip…

  • Some dudes make it out the neighborhood and won’t surface..
    they let the money make them nervous, what’s the purpose?

    Who done came up in the hood? ….money can’t come back…
    Fk that
