From Cuffs To Christ: Chief Keef To Be Baptized


(AllHipHop News) Everyone deserves a second chance and after his juvenile bid, Chief Keef will have a second life. Chicago’s “Rooftop Pastor” Reverand Corey Brooks plans on baptizing the  trouble teen MC once he returns.

Rev. Brooks visited Chief Keef and claims the teen “is not a bad kid” and  mis-perception, not pure evil, is the reason for his mischief, according to Global Grind.  “I think people forget he is 17 years old,” Brooks says. The New Beginnings Church pastor further humanized the destructive image of Chief Keef Keith Cozart:

“He is an entertainer, that is how he sees himself. But at the same time, he has a God-consciousness. He is not some terror who is wreaking havoc.”

The baptism is expected to take place at Rev. Brooks’ New Beginnings Church in Chicago’s  Woodlawn neighborhood.

Corey Brooks is known as the “rooftop pastor” for his 94-day vigil atop a  now-demolished Super Motel across from the New Beginnings Church aimed to bring a community center to the area in the midst of the recent violence. The innovative religious leader received $100,000 from Tyler Perry in February of last year.

In addition to a baptism, Chief Keef will be coming home to a child support case for a baby he allegedly fathered in 2011.
