“I beg you please,” Chief Keef told Juvenile Court Judge Carl Anthony Walker. “Give me one more chance to show you. .. I am a very good hearted person. I have not picked up any more cases… That’s not my life anymore.”
The 17-year-old rapper, whose real name is Keith Cozart, then he broke down in sobs.
But the judge hit him with a two-month sentence, nonetheless. Keef then hugged and kissed his mother and grandmother before heading off to serve his time.
Prosecutors brought the probation violation case against the Interscope Records star after he appeared in a Pitchfork.com video holding a rifle at a New York gun range. Earlier this week, Walker said Chief Keef exhibited a “clear disregard for the court’s authority” in appearing with the gun.
Before being sentenced, prosecutors read lyrics from Chief Keef’s “Love Sosa” rap on his “Finally Rich” album, which debuted last month to strong sales.
Prosecutors pointed to lyrics that mentioned gangs and guns, a sign that the teen was unrepentant.
Chief Keef, in addressing the judge, called the lyrics “bull stuff.”
The sentence means Chief Keef will have to delay touring to support his new record.
NOW HOW GANGSTER ARE YOU REALLY TO CRY OVER TWO MONTHS IN A YOUTH DETENTION CENTER? THAT IS AS LENIENT AS IT IS GONE GET FOR SOMEBODY WHO IS ON PROBATION FOR SHOOTING AT POLICE OFFICERS BUT TO EACH ITS OWN. #SWBY
