no bangbang in court
Chicago rapper Chief Keef was sentenced Tuesday to 60 days in juvenile detention for violating his probation on a gun conviction.
Chief Keef, whose real name is Keith Cozart, appeared at a gun range in a promotional video for his music, violating a court order to avoid contact with firearms, the judge ruled. Cozart signed a record deal with Interscope last year and recently released his debut album “Finally Rich.”
Cozart, 17, was on probation for pointing a gun at Chicago Police officers.
The rapper pleaded with Judge Carl Anthony Walker not to sentence him to juvenile detention, breaking down into tears several times, but the judge said he could not tolerate the teen’s “ blatant violations of the court’s order.”
After court, his manager said he would release a single by Chief Keef on Thursday.
