Chief Keef Posts Firearm Pics Despite Past Gun Issues
Since his entrance into the collective public mindset, teenage rapper Chief Keef has had repeated run-ins with the law, mostly stemming from his apparent love of firearms.
But multiple stints in juvenile detention centers haven’t stopped the Chicago rapper from posting a series of photos to his Instagram account, one of which featured Keef pointing a gun straight at the camera. Another pic shows a large gun in an unknown person’s lap, presumably Keef’s. A third photo features a masked man pointing two guns at the camera, with the caption “#squad.”
The rapper has been in Paris, where he posted other pictures to his Instagram, including a photo of him in front of the Eiffel Tower.
In 2011, Chief Keef (real name Keith Cozart) was charged with aggravated assault with a firearm on a police officer and was sentenced to home confinement at his grandmother’s house. Last January, he was admitted to a juvenile detention facility for 60 days after violating terms of his 18-month parole sentence by carrying a gun in an interview with Pitchfork.
Chief Keef’s debut album, Finally Rich, was released last December and hit No. 29 on the Billboard 200. His top single, “Love Sosa,” peaked at No. 56 on the Hot 100.
