According to Idris “Peeda Pan” Abdul Wahid, a member of the rapper’s management team, Keef; real name Keith Cozart, began serving his time immediately after sentencing this afternoon.
“I think that overall we would have preferred for him not to have to sit down for a single day,” Peeda told Complex. “Overall, I think it’s the best decision to satisfy everybody. The City of Chicago got what they want… We done been to hell and back already, so s**t ain’t nothing.”
According to reports from the Chicago-Sun Times was that the rapper tearfully pleaded with Judge Carl Anthony Walker not to sentence him to juvenile detention but the judge said he could not tolerate the teen’s “ blatant violations of the court’s order.
However, Andrew Barber of FakeShoreDrive state that a source inside of the courtroom said it was Keef’s mother who was crying and not the rapper. The rapper was convicted of a parole violation on Tuesday, after he was filmed holding a rifle at a gun range during an interview with Pitchfork.TV. Handling firearms was a violation of his probation.
