According to his probation order, Keef is not allowed to have a firearm, a stipulation which may be determined to have been violated during the interview.
The Chicago Sun Times reports that on Wednesday (Oct. 17), prosecutors asked Judge Carl Anthony Walker to throw Keef behind bars for breaching the rules of his probation. The footage in question shows the Chicago native firing a weapon, but Pitchfork later removed the interview amid criticism.
Chicago Police officials explained that putting Keef behind bars would stop him from harming himself or others, plus send a message to potential offenders. “Anytime he is in Chicago, he is a potential target and anyone around him is in jeopardy, including innocent kids,” said chief of the Chicago Police Department’s Organized Crime Bureau, Nicholas Roti.
Keef is certainly no stranger to bad decisions. Following the death of rival and fellow rapper, Lil JoJo, authorities were looking into whether or not he had anything to do with the homicide. Weeks later, the youngster posted a s-xually explicit photo on Instagram, and had his account shut down.
