Chief Keef is back in the news yet again. An Instagram photo featuring Keef, his mother and cousin Fredo Santana flashing gang signs has started going viral. 

The photo, taken late last year, features the Chicago rapper and family members all flashing the “O Block” sign, an offshoot faction of the violent Black Disciples street gang.  This latest bit of controversy adds to a growing list of instances involving the 17-year-old Windy City native, including the shooting death of a stepbrother and the “I Don’t Like” rapper’s current 2-month stint in juvenile detention sentence for parole violation.

Not much is known about Chief Keef’s mother, save for a few scattered photos on the Web. It is known that the artist is not close to his father, Alfosno Cozart; this according to a report from Chicago after Keef’s stepbrother Ulysses “Chris” Gissendanner III was slain.

Keef’s long-rumored gang affiliations have been fodder for the media ever since the unsolved killing of rival rapper and alleged gang member Joseph “Lil JoJo” Coleman launched a police investigation.

With recent reports of a $6 million Interscope record deal on the line and a child support lawsuit from a middle school girl, Chief Keef’s management team has more damage control to undertake after this latest snafu since parole boards don’t take kindly to parolees kicking it with gangs.

Check out the full pic, and others Sosa may want to consider removing, in the gallery.
