Sosa is finally free. Controversial Chicago teen rapper Chief Keef was released from a juvenile detention center yesterday (March 14). 

The “Don’t Like” rapper served two months for a parole violation. An ill-conceived interview with Pitchfork that was held at a gun range is what sent Keef back to the kiddie bing.

The Chicago Tribune reports:

Some two dozen relatives and supporters snapped photos with their cellphones Thursday as South Side rapper Chief Keef walked out of the Cook County Juvenile Justice Center after completing a 60-day sentence for violating his probation for a gun conviction.

The 17-year-old rap sensation was taken into custody Jan. 15 after a juvenile court judge ruled that Chief Keef had violated his probation by firing a rifle at a gun range during an on-camera promotion for his music last summer.

Will Keef get baptized as planned now that he’s a free man, though? Even his grandmother isn’t so sure. “Keith talked to me sideways about it,” Margaret Carter, Keef’s grandmother, told DNAInfo Chicago on Wednesday (March 13). “That’s his old neighborhood pastor. There’s no telling what he told Corey, and if he’ll do something different. But Keith’s little sister says she wants to go with him. And my oldest son says he wants to get baptized again, too. … We’ll see what Sunday brings us.”

DNAInfo also reports that Keef is no longer on probation. Check out photos of Keef leaving juvie and his first pics after getting back his freedom in the gallery.
