Chief Keef is free to roam the streets, make music, and continue to be a stereotypical representation of Chicago’s youth. Not to be hard on the guy, but Keith Cozart, is a walking stereotype, and now that he’s free, certain items should be on his list of priorities.
Keef’s started 2013 being sentenced to 60-days in a juvenile correction facility. He was released last Thursday (March 14). Being in jail gave the 17-year-old time to reflect on his life, which seemed to be an endless spiral of unfortunate predicaments including violating his parole (which sent him to custody in the first place), being looked at in the shooting death of aspiring rapper Joseph “Lil Jo Jo” Coleman, and getting sued for child support by a middle school student, to name a few.
Months after his “I Don’t Like” record became the toast of YouTube, and the public spotlight brightened, Keef’s media clips changed drastically. Within months, the rapper was painted as a criminal misfit, involved in gang activity. To be clear, he did little to change the perception, but once things started getting real, and his notoriety resulted in probation officials setting their gaze on the “Love Sosa” rhymer, the trajectory of his career was marred by one legal snag after the other.
It’s still early, so lets not assume he’s done a complete change, but what we can do is give Keef a nudge down the right path. Check out 10 Things Chief Keef Should Do Now That He’s Out Of Custody.
