Sosa is free, for now. Yesterday (Oct. 23) morning, Chief Keef was released from Cook County jail in Chicago for good behavior after serving a grand total of nine days after failing a court mandated drug test. 

The “Don’t Like” rapper was sentenced to 20 days after testing positive for weed. However, thanks to staying out of trouble in the bing, he earned an early release.

Reports the Chicago Tribune:

Cozart was sentenced Oct. 15 but was released this morning after receiving good time credit which cut his sentence in half, said Lisa Gordon, a spokeswoman for the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office. 

Sophia Ansari, a spokeswoman for the Cook County Sheriff’s office said the rap star was not released early but rather he earned his release for good conduct while in custody. Inmates arrested on non-violent offenses are eligible for day for day credit if they exhibit good conduct in jail.

The judge that sentenced him also gave him one day credit the day he was taken into custody which brought the total days he served to nine days Ansari said.

Chief Keef is due back in family court for an ongoing paternity case on December 10. The struggle continues.
