After a probation violation last year, rapper Chief Keef, was sentenced to 60 days in a juvenile detention center today. The 17 year-old rapper, tearfully pleaded with Judge Carl Anthony Walker, saying "I am a good-hearted person. I am sorry for anything I have done wrong...give me a chance."
Keef, real name Keith Cozart, has been the focus of a lot of controversy lately (Lil Jojo murder ties, rumors of Interscope planning to drop him). Hopefully, this time out of the spotlight will give the young musician time to reevaluate what he plans to do with his career and how to keep himself out of trouble in the future.
The Chicago Sun-Times just reported that Chief Keef was taken into custody this afternoon after a judge found out he was violating his probation. Those are literally all the details as of now. Look for an update as more surface...
UPDATE: The arrest does indeed stem from his firing of a gun in a video with Pitchfork last year. He'll be held in custody until his sentencing on Thursday.
