Chicago rapper Chief Keef was taken into custody on Tuesday (Jan. 15) after a judge ruled that the 17-year-old had violated his probation.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the rapper (real name: Keith Cozart) was handcuffed and taken out of court during a probation hearing on Tuesday. Keef is being held until a sentencing hearing on Thursday.
Chief Keef was reportedly sentenced to 18 months probation in January 2012 for pointing a gun at a Chicago police officer. Judge Carl Anthony Walker ruled that Cozart violated his probation, which barred him from coming into contact with any firearms, by visiting a gun range in New York last June. The visit was part of a promotional video for Pitchfork.com; the video has since been removed.
After his breakout single "I Don't Like" was remixed by Kanye West last year for GOOD Music's "Cruel Summer" album, Keef released his debut album, "Finally Rich," on Glory Boyz/Interscope last month. The full-length has sold 91,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and its current single "Love Sosa," which refers to the rapper's Sosa nickname, sits at No. 66 on the Hot 100.
