Twitter Responds With Mirth As Tearful Chief Keef Sentenced To 60 Days

It looks as though playing the bad boy rapper has finally backfired on Chief Keef, who pleaded with a judge to go easy on him on Thursday last week (January 17, 2013), the Chicago Sun-Times reported. The 17 year old was apparently tearful as he was sentenced to 60 days in a juvenile detention center, for violating his probation, on a gun conviction.

Keef made the slip-up when he conducted an interview with the Pitchfork music site at a gun range. Probably not the smartest thing he’s ever done. He also tried to convince the court that he’s really not as violent and murderous as he makes out in his lyrics and pleaded with the judge “I am a very good-hearted person… I am sorry for anything that I have done wrong. ... Give me a chance.” Judge Carl Anthony Walker was not impressed by the Chicago rapper’s pleas, however, and sentenced him to 60 days on the inside. In addition to revoking the probation for Chief Keef (real name Keth Cozart), which he received for pointing a gun at Chicago police officers, Walker also made him a ward of the state. This means that he was removed from the custody of an uncle and grandmother. This was deemed necessary in order to protect the public and because of his blatant disregard for the court orders.

On Twitter, many users of the social media site have been responding to the news with mirth, with one user, @Nigel_D commenting “I’m booking Chief Keef for an anti-gun rally” and another, more seriously, “To all you kids that look up to Chief Keef, there's someone by the name of Lupe that actually stands for something, search him up” (@AimanofArabia).
