Chief Keef - Police Axe Chief Keef Gig Over Violence Fears

Police in Illinois have cancelled a concert featuring rapper Chief Keef over security concerns.

The hip-hop star was set to perform at the Olympic Theater in Cicero on Saturday (14Jun14) but local authorities have decided to pull the plug on the gig.

Police Superintendent Bernard Harrison has confirmed his force fears Keef's presence at the venue could spark violence.

He tells the Chicago Tribune, "We have indications from intelligence sources that there were going to be problems and there have been many problems at his concerts in other places. I spoke to the director of the theater myself and asked if he could cancel the concert. He complied with my request."

It is the latest blow for the embattled rapper in recent weeks - he was evicted from his home earlier this month (Jun14) for allegedly falling behind on the rent, and his cousin Blood Money was shot and killed in Chicago in April (14).
