Yersterday, Chigago rapper Chief Keef was sentenced Chief Keef to 60 days in a juvenile lockup for violating his 18-month probation by firing a rifle at a New York gun range last summer during an on-camera promotion for Complex Magazine.
"I'm sorry for all the wrong I have done," the choked-up 17-year-old told a judge as his lawyer patted him on the back. "I just want you to know I can do (better)."
Chief Keef was taken into custody Tuesday after the judge ruled his actions at the gun range violated his probation. He was prohibited from any contact with guns while on probation.
At Thursday's hearing, Chief Keef sat hunched over at times while Assistant State's Attorney Jullian Brevard reminded the judge about two previous drug arrests on the rapper's record before his gun conviction for pointing a weapon at a Chicago police officer. The prosecutor also noted how some of the lyrics in the rapper's song "Love Sosa" refer to his gun conviction as well as to gangs and drugs.
"He's been given ample opportunities to stop this behavior," Brevard said.
Chief Keef's lawyer, Dennis Berkson, acknowledged to the court that the video wasn't a smart decision on his client's part, but Berkson reiterated that the video was just an interview.
