Chief Keef Released from Jail

Keith Cozart is once again on his way out of prison, this time nine days early. The artist, better known as Chief Keef, spent just over a week at the Cook County Jail in Illinois for violating probation by failing a drug test. The 20 day sentence was reduced due to “good behavior,” according to the Chicago Tribune. Keef, who recently released a new mixtape Almighty So, has had a tumultuous few years to say the least and could very well be headed for a dim-lit end soon if he doesn’t figure things out and get his head about him.

Currently facing hundreds of thousands in court fees and lawsuits for failing to show up to scheduled shows, the money from the deal he signed late last year seems to be waning. For his part, Keef has been on his game, releasing two projects (Bang Pt. 2since the summer, although the lean may be taking its toll. His puddle-stomping in his latest video for “Love No Thotties” might be the clearest glimpse at the (for now) deep-pocketed, overgrown child that is Chief Keef. Here’s to hoping Keef can get it all together and turn things around with his new found freedom.
