Chicago rapper Chief Keef was immediately sentenced today to do two months behind bars at the Illinois Youth Center in St. Charles, after violating his parole last summer at a gun range, according to Idris “Peeda Pan” Abdul, a member of the rapper’s management team.
Here’s what Peeda had to say:
“I think that overall we would have preferred for him not to have to sit down for a single day. Overall, I think it’s the best decision to satisfy everybody. The City of Chicago got what they want….. we done been to hell and back already, so shit ain’t nothing.
Keef was also hit with a lawsuit for failing to appear at scheduled UK performance in December, and Peeda states that promoters had all been alerted about his current status.
“Most of the promoters in shows we were committed to were already aware this might happen. All of those shows will be rescheduled for a later time. We have a GBE album that’s going to be dropping featuring everybody on the roster… Regardless of whether he was going in or not, that was the gameplan anyway. Extending their careers as well.”
