Pitchfork Media Ordered To Turn Over Video Of Chief Keef At Gun Range

A judge has ordered Pitchfork Media to hand over their video interview with Chief Keef at a gun range.

This past September, Pitchfork Media found itself in hot water after they retracted a video interview featuring Chief Keef using a firearm, which violates the terms of his probation. Now, in a recent article from the Chicago Tribune, the courts have ordered the music publication hand over a copy of the video.

A judge has ordered Pitchfork Media to hand over the uncut version of its interview with Keef to the prosecuting lawyers in rapper's probation violation case by Wednesday December 12. According to the report, the prosecution has been unable to view the video in question since Pitchfork pulled the video three months ago.

This mandate isn't sitting well with the Chicago-based Internet publication, however. Lawyers representing Pitchfork Media claim that the order is a violation of the company's First Amendment rights as a journalistic publication.

If found guilty of violating the terms of his probation by operating the firearm in the video, Chief Keef could face jail time.

    Anyone who made a racist comment deserves to die. Chief Keef deserves to die. So does everyone else on here who thinks it's worthwhile posting on here - inclusding myself, but I'll remain the exception since I'm seemingly the only one who understands this.

    actually my fault slavery ended in 1863.. so u give or take 100 years it took to change ppls mentality ur lookin at 1963 so if ur rly 50 or under u had chances in life to do better for you, your family and your culture that ur grandparents and so on NEVER had. u have advantages in life now they never had but u on here complaining about white ppl like they fuckin ur life up.. naaah bruh u fuckin ur own life up. but its always a black persons first instinct to blame the 'white man'..btw im black and italian 50/50 mix..

      well dumb ass those slaves didnt know how to read or write. So how the fuck would they kids no how to read or write. Then you had the KKK and racist whites like yourself putting dogs and hanging black people. How can you catch up. White people had a 500 year head start lol.
    • jay
      im assuming ur 1 of the blacks who cant read considering i just mentioned how im white and black.. and sure white ppl had a head start..but the point in ur there now and can make a difference now instead of bitchin about it.. kkk lmao whens the last time u heard of them..theres more black gangs now then ever and there almost all racist towards white ppl
  • Clevelandchief
    @Jay, How a white boy gonna tell me slavery has not affected me at all. You white people are delusional. Pretty soon white people will be saying slavery never happened. @Difference, Just because the White devil has granted a few of your house ni99az a few crumbs you think that makes up for 400+ years of slavery? GTFOH I bet I have more education than all of your so called educated friends combined. I think your confused about who the niggers are and who the real black men are. You got it twisted.
    • jay
      first off how u know im white? how old are u then ill tell u if im wrong.. if ur under 30 the most u experienced is gettin pulled over if that, unless u do illegal shit then u get what u deserve.. and thats whats wrong with black ppl u see someone workin hard and successful and there uncle toms or as u say 'house niggas' get a grip.. its mentality like urs why ppl like u wont even get anywhere in life beside body bagged or jailed..

      I'm not saying there isn't some of that "blame whitey" mentality, but there's still plenty of structural and institutional racism out there too. White people with records get hired over black people; "black-sounding" names on resumes mean fewer callbacks; Stop and Frisk policies specifically target black and brown people. I can keep going...
    • jay
      nah you right about the job back with black names that is true in a sense, but usually if ur qualified youll get it regardless... stop and frisk only applies to those who deserve it USUALLY.. if uve been caught sellin drugs at one point or doing illegal shit the chances of u getting it is high considering ur known..if ur not known why would the cops waste there time friskin a person they know isnt in that life..answer is they wouldnt.... racism is everywhere and id be damned if arabs dont get it the worst here in america..IMO arabs are the new black and they even get it from black ppl to not just whites..
    • Anonymous
      Uhh given the rates at which Stop and Frisk finds stuff (90% Black & Brown; 2% of them have anything), police sure have a shitty knowledge of who is in that life... And, no, with equally qualified people, white names consistently get picked over black. Even less-qualified whites still tend to get it over more qualified blacks too.
    • mudasir
      this nigga jay is right. im arab 100 percent and imagine a name like mudasir and mohammad getting any job in america.. you know how hard it is to find a job for me and my family, plus consistantly getting side looks from you whites and black racist faggots. i was never a terrorist neither is my fam but we still get that look . FOH modern day blacks have no idea what real racism is no more and still pull the race card when its never needed and whites just have no idea regardless, most of them anyway. black ppl think everyone is out to get them when in reality you guys bitched ur way into the corporate world, now ur in it and u still bitchin? FOH nigga.. and white ppl just shut up u got it made ur a notch above black ppl.

      There is nothing wrong with hating ignorance. Chief Keef serves no purpose but to encourage kids his age to act like Jibaboos and wind up in prison. I hope they get the tape as well, get him outta here before he causes any more damage

      White people love Chief Keef. They get to make money off him while simultaneously exploiting and encouraging the worst aspects of the black community. White people win every time a Chief Keef record comes on the radio.

      I'm a white guy in Pittsburgh. I work at a gym. Clearly, this is all my fault and you should hate me because of it.
    • lol
      yeah cuz white people made this dumb fuck sell drugs, do drugs, shoot guns and get on probation then get caught breakin his probation instead of getting an education and going to school to work a full time good paying job... its people like u why black ppl r fucked up, time to stop blaming white ppl for ur fuck ups!

      1. crackerhater is either retarded or a troll or both. 2. "white people win every time CK is played on the radio" TRUTH 3. Stop taking shit personally "anonymous from Pittsburg", nobody is talking about you. That being said, your very existence as a white male (the most privileged group of people in the entire world) is probably enough reason for somebody to hate you. Just deal with it. 4. unfortunately it's a little more complicated than saying white people either are/are not responsible for this. yes, personal responsibility ultimately trumps most things, but without a music/entertainment culture that is pretty much run by white people, this probably wouldn't have happened. 5. Nobody has mentioned that the WHITEST music website in the entire world provided this video. I think this pretty effectively illustrates the greater dynamic at play here.
    • jkdhsa
      the way i see it black people dont even got it nowhere near as bad as arabs, chinese ect. black ppl need 2 just stfu and take advantage of whats been giving to you like lol said..go to school get a education and a job and u wont need 2 worry about gettin arrested for drugs and guns..seems pretty simple, but then again most black ppl are simple themselves
    • clevelandchief
      Real ni99a sh*t. "Whitey" act like we wanted to come here. "Whitey" stole us from Africa. "Whitey" always saying people need to take responsibility, but "Whitey" never took responsibility for slavery or killing off millions of Natives to steal their land. Then "Whitey" have the nerve to act like they are the most moral people on the planet. GTFOH
    • jay
      @clevelandchief.. u sound mad ignorant.. slavery never affected u in a bit. white ppl been took responsibility for that shit.. black ppl get corporate jobs, hell our president is black, u know what that means? take some fuckin responsibility for yourself get a job u fuckin bum LMAO.. id like to know what ur occupation is..lemme guess by ur post 'TRAPPIN?" lol clowns
    • DIFFERENCE
      theres a difference between niggers and black people.. i happen to work with many respectable black people, dedicated there lives to school, working hard and doing right and you know where that got them.. a high paying successful job, no cop trouble, some never been arrested ever.. and then u got people like clevelandchief and crackerhater... enough said
