Chief Keef must serve two months for violating his probation stemming from a firearm incident.
Chief Keef has been sentenced to two months at Illinois Youth Center in St. Charles, Illinois for violating probation.
According to Complex, the rapper, whose real name is Keith Cozart, will serve a two-month sentence at the center after he was convicted on Tuesday. The news comes courtesy of management member Idris "Peeda Pan" Abdul Wahid.
Keef was served his sentence after prosecutors claimed that he violated his probation by conducting an interview at a gun range. They also targeted the 17-year-old for failing to complete his GED in time to meet a court order.
UPDATE:Chicago Sun-Times reports that Keef pleaded guilty with Judge Carl Anthony Walker in order him to not be sentenced to juvenile detention. He broke into tears several times, but the judge did not grant clemency for his "blatant violations of the court's order."
Following the sentencing, his manager said that Keef would release a new single today.
