Waka Flocka Flame Weighs In On Chief Keef's Two-Month Imprisonment

Waka Flocka Flame comes to the defense of 17-year-old Chief Keef.

Chief Keef was served a 60-day sentence in juvenile detention yesterday following a judge's ruling that the rapper violated his probation by conducting an interview at a gun range.

Speaking with MTV News, Waka Flocka Flame said that people shouldn't criticize the young emcee but should instead reach out and lend a helping hand.

"That Chief Keef situation; that just showed me how people can just disrespect you and accept you at the same time. That's a kid at the end of the day. I feel like that's me when I first started rapping, people judged me," he said. "It's just that they judge you because they don't understand you. Instead of judging the kid and just bashing him down, why not reach an arm out and help him."

Flockavelli, who has plans to visit Keef during his incarceration, said that he could serve as an example of how he should model his career. "People like me, I could just show him the bigger picture like, 'You ain't gotta hold no gun in no interview. It's bigger than that, you're already there. Get your people out,' " Waka told MTV News today. "That goes to show people don't care about the situation they just gonna laugh at the lifestyle."

    "Nope don't think so because there is no point to do illegal" Most gang bangers don't rationalize things that way. The point to them is making as much money as they can without having to work for it.

    "Show the young ones the way to live a productive life once they make it out" You act like Waka is President of the United States lol He's just an older version of Keef. Is Russell Simmons busy? He could mentor Keef. Problem is Keef would steal a debit card before getting one of his own.

      Has Waka got into any trouble with the law since he got paid? Nope don't think so because there is no point to do illegal shit anymore. Teach him to do it the right way.

    I just gained so much respect for Waka. He knows the lifestyle and spoke the truth. When you was broke you needed to do whatever possible to get out that situation, but why still get in that type of trouble it's already a target on your back because you made it out anyway. Show the young ones the way to live a productive life once they make it out. Waka is a real.

    Waka Flaka is probably the last person Chief Keef needs as a role model lol He's got time to learn, assuming he wants too. No need for rappers to baby him like he isn't aware of what he's doing.

    I don't support artist that don't make good quality hip hop music. This dude has no place to talk because he isn't even good either, just makes the same song over & over & yells with a hyped up beat. It's so pathetic. I really can't believe people ate this garbage up. #Don'tSupportWackaorKeef #GiveMeLyricsNotGimmicks #HipHop #MCs

      what you fail to understand is that to you it's music or hip hop or whatever you wish to call it, but to them it's their LIFE! It's way deeper than rap with them, but that's something most the people that comment on this piece of shit site will never really understand. #justsayin #whiteprivelegepissesmeoff

    As ignorant of music that Waka makes he seems like a super grounded and humble dude

      Get off of 50's scrotum and enrich your feeble mind. A pet rock could see Keef's on a road to nowhere.
