Chief Keef Jailed: Chicago Rapper Heads To Slammer For Violating Parole

Of the many things that displease "I Don't Like" rapper Chief Keef, getting thrown into lockup probably tops the list.

On Tuesday, Chief Keef, whose real name is Keith Cozart, headed to jail following a Chicago Juvenile Court judge's ruling the 17-year-old had violated terms of his parole, reports DNAinfo Chicago.

In December, BET reported Judge Carl Anthony ruled against music website Pitchfork Media saying it could not withhold from prosecutors its video interview from last summer showing Cozart at a New York gun range. Pitchfork, formerly based in Chicago, later apologized for the video and eventually pulled it from the site.

Chief Keef was serving 18 months of probation after pointing a gun at a Chicago police officer in 2011, reports the Tribune. In his Tuesday ruling, Walker determined the rap star's firearm posing to be a probation violation.

According to DNAinfo, the judge called Cozart's participation in the video—which his lawyer argued was merely for promotional purposes—a "clear disregard for the court's authority."

The rapper will appear before the judge for sentencing Thursday.
