Just under two weeks ago, Chief Keef released his debut album Finally Rich and keeping with the theme of the project has moved into a big house in upscale Northbrook according to law enforcement sources. The only problem is that he failed to notify his probation officer about his change of address. Now Chief Keef real name Keith Cozart has been ordered back to court Wednesday for an alleged probation violation.
The 17-year-old southside Chicago MC was documented as living in south suburban Dolton with his uncle when he wasn’t out of town, sources said. On Monday, authorities started looking to have Cozart jailed for the alleged violation. In the months prior a judge had allowed Keef to travel to California to work on his album, which was released on December 18th.
Cozart was already scheduled to appear in court in late January for a separate probation violation. He appeared in an online Pitchfork Media video that has since been recanted holding a gun at a firing range in New York. Under the terms of his probation, he was ordered not to be near firearms.
Chief Keef has been in the headlines since Chicago Police detectives began their investigation on his connections to Joseph “Lil JoJo” Coleman, a Chicago based teen rapper who was shot to death in September.
Cozart has ties to the Black Disciples street gang in Englewood, while Coleman was linked to the Gangster Disciples. Police are currently investigating whether or not Coleman’s killing was a result of a conflict between the gangs.
