CHICAGO — A Cook County judge on Wednesday ordered Pitchfork Media to turn over video of a gun range interview that prosecutors hope will send Englewood teen rap star Chief Keef back to jail for violating his probation.
Chief Keef, whose real name is Keith Cozart, is on probation for pointing a gun at a Chicago police officer. Prosecutors argued in court that the 17-year-old high school drop out who scored a multi-million dollar record deal with Interscope Records violated his probation when he fired a gun during an interview with the music website. They also claim Chief Keef should be jailed for not getting his GED, a condition of his probation.
Chef Keef, who is living in Los Angeles, is required to appear in juvenile court on Dec. 17, the day before his first album, "Finally Rich," is scheduled to be released. At that hearing, a judge could rule on whether to revoke the rapper's probation and send him to jail.
Chief Keef's attorney declined comment.
