Chief Keef Isn't Going To Jail For Moving! Yay!By Noisey Staff
Chief Keef is good at many things: rapping, being controversial, putting out hits. Unfortunately, he's not particularly good at not violating the terms of his probation. First the rapper—who was originally charged with possessing a gun that was fired at a cop—shot a gun on camera, and that wasn't particularly legal. While that particular court date was pushed back until the end of this month, Keef was recently charged with moving and not telling anybody and he had to appear in court to deal with that particular pickle yesterday.
To be specific, authorities made protracted, unsuccessful attempts to get in touch with Keith following the release of his (excellent) debut album Finally Rich on December 18th, so they decided to visit him at his Chicago residence and see what was up. When they got to his house, he wasn't there and the authorities then concluded he'd relocated to a house in Northbrook, an upscale village outside of Chicago. Keef's people, meanwhile, argued that the house belonged to Keef's manager and the rapper had just been there to record. Juvenile Court Judge Carl Walker ruled that there was "no admissible evidence" that Keef had moved, so he remains free to roam the earth. Apparently, that Keef is already on the town's Wikipedia page under "Notable Residents" is cheeky but doesn't count as "evidence."
Good job Chief Keef for not going to jail, tell your probation officer where you're at next time, and please keep coming out with more good music.
