If you though your family was screwed up, allow me to reintroduce you to the epitome of Chicago ratchetness, Chief Keef. Recently incarcerated Chief Keef, 17, was recently photographed throwing up gangs signs with, of all people, his mother.
The pictures are from last year and feature Chief Keef, real name Keith Cozart, his mother, and cousin Fredo Santana. The trio is shown throwing up signs from “O Block” a faction of the Chicago based Black Disciples street gang.
Keef’s long-rumored gang affiliations have been fodder for the media ever since the unsolved killing of rival rapper and alleged gang member Joseph “Lil JoJo” Coleman launched a police investigation.
With recent reports of a $6 million Interscope record deal on the line and a child support lawsuit from a middle school girl, Chief Keef’s management team has more damage control to undertake after this latest fiasco since parole boards don’t take kindly to parolees kicking it with gangs.
No shots at Mama Keef but one has to wonder if passing down the gang banging legacy was the best possible maternal move. Honestly, Chief Keef has a degree of superstar success almost at his fingertips and seems almost determined to mess it up. This may be thanks to ma dukes “exceptional” parenting.
