Keef and his daughter
By Sowmya Krishnamurthy
Sosa is officially free. Chief Keef came home yesterday after spending 90 days in a juvenile detention facility, stemming from violating his probation. Now that the teenage rap sensation is home, how will he celebrate his freedom?
Many speculate that he’ll fly to Austin to help close out SXSW at Ray-Ban’s showcase. Keef and his GBE crew are slated to perform alongside Baauer and Lunice. The timing makes sense, as Sosa just released a video for “Now It’s Over” from his upcoming Bang Pt.2 mixtape.
Expect more from Keef on the music front, possibly with other Chicago rappers. While he was locked up, fellow Chi-Town rapper King Louie sent his support. “I just wanna see the lil fool grow, I want the best for him,” King L about Sosa’s release. “You gotta understand where we come from. That little time … that don’t overweigh the positive that went on, so I just go with the positive and don’t really think about the negative.”
Keef may end up forgoing career things for now and just focus on hanging with his family. The Chicago Tribune reports that one of the first things Keef did upon release was embrace his baby daughter. “We wove each other,” he shared on Instagram with a photo of him holding his daughter.
