Chief Keef’s Home Robbed, Burglars Shoot at Police
Criminals have struck another rapper's home, this time robbing Chief Keef's San Fernando Valley, Calif. house. According to a report from TMZ, the incident occurred on Sunday night (Sept. 23) around 11:15 p.m.
Law enforcement sources say the suspects jumped over a wall at the home and threw bricks to break a window. At least one of the suspects is believed to have made it inside Chief Keef's house and made off with money.
Luckily, plainclothes police officers were near the area when the break-in occurred and were able to stop the burglary, although one suspect did fire a shot, which didn't hit anyone. Police later caught two of the suspects, while one fled in a car. The two suspects have since been booked on burglary and weapons charges.
Police later spoke to the "Part Ways" rapper, who was home during the entire incident and said he had no idea the suspects had broken into his home. Chief Keef's break-in ties in to a stream of recent burglaries at rappers' homes—Post Malone's former home was vandalized earlier this month, and Wiz Khalifa's home was also robbed in August.
Earlier this month, Keef ran into some legal problems when Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice threatened to sue the rapper for using an image of the inside of her mansion for his Mansion Musick project.
According to Giudice's attorney, James Leonard Jr., Chief Keef's use of the image is an invasion of the reality star's privacy. The lawyer argued that Guidice should be compensated financially for the project's artwork.
Keef dropped his Mansion Musick project in July. The 11-track project features a guest appearance from Playboi Carti and includes production from Nard & B, K.E. on the Track, Pierre Bourne and more.
