Chief Keef Jailed For Missed Child Support Payments, Tests Positive for Marijuana
Chief Keef announced on Instagram that he’s giving himself up to serve his second jail term this year.
His latest stint behind bars results from blowing off a child support hearing on Sept. 5. Chief Keef was supposed to explain why he didn’t pay approximated $20,000 in child support, according to TMZ.
“Getting my Self ready To Get Locked Up ! Love Everybody That Rocks With The So & Da Glo,” Chief Keef said in an Instagram message, which is embedded below.
Keef revealed in the caption of a pumpkin-making video post that he’s expected to be free on Oct. 25 for what was originally a 10-day stay. That’s not going to be the case,though. The rapper tested positive for marijuana because of random drug testing ensuing from a speeding ticket, resulting in a 20-day jail sentence. In May, he clocked in at 110 mph in his BMW at Chicago’s Edens Expressway. He was hit with an 18-month probation sentence as a result.
He’s previously served 60 days in a juvenile detention center in January for a probation violation stemming from a Pitchfork interview at a gun range.
Chief Keef released the ‘Almighty So’ mixtape, the follow-up to ‘Bang Pt. 2,’ on Oct. 12.
