Chief Keef Released From Jail, Set To Make SXSW Appearance

Chicago rapper was all smiles leaving a Cook County juvenile center after completing a 60-day sentence.

Chief Keef may sport a mean scowl in his music videos, but the teenage rapper was all smiles on Thursday when he was released from Cook County Juvenile Justice Center after completing a 60-day sentence for violating his probation.

The Finally Rich rapper, whose real name is Keith Cozart, was detained in January after a judge ruled that a June 2012 video interview where Keef was seen handling firearms in a gun range was a direct violation of his 18-month probation, which he was handed for pointing a gun at a police officer. About two dozen family and friends came to greet the rapper upon his release, according to The Chicago Tribune.
