Chief Keef’s benefit concert ran into complications during the planning process but it seems like problems did not stop there. According to the Tribune, it didn’t take long before police interrupted the free performance. Keef originally hosted this concert in honor of toddler, Dillon Cooper, who was killed as a result of two suspects fleeing a shooting. However, due to an amount of “outstanding warrants” the rapper had no choice but to appear as a hologram.
Keef had tried his best to keep the location of his benefit concert a secret, he had even attempted to misdirect authorities by tweeting the event will take place at the Lincoln Hall in Chicago. However, the police someone were informed that the rapper along with other performers really were gathered at Crazefest in Hammond, Indiana.
Other performers that appeared at the concert were Riff Raff, Tink, and Lil Bibby but the only one who seemed to be interrupted was Keef. It’s estimated that at around 10:25am police arrived on the scene, asking the audience to leave. Keef’s hologram only managed to get through “Don’t Like,” before the music was shut down.
Though the concert was cut short, the rapper did manage to get his message across. “Stop the violence, stop the killing, stop the nonsense. Let the kids grow up.”
