On Dec. 4, (2011), Chief Keef’s rap career changed. That afternoon, gunshots were fired from a Blue Pontiac Grand Prix in the Washington Park neighborhood of Chicago, just South of Hyde Park, and when police arrived at the scene, a suspect allegedly pointed a gun at them. The officers fired a shot back. Two young men, including Chief Keef, were apprehended; a third escaped. Rumors swirled that Keef had been killed in a shootout with police; in fact, he’d been arrested and charged with aggravated UUW, or unlawful use of a weapon. He was released sometime around New Year’s Day to live at his grandmother’s apartment for 30 days under house arrest, followed by another 30 days of home confinement.
When his house arrest ended, on Jan. 2, WorldStarHipHop—a website that hosts hip-hop-related videos for an estimated two million unique viewers per day—posted a video of a young child in a hysterical fit of excitement. Keef had just been released, and the young boy was celebrating. He bounded around the room, rapping along to “Aimed At You,” one of Chief Keef’s biggest songs. The earliest comments from the site’s largely hip-hop-oriented readership were marked by confusion: “Chief who?” “Who the fuck is cheif Keef?” Keef was an entirely unknown outside of certain corners of Chicago’s South Side, but he had been thrust suddenly onto the national stage. – gawker
