The rapper is not just sitting around twiddling his thumbs after he was sentenced to 60 days at the Illinois Youth Center in St. Charles. Instead, he’s rallying fans to support him while he’s behind bars!
South Side rapper Chief Keef is making good use of his time at the Illinois juvenile detention center, after he was sentenced to a 60-day sentence on Jan. 17 following his probation violation. The 17-year-old is now advertising “Free Sosa” T-shirts through his Twitter, and they are proving so popular the online store crashed! “Sosa” is Chief Keef’s nickname and a lyric in his song “Love Sosa”, and these T-shirts are proving popular with fans who wish to have him released early from his detainment.
Chief Keef Tweets About ‘Free Sosa’ T Shirts
Chief Keef (real name: Keith Cozart) was arrested on Jan. 15, when a judge ruled that a video of him shooting a semiautomatic rifle at a New York gun range violated his probation from a 2011 gun conviction. The young rapper began his detainment immediately after his hearing on Jan. 17, and now he is rebelling through fashion!
Chief Keef tweeted (well, one of his friends tweeted for him) “Free Sosaaaa
@keyz15_4 @gbe_ballout Des Boy’s Ain’t Makin No Noise #GBE BABY” on Jan. 20, with a picture of his friends wearing the white T-shirts with his face on them, and the caption “Free Sosa.”
He also tweeted “
#FREESOSA SHIRTS GET THEM AT http://GBE300.COM”, and it looks like the T-shirts are popular! A couple of hours after first tweeting about the shirts he said: “I’m sorry about the store being down Because of the amount of traffic Keep trying until you have one on your back GBE.”
It’s great to see Keith is doing something productive and creative while he serves his time!
