First let me say I appreciate what Chief Keef is attempting to do, but how come anyone isn’t stopping him? If you haven’t heard by now, this Saturday rapper Capo was shot and killed on the South side of Chicago. 77th Kingston to be exact. Capo was affiliated with Chief Keef. It gets worse. The guys who shot and killed Capo, fled the scene. In an attempt to get away, they hit and killed 13 month old Dillan Harris. Baby Dillan, along with his mom and siblings, were at the bus stop headed to 63rd Beach. 

Chief Keef will be holding a concert this Saturday to benefit the family of Dillan, and it is a terrible idea. Here are 4 reasons why:

  1. Hologram concerts are dumb. The Michael Jackson hologram scared the “Bajesus” out of me, simply because Michael is deceased and it’s just weird. I’ll pass on seeing a hologram of a dead person, but most definitely on someone’s who is alive. Why see your hologram if I can see the real you? Which leads me to my next point..
  2. Chief Keef is unable to leave Los Angeles due to his outstanding warrants. Red flag.
  3. Ever heard a Chief Keef song? Pick a song and listen to the lyrics, and while we can’t blame Chicago’s gun violence on Chief Keef, his music has most definitely influenced a generation of “savages”. Yes, this is what they refer to themselves as. Why hold a benefit concert for Baby Dillan, while your music continues to glamorize violent behavior? Please help me understand.
  4. There are other options to explore beyond a “benefit” concert that’s free and consists of him not actually being there. Chief Keef is encouraging people to donate at the concert he won’t be in attendance at. Seriously, how lucrative is that going to be? Why not simply donate money to the family and keep it moving?

As I said earlier, I can appreciate Chief Keef attempting to step up to the plate. Could this be a sign of him maturing? Could be. Or maybe a terrible publicity stunt? Who knows?

What are your thoughts on Chief Keef benefit concert for Baby Dillan?

    While it appears as if he wants to “do right,” the entire situation is quite disturbing. Thanks to my high school students I found out about Chief Keef. I haven’t listened, and don’t plan on listening to any of his music.
