Chicago rapper Chief Keef (pictured top right) plans to hold a benefit concert for a toddler who was killed by the same gunman who executed his friend, Capo, 22, a longtime member of his Glo Gang record label.
Capo, whose real name is Melvin Carr, (pictured bottom right) was shot and killed in a drive by shooting on Saturday on the city's crime-ridden south side.
30 minutes later, the gunman drove up onto a sidewalk and struck a stroller, fatally injuring one-year-old Dillan Harris, who was later pronounced dead.
Chief Keef plans to headline a free concert via hologram from his home in Los Angeles on July 17. Keef can't perform in person because of numerous outstanding warrants for his arrest in Chicago. Proceeds from the concert will benefit the toddler's family.
A spokesman for the 19-year-old rapper told The Chicago Tribune Keef “is just so heartbroken and appalled” at the news of the toddler's senseless death.
Chief Keef, whose real name is Keith Cozart, is a Chicago native who is no stranger to bloodshed. A small time rapper named Lil JoJo, who reportedly dissed Cozart, was shot and killed in a drive by shooting in October 2012.
The next day, Cozart took to his Twitter account to mock the slain teen.
Keef has a long criminal record that includes arrests for marijuana possession, weapons charges, and probation violations. He was on house arrest when his one hit record, "I Don't Like", was released in 2012. A hood rapper and gang banger named Lil Reese was also featured on the record. Lil Reese was later investigated by police for assaulting a female after a viral cell phone video showed him allegedly punching the woman at a house party.
In addition to the free concert, Keef also plans to create a non-profit foundation called Stop the Violence Now, which will work to end violent crime in Chicago.
Chicago has earned a reputation as the nation's most violent city.
65 people were shot and 10 killed during the city's worst crime wave over the 4th of July holiday.
This past weekend, hundreds mourned a 7-year-old Chicago boy who was killed by a gunman who targeted for the boy's father.
President Obama still owns a home in Chicago, where he cut his political teeth as something called a "community organizer".
Insulated within the fortified walls of the White House, Obama has successfully distanced himself from his former stomping grounds in Chicago.
He is roundly criticized for sending BILLIONS in foreign aid to other countries, while consistently ignoring calls to send federal funding to Chicago to help battle the crime epidemic.
