The rapper known as chief Keef is now a ward of the state. The effeminate rapper whose real name is Keith Cozart, was taken into custody today for violating his probation. Cozart, 17, was on probation for pointing a gun at Chicago police officers in January 2012.
Judge Carl Anthony Walker found that Cozart demonstrated a “willful disregard” of the court. He’s being held until his sentencing hearing on Thursday.
A writer for Ebony.com took Russell Simmons to task for his “half-hearted” blog post condemning little known rapper Lil Reese for assaulting a woman. The writer, Sil Lai Abrams, is a relationship expert and a victim of domestic abuse herself. Lil Reese’s violent assault on high school graduate Tiairah Marie was captured on a cell phone video that went viral online.
Reese later apologized for his earlier defiant response to the public outrage — but only after radio programmers and DJs threatened to boycott his music.
Russell Simmons, who was criticized for approving a post on Global Grind written by a black woman defending Reese’s behavior, wrote a tweet indicating he had no editorial control over his own blog.
“I deplore the violence one editor said boycott him the other said team them I said nothing,” Simmons tweeted on Oct. 29. He later deleted his tweet.
Last week a video surfaced online showing Chicago rapper Lil Reese and his GBE associates beating up a woman after barging their way inside her residence.
The year old video surfaced on World Star Hip Hop and instantly went viral, sparking outrage from social networking users who are normally immune to such violence against females.
Over the weekend, real men in Hip Hop stood up to denounce Reese’s girlish behavior. Atlanta “goons” called out Lil Reese for fighting a woman. And HOT 97 PD called Lil Reese a “b*tch” for “knuckling up with a girl.”
Watch the videos after the break.
The young lady who was jumped by rapper/gang banger Lil Reese in a videotaped beat down released a statement via her Facebook page yesterday. Confirming that the assault occurred last year, the woman, whose Facebook username is Self Made Prodigy, described being assaulted by Reese (pictured above) and his sister.

Last month, 18-year-old rapper Lil Jojo, real name Joseph Coleman, was shot and killed as he rode his bicycle on the South side of Chicago.
The next day, another little known Chicago rapper named “Chief Keef” took to his Twitter page to mock the slain rapper’s passing.
“It’s sad cus Jojo wanted to be just like us #LMAO” he wrote in a tweet.
Police say Lil Jojo (pictured left) was linked to the Gangster Disciples street gang, which put him in the crosshairs of Chief Keef and his gang.
Lil Jojo’s death was believed to be the culmination of a running dispute between Coleman, Chief Keef and a gang banger/rapper named Lil Reese (pictured above).
