Chief Keef Comes Under Fire For Social Media Instigation
Man, even when he's hundreds of miles away Chief Keef can't seem to stay out of trouble. It's been reported this week that Keef is once again facing legal issues after he posted a series of tweets that specifically targeted several addresses to homes in Minneapolis, Minn, directing fans and followers alike to harass the owners and harm their property. Following the series of tweets, three local college art students were left homeless out of fear of staying at the home. It's believed that the 'beef' maybe tied to former residents who have long since moved out. A neighbor of the property also reported he was robbed at gun point in his driveway and believe the events are tied. Local newstation Fox 9 did a short piece on the series of events. See video below.
