Pritzker for Prez? / Chief Keef’s Grandmother Was Right / Poll: Fire Tony?
A decade ago, Chief Keef was Chicago’s No. 1 juvenile public enemy.
The other day someone posted a video of the rapper with his new Scooby-Doo Lamborghini.
Despite some minor run-ins with the law, Chief Keef hasn’t proven to be the threat to public safety that Rahm Emanuel made him. He left Chicago. The violence remained.
Atrocious. High: 93 Low: 71.
