Policeman in Chicago, Illinois are seeking to issue citations to individuals who are hanging up posters advertising Chief Keef's Finally Rich around his Englewood neighborhood.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, people have been putting up advertisements for the young rapper's debut, releasing December 18th. Chicago Police union Vice President Daniel Gorman described the acts as a "smack in the face" to police officers.
“It seems as if he’s being hailed a hero,” he said. “But it’s a smack in the face to the police officers who are serving the citizens of those communities.”
Chicago Police Commander Kevin Ryan noted that this isn't a personal attack on Keef, who is currently on probation for pointing a gun at a policeman. "We used to do this when I was commander in [a downtown] district," he explained.
Keef's manager, Rovan “Dro” Manuel, disagreed, stating that this is in fact an issue with the rapper. "I don’t think it’s fair,” he said. “If they [don’t] do that with Britney Spears, Madonna, the Goo Goo Dolls, why do they have to do that to us?
"I think they’re targeting Chief Keef a little bit for more reasons than one,” he continued. “He’s a spokesperson for Englewood, they had problems way before Chief Keef. When something bad happens they want to put it all on him."
