Are y'all fuckin' wit' us?
We honestly wouldn't have guessed that a guy who'd already been busted on weapons and heroin charges by the age of 16, occasionally giggles about murder via Twitter, and absolutely refuses to pay his child-support bills might have to bail on his commitment to play some concerts in the Sunshine State.
Obviously, you know, because another warrant for his arrest has cropped up.
Miami Monday Turn Up! Suckas

That's right ...
Despite tweeting enthusiastically about his Sunday (or, uh, Monday?) show in the 305 just two hours ago, this kid known as Sosa (government name Keith Cozart) has apparently been forced to cancel his Miami show, as well as dates in Orlando, Tampa, and Tallahassee, after a Chicago judge demanded the rapper be detained by law enforcement following a failed court appearance over $20,000 in outstanding baby-daddy fees.
According to the Florida tour promoter Dope Ent:
Chief Keef's Tour Canceled
We are sorry to announce that we are canceling our Chief Keef concerts in Orlando, Miami, Tampa, and Tallahassee due to Chief Keef's outstanding warrants in both Chicago and Miami.
We apologize to all of the fans who bought tickets, as well as everyone involved with this tour. When we booked Chief Keef, we were not aware of any warrants for his arrest. During the past few weeks, countless articles have surfaced across the internet on the top hip-hop blog sites reporting that Chief Keef has arrest warrants in Chicago and Miami. While we could postpone the events to a later date, we do not want to play anyones money and proceed with the shows only to possibly have Chief Keef arrested at or before the shows, so we are canceling the concerts indefinitely.
Refunds are available at point of purchase. Online refunds should process within 24-48 hours. If you have any questions, E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to answer.
Oh yeah, Sosa's got an arrest warrant in Miami too. For getting popped with two baggies of weed last year, then missing a meeting with the magistrate.
Just more reasons ... He ain't no fake thug.
