Chief Keef: Five Reasons He Ain't No Fake Thug

A lot of hip-hop stars claim to be hard asses when they're soft as baby poop, but that is in no way the case with ruggish Chi-Town rhymer Chief Keef. If ever there was a street-running thug, this kid known as Sosa makes the cut, mainly because of the mind-blowingly illegal stuff he's done.

Keef has been 18 for less than a month, but he's already got a police record riddled with more crimes than 50 Cent's body got bullets. When the Chief sings about shootin', lootin', and bangin', ain't nothin' false about it.

UPDATE Chief Keef's Miami show has been canceled.
