Common offers Chief Keef support and advice on how to move past his legal issues.
Rapper/actor CommonÂ called in to Chicago's Tony Sculfield & The Morning RiotÂ on WGCIÂ to promote his latestÂ movie, LUV. While on the air, the "Blue Sky" emceeÂ gave a few words of advice to fellow Chicagoan andÂ rapper Chief Keef, who was recently sentenced to 60 days in juvenile detentionÂ for parole violation.
âRight now itâs about making choices," he said. âAm I gonna go do this, which is gonna turn out to be good for me and I can get all of the things I want in life if I make these good choicesâ¦ or let my influences be like well I'ma do this and get in some trouble and not think about the consequences... I hope he continues to grow and gets his lessonsâ¦ Iâm here to support him.â
Common also touched on the uptick in shootings and murderÂ that has plagued his hometown and what can be done to stem the violence that's caused atÂ the hands of the youth.
âWe definitely need characters that care and can come back to the shorties and say weâre gonna give you the love you need. Not just saying you shouldnât be on the streets, but saying if you have a dream weâre going to help you get to that dream."
