Waka Flocka has some advice for Chief Keef, and is sympathetic towards the rapper's recent problems with the law.
We've gotten a lot of news on Chief Keef lately, as it was revealed yesterday that the 17-year-old Chicago native was sentenced to 60 days at theÂ Illinois Youth Center in St. Charles, IllÂ for violating his probation.
In the end, Chief Keef did not seem to take the sentence well, as it is reported that he begged for one more chance with the judge. However, what's done is done, and now a fellow ratchet rapper, Waka Flocka, has weighed in on Keef's misfortune and where he went wrong.
Waka gives some advice to the young'n,Â "People like me, I could just show him the bigger picture like, 'You ain't gotta hold no gun in no interview. It's bigger than that, you're already there. Get your people out,' " Waka told MTV News. "That goes to show people don't care about the situation they just gonna laugh at the lifestyle."
The Brick Squad rapper continued,Â "That Chief Keef situation; that just showed me how people can just disrespect you and accept you at the same time. That's a kid at the end of the day. I feel like that's me when I first started rapping, people judged me.Â It's just that they judge you because they don't understand you. Instead of judging the kid and just bashing him down, why not reach an arm out and help him."
"If your kids listen to a specific style of music, you should reach an arm out to a kid, not just say 'Yo, he got 60 days for holdin' a gun,' "Â Waka proposed. "That kid he's from a neighborhood where being 21 is like getting a diploma."
Waka said that he recently spoke to Keef and plans to visit the rapper while he's at the Youth Center.
