Rapper Chief Keef – who was an associate of Capo, the MC whose recent murder the auto that killed Harris was allegedly attempting to flee the scene of – was scheduled to perform at the concert, via hologram, due to his legal situation now preventing him from returning to his hometown in person. The reaction from the public and a Chicago priest seems to be all but supportive. Any money raised at the concert, and matched by Chief Keef and Hologram USA CEO Alki David, was intended to go to the family of Dillan Harris, 13 months, who was killed Saturday when a vehicle struck his stroller on the sidewalk in the 6300 block of South Ellis Avenue in the Woodlawn neighborhood.
“That the president of a company, on behalf of Chief Keef, would put out a statement that is entirely a lie – are you mad?”
The concept behind the concert: As Chief Keef raps on a soundstage in Beverly Hills, Calif., his hologram would appear on a stage built into a parked semitrailer. The declaration said, “Redmoon hasn’t know about packed type of the event”. “I’ve never had a conversation with Redmoon”, Pfleger said. Keef “wants to speak out against all the violence”, said Owen Phillips, a spokesman for David, the Greek billionaire owner of HologramUSA and FilmOn, who recently signed the rapper and is orchestrating the show. Keef, unfortunately, can’t travel to the city because of several outstanding warrants for his arrest, including a failure to pay child support and driving under the influence of drugs. “He just needs to be consistent”.
“Chief Keef is one of the reasons we have all this violence…Instead of having a concert…why doesn’t he Man Up and acknowledge it’s time to stop this violence and Apologize for his part in it!!!! we don’t need a concert…we need PEACE”.
Without a venue in place, David announced that the concert would be postponed, the Tribunereports.
