Chief Keef

Sued For Screwing Over Cancer Charity

Chief Keef screwed over breast cancer patients by bailing out of a Cleveland charity concert hours before he was supposed to go on stage ... according to a lawsuit obtained by TMZ.

In court docs, Kim Productions claims it paid Keef a $15K deposit ... to perform at the RapCure cancer benefit last June. The balance -- $10K -- was supposed to be paid at the event.

Kim Prods. claims the day before the event, Keef demanded a $2,500 advance to cover travel expenses. Kim says the money was wired ... and Keef's agent claimed Keef was on his way.

According to the lawsuit ... Keef failed to show up on time ... so the concert was cancelled and ticket holders got their money back ... which meant the charity ended up in the red.

The company is suing for $26K -- the money it paid to Keef plus the amount spent on the theater, lights, equipment, advertising and the refunded tickets.

It also includes an $88 charge for an order of chicken wings ... called in by someone on Keef's tour bus.

I was at this concert. I drove from Chicago to Cleveland for this. Completely on the promoters. Sosa was scheduled to go on at 9, stood around until 1am before they told us he wasn't coming. Spent $40 on a ticket and $50 on a backstage pass and got refunded $20. RapCure is a joke of a charity and I'm convinced they're running a scam. I'm not saying Sosa is the most reliable person ever but there's more to this story than is being told here.

He's not the first to do this and won't be the last. What happened to khole and Lamar stealing from a charity? Did that get swept under the rug?

What a creep. He better watch out. If karma is real he could end up getting cancer. With all of the drugs he does you know something will happen to him.

This punk reminds me of Akon because you NEVER hear there names without trouble coming right after. Both are just bad news and trouble makers.

He's lazy and a thief--and he'll always be a thief because he's lazy. His lazy ass would be in prison by now . It was all about the timing. He just happened to stumbled over an era where the "music" industry was exploiting blacks who would be disgusting rhyming words---and degenerates loved it.

They made their first mistake when they were assuming anyone would want to hear him.

Dudes an 18 year old gangbanger, I'm not sure why charities were hiring him, honestly.

Dude has a lengthy criminal record at EIGHTEEN. I often pick up for rappers on TMZ, as I'm a fan of the genre but this guy needs to grow up.

At 15 he was arrested for heroin manufacturing, sentenced to house arrest.

Less than a year later, he flashed a fully loaded handgun at a police officer, was charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a firearm on a police officer and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon. He was also given a misdemeanor charge for resisting arrest.

In 2012, he was being investigated over a death of a local rival, with the victims mother claiming that Keef paid someone to kill her son.

Again in 2012, he had an interview at a shoot range where he was firing guns, was arrested for that due to it being a parole violation.

Add on a few more drug test failings, a bit longer in juvie, speeding tickets, and 2 or more failed showings... I cant imagine being 18 years old and being in this much trouble.

Isnt that an oxymoron? I thought "Chief Keef" was another word for ear cancer anyways.
