Chicago rapper Chief Keef has reportedly returned to his old ways after serving a short stint behind bars in a juvenile jail sentence dating back to early winter.
Reports suggest Chief enjoyed his first breath of fresh air away from the jail sometime today (March 14).
Did Chief Keef go back to his old ways of smoking "dope all day, all night" on his way home from jail? Not long after the teen rapper finished his 60-day juvenile jail sentence for violating probation, an Instagram photo was posted online that appears to show him holding his fingers to lips as if he was smoking a joint. Chief Keef, who has said he "hates being sober" and raps about smoking "dope all day, all night," got out of jail Thursday afternoon after being locked up for violating his probation on an earlier gun possession conviction.

He also announced his freedom across Twitter and thanks fans for their support.
Chief Keef, whose real name is Keith Cozart, quickly tweeted upon his release. "Feels great to be out! Thanks for all the luv y'all showed a n---- #300," the 17-year-old rapper tweeted at 1:16 p.m. Wearing a red jacket and sporting a scruffy beard, he was handed his young daughter before he got into a waiting car driven by his uncle. Not long after, the Instagram photo appeared with the 17-year-old rapper wearing the same jacket and sporting the same beard. Now that he's served his time, he's not longer to subject to the prior terms of his probation, his attorney said. (DNA Info)
