Police Shut Down Chief Keef’s Hologram Concert

Chicago rapper Chief Keef appeared as a hologram at an Indiana music festival Saturday, but police rushed to pull the plug on his performance after only a few minutes.

This was the second attempt by Chief Keef to hold a "Stop the Violence" benefit concert to raise funds for the family of 13-month-year-old Dillan Harris, who earlier this month was hit and killed by a car thought to be involved in the fatal shooting of Windy City rapper Capo moments earlier.

The show was originally scheduled to take place at Pilsen's Redmoon Theater in Chicago on Saturday, but the venue nixed the concert at the behest of Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who said Keef's music "promotes violence" and poses "a significant public safety risk."

This didn't stop the 19-year-old rapper, though. On Wednesday, he posted an Instagram message vowing to perform at a "secret" location somewhere in the city.

Instead, Keef shocked the crowd at Craze Fest in Hammond, located about 23 miles southeast of Chicago.

The rapper only performed one song, his 2012 hit "I Don't Like," before authorities rushed the stage at around 10:25 p.m., cut the power and ordered the more than 3,000 concertgoers on-hand to leave.

Hammond police commander Pat Vicardi told the Chicago Tribune the authorities warned promoters that they would shut things down if Chief Keef performed.

Hammond police commander Pat Vicardi told the Chicago Tribune the authorities warned promoters that they would shut things down if Chief Keef performed.

"We spoke to the promoter several times, and they assured us (Chief Keef) would not be performing," Vicari said.

Chief Keef, whose real name is Keith Coazart, partnered with Hologram USA in Los Angeles to beam his performance from a Beverly Hills studio to Hammond.

The company's CEO Alki David was livid after the show was stopped.

"Shame on the mayor and police chief of Hammond for shutting down a voice that can create positive change in a community in desperate need," David said in a statement. "And for taking away money that could have gone to help the victims' families.

"This was a legal event and there was no justification to shut it down besides your glaring disregard for the first amendment right to free speech," he added.

He wasn't even there …..

It was a Hologram …….
