Chicago rapper Chief Keef is back in prison.

This week the Associated Press reported that Keef was back into police custody for violating his parole, and now we’ve received confirmation at the emcee will be serving 60 days in a juvenile detention center.

Complex spoke to Keef’s manager for an official response after he was sentenced.

“I think that overall we would have preferred for him not to have to sit down for a single day. Overall, I think it’s the best decision to satisfy everybody. The city of Chicago got what they want… We done been to hell and back already, so s–t ain’t nothing,” said Idris “Peeda Pan” Abdul Wahid.

Keef’s recent troubles were spawned by an ill-advised video shoot, where the music website Pitchfork placed the former felon at a gun range. A Chicago judge asked for the raw tapes to see if Keef’s parole was violated. Pitchfork denied the request when the deadline was issued December  12th.

We’ll keep you posted as more details develop.
