Chief Keef to Hold Benefit Concert for Toddler Killed By Car Involved in Capo’s Shooting
Chief Keef is holding a tribute concert in memoriam of a toddler who was killed by a car leaving the scene of Capo's shooting in Chicago Saturday (July 11).
Capo, whose real name is Marvin Carr, died after being shot in the 7700 block of South Kingston Avenue in Chicago, The Chicago Tribune reports. About 30 minutes later, the car struck one-year-old Dillan Harris who was in a stroller on the sidewalk in the 6300 block of South Ellis Avenue, about three miles away from the shooting. Harris was later pronounced dead.
A spokesperson for Chief Keef said that he “is just so heartbroken and appalled” by both Capo and the toddler's passing and he just wants to help the Harris family in the "out of control situation." The first step in helping the family is throwing the concert, which will be a free event, according to Billboard. Attendees are encouraged to make a donation to Dillan's family should they choose to attend. The Finally Rich rapper will perform via hologram from a soundstage in Beverly Hills, Calif. Sosa currently lives in the L.A. area, but reportedly cannot be in Chi-town for the concert due to outstanding warrants.
This is just one way that Keef is giving back to his hometown. He recently formed a Stop the Violence Now Foundation, whose goal is to combat crime in Chicago. Chief's cousin Mario Hess, also known as the rapper Big Glo, was fatally shot in April of last year.
