Over the weekend, a one-year-old and Melvin “Capo” Carr, a member of Chief Keef’s Glory Boyz Entertainment, was gunned down during a drive-by in Chicago. With that said, Keef, has announced that he would be throwing a free benefit concert with efforts of raising funds for both families.

Although there has been no disclosed location, the benefit concert is scheduled for July 17th. The free concert is set in place to raise funds – by donations – for the families of both Capo as well as the one-year-old struck by bullets. While some are hopeful, the “Ain’t Missing You” rapper will not physically be in attendance.

Chief Keef will appear at the benefit via hologram from Los Angeles. Surely he would love to be there, but outstanding warrants prevent him from leaving the city. Organizers do promise other special guests and will stream live on Internet TV channel FilmOn. Chief Keef and FilmOn founder Alki David, will match all proceeds made at the Chicago event. Dope.

Unfortunately, Chicago is one of those cities that is plagued with gun violence – 82 shot, and 14 killed over the Fourth of July weekend, alone. Due to the violence, and despite his love of guns, Chief Keef plans to start the Stop the Violence Now foundation to raise awareness in the escalating violence within his Chicago.
