As Chief Keef was released from juvenile detention Thursday after serving 60 days in custody, police said they were concerned about a post on his Facebook page that taunts a street gang over a 2011 murder.
The rapper walked out of Cook County Juvenile Court on the West Side after a brief court hearing, without commenting. A black SUV was waiting for him and briefly led reporters on a chase, as it changed locations on where it was parking to pick him up.
A man left the building with a bag apparently holding the rapper's possessions and dubbed them "his lyrics."
Another man who took the bag announced the contents were worth "about $7 million."
The rapper was released Thursday with no court restrictions, officials said.
He made his much-anticipated debut with Interscope records in December with the album "Finally Rich." The rapper, whose real name is Keith Cozart, was locked up in January for wielding a gun in a music video - a violation of his probation on an earlier gun conviction for pointing a weapon at the police.
He gained notoriety earlier in the year for a gloating tweet sent from his account after rival Chicago rapper Joseph "Lil Jojo" Coleman was shot to death in the Englewood neighborhood on the South Side.
Now police are concerned about a post Thursday morning on the rapper's Facebook page saying: "F--- a TOOKA gang!!! BITCH IM 3 Hunna."
Sources said Tooka was the nickname of Shondale Gregory, 15-year-old shot to death at a bus stop at 63rd and St. Lawrence on Jan. 12, 2011 in the Woodlawn neighborhood on the South Side.
Gregory was a member of a faction of the Gangster Disciples called the St. Lawrence Boys, which renamed itself the Tooka Gang after Gregory was killed, law enforcement sources said.
Chief Keef and his entourage are affiliated with Lamron, a faction of the rival Black Disciples gang.
"He's heating things up before he's even out," one police source said of the Facebook post.
One person responded to the post: "Glad you're out."
But other commenters wrote "BDK," which means Black Disciples Killer - a threat to the Lamron faction of the Black Disciples.
This morning's postings on Chief Keef's Facebook site also included "bitch im finally free" and "jail don't stop real n------."
They were in stark contrast to a pastor's plans to baptize the 17-year-old rapper.
The Rev. Corey Brooks, known as the "rooftop pastor," told the Chicago Sun-Times last month that he planned to baptize Chief Keef after he was released from juvenile detention.
"He is an entertainer, that is how he sees himself. But at the same time, he has a God-consciousness. He is not some terror who is wreaking havoc," Brooks told the newspaper.
