South side rapper Chief Keef will remain free despite allegations he once again violated  his probation.

17-year old Keith Cozart, also known as “Chief Keef”, was accused of this violation after reportedly purchasing and living in a home in north suburban Northbrook without notifying authorities.

Cozart’s attorneys argued Wednesday the rapper has spent much time recording at his manager’s home/studio in Northbrook.

Juvenile Court Judge Carl Anthony Walker said he had not been presented “any credible evidence” that the teen had moved from his south suburban Dolton home.

The rapper is on probation after a juvenile conviction for pointing a gun at a police office.

Prosecutors also claim Cozart violated his probation after doing an interview at a gun range in New York allegedly showing Cozart holding a rifle.  The next hearing for that allegation is set for January 28, 2013.
