Chicago’s most notorious teenage rapper certainly has something to celebrate when he turns 18 on Thursday. Chief Keef’s official entrance into adulthood marks the end of court-control of most of his record contract cash. Because Chief Keef was a minor when he inked that deal, state law required Interscope Records to deposit the bulk of the rapper’s advance — about $500,000 — into a court-administered trust fund on his behalf, according to court papers. That cash had been held in so-called “blocked trust” controlled by his legal guardian — his grandmother, Margaret Carter — until the rapper, born Keith Cozart, turned 18. On Wednesday, Chief Keef’s outspoken “Granny” told Chicago she’s proud that her gangster-rap grandson — whose unexpected rise to fame was tainted by repeated run-ins with police that included a 60-day stint in juvenile jail for violating probation after pointing a gun at a cop — made it to manhood. “Oh, I’m happy. Proud. Sometimes we gotta let kids hit their own brick wall. Can’t tell these kids nothing,” Carter said. “But he’s learned a lot. He’s become much more mature than he was. He’s changed.”
