Rap artist Chief Keef defies arrest warrants by appearing via telepresence hologram... Cops pull the plug
Police shut down a rap show on Saturday while the star was appearing - by hologram - to appeal for an end to violence in hip-hop.
Police in Hammond, Indiana, pulled the plug on Craze Fest while Chief Keef was beaming in his set from a soundstage in Los Angeles. He was just finishing I Don't Like, and talking about the need to stop violence, when music was turned down, the hologram disappeared and police cleared the stage.
The show, held in a public park and attended by 2,000 people, was planned as a benefit for Chief Keef's friend Marvin Carr - a rapper known as Capo - and 13-month-old Dillan Harris, who killed on 11 July. Dillan was killed by a vehicle fleeing the scene of a shooting that killed Carr.
