Six weeks after prosecutors in Chicago argued a controversial video interview with Pitchfork Media violated terms of Chief Keef's parole, a judge has now ordered Pitchfork to surrender the video.  The interview shows the 17-year-old rapper, who is serving 18 months probation for pointing a gun at a police officer, holding and firing an assortment of weapons at a New York City firing range.

Pitchfork removed the video from their site in September after a rash of gun-related violence in Chicago, including one incident which involved Chief Keef gloating about the death of a rival gang member on Twitter.

The Chicago Sun-Times also reports Keef is facing additional parole violations for "failing to obtain a GED by a court deadline." Prosecutors will attempt to send the rapper to jail at a hearing on December 17, which, as luck would have it, is the day before Keef's major label debut, Finally Rich, drops.
