Last weekend, a hologram of Chief Keef briefly entertained an Indiana crowd before being shut off by police. The show was actually a benefit concert for the families of Keef's friend Capo, who was gunned down earlier this month; and Dillan Harris, a child who was tragically killed in the chaos after the shooting. Fans were given a full show to enjoy before the appearance of 3-D Keef. Hometown favs Tink and Lil Bibby, showed off for the crowd, while Jacquees and Riff Raff performed as well.
On shutting down the show, the major of Hammond, Thomas M. McDermott Jr. told The New York Times, "Gang violence in Chicago is the reality right now, and I’m not going to invite someone that might be a threat to public safety.”
But according to photographer Ryan Lowry, who managed to capture the action that night, the show was anything but out of hand. "It was fun and everyone was totally happy," he told The FADER. "Just a fun summer party show." Even after Keef's hologram went away, Lowry says everyone was "upset," but clarifies that they were not "angry upset."
Now that a huge multi-city concert for the hologram now may not happen it's a good thing this moment in time was captured.
