CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chief Keef wants to be the mayor of Chicago. Or at least that's what he says on Twitter.

"I'm running for mayor of Chicago..... Vote for me!!!" was retweeted almost 9,000 times since Chief Keef posted it just before 4 p.m. on July 27.

A Chicago concert where Chief Keef was to appear as a hologram was canceled by a theater earlier this month following outrage from activists who said Chief Keef glorifies violence and guns in his music. Another concert in Hammond was shut down on Sunday.
