CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago rapper Chief Keef has named his son after his record label in an effort to promote his latest album, according to a statement from the CEO of FilmOn Records.

"Chief Keef and his newest baby mama have agreed to name the newborn Sno FilmOn Dot Com Cozart in order to promote the release of Sosa's double album Bang 3 with FilmOn Music and MondoTunes on September 18," Alki David said in a statement Thursday.

However, David released an updated statement Thursday following an apparent paternity dispute between Chief Keef and the child's mother.

"In light of new developments disputing that Chief Keef is the father of Baby Sno, the streaming TV and music platform is retracting the right to let the mother, Lauren Woods, use the middle name FilmOn Dot Com until paternity is settled. We wish Ms. Woods all the best," David said in a written statement.

Chief Keef, whose legal name is Keith Cozart, was scheduled to perform as a hologram in Chicago last month. The concert was canceled under pressure from Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

Days later, Chief Keef's appearance via hologram at Craze Fest in Hammond was quickly shut down by police.
