Description

Chicago has banned rapper Chief Keef, because of his criminal record. Chief Keef wanted to perform in the city to honor the death of another rapper and boy killed in gang violence. He performed from Beverly Hills but his hologram was in Chicago. The police shut down the concert. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian (The Point) hosts of The Young Turks discuss. Does Rahm Emanuel have the right to shutdown the concert? Does this violate free speech? Let us know in the comments below.

And apparently, that public safety concern also covers virtual performances. Police in Hammond, Indiana shut down a surprise holographic Keef concert (technically, a Pepper's Ghost trick) this weekend despite the flesh-and-bone star being 2,000 miles away in Beverly Hills, California. Officials had warned that they would clamp down if they saw Keef play, but a festival promoter argues that they didn't have a "real reason" why a hologram wasn't allowed -- especially since the musician was fundraising for victims of violence." *** Get The Young Turks​ Mobile App Today!
