Chief Keef is honoring his late grandmother Margaret Louise Carter.

The Chicago artist shared the news of her death on Instagram on Sunday, penning a heartfelt message alongside some shots of the two embracing, and a video of Keef gifting her a Range Rover. 

“I’m so happy i got to make you proud granny,” Keef wrote. “Never thought this would happen to me. Can’t believe my grammy just dipped on me, ima miss you too much and I’m sorry grandma I really am. I would give all this shit up just to start over because I know what to do now especially with you granny. I ain’t gonna write hella shit cause i rather tell you when ever we talk again. I’m happy me and sis gave you braggin rights! Tell my uncle Keef I said I miss him everyday, wish I could show him I did all the things he was telling me I wasn’t doing!”

Keef said he couldn’t believe she “just bounced like that” and apologized for things he put her through growing up. The cause of Carter’s death, and her age, is unclear from Keef’s post.

“I hope heaven got Facebook for you,” he wrote. “I thought you would live til atleast 98 granny! Margaret Louise Carter if I woulda knew that Christmas hug was our last hug I woulda held on longer granny. I woulda not let you go no where. Ill always remember you dont like ‘fixing to’ ima be like nike on everything im doing and ima ‘just do it’ (Oh yeah i retired my granny 11 years ago).”

As HipHopDX points out, Keef’s grandmother was always a strong supporter of his career and defended him to the Chicago Sun-Times when he was investigated in 2012 over the murder of Joseph “Lil Jojo” Coleman.

“How can he be doing all that gang stuff when he’s always home and when he’s not at home he’s out of town with me or his uncle?” she said. “And where’s this gang at? In my kitchen? In my basement? Where they at? In my refrigerator where he go all the time?” 

Carter’s home was also the filming location for some of Keef’s most iconic visuals, including those for “I Don’t Like” and “Love Sosa.”
