Chief Keef was arrested in Atlanta yesterday (May 20) for smoking kush in his hotel room. We’re going to assume this wasn’t a way for the rapper to make his recent alignment with Gucci Mane’s Brick Squad all the more official.
Chief Keef — the 17-year-old rap sensation — was arrested in DeKalb County, Georgia yesterday for disorderly conduct … TMZ has learned.
The details surrounding the arrest are unclear.
According to the booking sheet, Keef — real name Keith Cozart — was listed at 5’9″ and 160 lbs.
After the arrest, Keef tweeted, “Jus Got Out Of Dekalb County jail In Atlanta Mad As f**k.”
Keef is considered a prodigy — and has rapped with huge stars like 50 Cent and Wiz Khalifa.
Keef is no stranger to the law … he’s been arrested at least two times before — and even has a gun conviction under his belt.
It’s been a rough year for the rapper … We broke the story, he was recently sued for child support by his middle-school-aged baby mama who claimed Keef fathered her kid — born in 2011 — when he was only 15.
Actually it hasn’t been all that bad a year for the rapper. Besides connecting with Big Guwop, Sosa was recently living it up in Paris while he was in town to record with Kanye West. There is also the rumor that he is engaged to a model named Pretty Mesha. He may want to dial back on all that lean before he sees the judge, though.
Check out Keef’s mugshot, which he shared on Instagram, on the flip.
