Chief Keef Arrested in Atlanta
Chief Keef can’t catch a break when it comes to the long arm of the law. Hot on the heels of the news that the 17-year-old rapper is being sued for child support by his baby mama, he was arrested for smoking weed in DeKalb County, Ga.
Keef — that’s Keith Cozart to his mother and on all legal documents — was arrested in Atlanta on Mon. May 20, TMZ reports. According to the police report, the ‘I Don’t Like’ rhymer was busted for allegedly puffing on the green at a fancy hotel — the LeMeridien Atlanta Perimeter.
He tweeted upon his release and he was not happy about the situation, posting: “Jus Got Out Of Dekalb County jail In Atlanta Mad As f—.”
Keef may not even be old enough to vote, to register for the draft or to drink legally, but he’s already amassed quite a rap sheet, both literally and figuratively. He’s shown so much musical promise in a short period of time, having spit rhymes with massive names like 50 Cent and Wiz Khalifa. He’s also been arrested twice before and even has a gun conviction, as well.
For a teenager, he’s got some seriously adult problems. Let’s hope none of this outside drama derails or interferes with his musical career. After all, he’s got bills to pay.
