Chief Keef Arrested for Marijuana Possession
Chief Keef is all too familiar with a jail cell. Just two months ago, the "Love Sosa" rapper was in a juvenile detention facility and yesterday, he was arrested in Georgia, placing him back behind bars.
The Chicago native was apparently smoking weed inside the LeMeridien Atlanta Perimeter hotel on Monday (May 20) when hotel security caught wind of the illegal activity. According to Dunwoody, Ga., police, security "observed smoke and a smell of marijuana from a room."
He was subsequently taken into police custody but did not resist arrest as was previously reported by other news outlets.
Born Keith Cozart, Keef announced his arrest via Twitter, once he was released from jail. "Jus Got Out Of Dekalb County jail In Atlanta Mad As f---," he wrote. The 17-year-old also placed his mugshot on his Instagram page.
In March, the rhymer, who recentlyjoined forces with Gucci Mane's Brick Squad movement, completed a 60-day sentence in connection with a weapons charge conviction. In January, he was originally set to receive 18 months probation for pointing a gun at Chicago cops. However, he was sent to juvenile detention after he violated the terms of his probation by shooting a gun during a Pitchfork video interview last year.
On the music front, Keef recently returned to the U.S., after recording new music with Kanye West in Paris. The collaboration will apparently find its way onto Yeezy's forthcoming "Yeezus" LP, due June 18.
