Chief Keef arrested: Keef was arrested near Atlanta on May 20 for disorderly conduct, two months after he was released from custody in Chicago for a probation violation.

The 17-year old rapper, whose real name is Keith Cozart, was released from jail on May 21 around 3 a.m. according to the Chicago Tribune, citing a spokesman for the DeKalb County Jail.

A police report obtained by TMZ says Cozart was arrested for allegedly smoking marijuana at a hotel, which the Chicago Sun-Times reports was the “swanky Lemeridien Atlanta Perimeter hotel.”

The rapper tweeted after he got out of jail that he was really mad.
