Chief Keef had a pretty terrible start to his week, after he was forced to deal with four legal problems over the course of 48 hours.
Keef, who along with Frank Ocean, Kid Cudi, and several other artists, featured on Kanye West’s new album, Yeezus, was first of all handed a second paternity in a year as he say outside a Stokie courtroom.
The rapper was there dealing with a month old case after he was arrested last moth for speeding in Northern Illinois. Keef, whose real name is Keith F. Cozart, was recorded doing 110 mph in a 55 mph zone along the Edens Expressway, to which he pleaded guilty on Monday morning.
As he left the courthouse though he was arrested once again on a month-old trespassing complaint. Just a few blocks away from the courthouse officers charged him with a misdemeanor and took him into custody.
Leah Starkman, Keef’s attorney, stated on Monday evening that the 17-year-old hip hop star was released only hours later, without bail after being processed.
Starkman wasn’t impressed with the police’s action though, stating, “His management believes he’s being harassed by the police. I know that he’s on the police radar, but I don’t know if it’s harassment.”
However, this wasn’t the end to Keef’s worries. An arrest warrant was issued in Florida on Wednesday morning for him after the rapper told police last August that he had “weed” in his “right front pocket,” after he had been caught riding in a stolen red Ferrari convertible as he celebrated his 17th birthday.
Cozart was unable to appear in court in January because he was already in jail in Chicago on a different charge. A Florida judge has issued an arrest warrant which will be served if he is ever in the vicinity of Miami Beach again.
