Chief Keef Accuses Hotel Staff Of Racism In Last Week's Arrest

UPDATE: Chief Keef accounts what happened last week, and believes a staff member at Le Merdien Hotel in Atlanta was deliberately racist. That security guard explains his side of the story.

Glory Boyz/Interscope Records artist Chief Keef was just released from an extended stay at a juvenile detention center in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois earlier this spring. Reports from yesterday (May 20) indicate that Keef was again in trouble with the law.

Chief Keef was reportedly arrested for disorderly conduct outside of Atlanta, Georgia yesterday, according to TMZ.com. Their reports indicate that the incident stemmed from Keef smoking marijuana at a hotel in the city. After he was apprehended, Keef was taken to DeKalb County Jail. The jail is familiar to his 1017 Glo Gang partner Gucci Mane, who has been held there multiple times over the last five years.

Keef has already tweeted that he has been released from custody early this morning (May 21). No court dates have been announced.

(May 21)

UPDATE: Following Chief Keef's May 20 arrest in Atlanta, Georgia and release the day after, the Glory Boyz Entertainment/Interscope Records artist contacted TMZ to further explain his side of the story. The Chicago, Illinois rapper blames a staff-member at Le Meridien Hotel.

In a series of statements that may have been text messages, Keef told TMZ what happened. They are compiled in quote-form here: "So me and my homie Tray Savage was in the hotel room chillin' when some fat-ass security guard started knocking on the door talking about he needed to fix a water leak. So his ass walked in and started looking around at us and immediately gave me the racist look then started talking shit to me. I told him, 'I thought you wanted to fix a water leak?' Which he obviously lied 'cause there was no water leaking. Then he immediately started talking shit to us. He told me that he was going to call the police on me so I called him a bitch. He kept saying how the police about to be on their way to lock me up so I blew smoke in his face and pulled out 30 racks and said I got the bond money—'there is more where this come from.'"

Keef added that the man he believes is a security guard, was "racist from the moment he walked in the room. The way he looked at us was a racist look."

The security guard, who did not release his name, contacted TMZ. Explaining his side of the story, he claimed, "I was protecting my job. If I hadn't called the police on him, and somebody else came behind me and found that out, knowing that I was in that room, my job would be gone." Asked about why he specified that Keef had dread-locks in his call to police, the man stated, "I was just givin' a description. The company I work for, we have certain protocols for things like that. Giving a description is one of those things." He also claimed, "it's illegal," as to his views on marijuana used by hotel guests. The interview is below:

    CHIEF KEEF IS A SHAME FOR CHI-TOWN. IT WAS KNOWN FOR A GOOD AND CONSCIOUS RAPPERS LIKE LUPE FIASCO, KANYE WEST OR COMMON. HE IS A BAD ROLE MODEL FOR YOUNG PEOPLE, THIS JUST PROVES IT. THE SECURITY GUY WAS A DICK AS WELL BUT WHAT THE HELL? HOW CAN CHIEF KEEF CONSIDER SOMEONE TO BE A RACIST JUST BY THE WAY HE LOOKED? AT THE SAME TIME I CAN'T BE MAD AT HIM, IT'S HIS JOB AND CHIEF KEEF IS STUPID NOT EVEN SNOOP SMOKES WEED IN THE HOTEL ROOM LOL. HIS LAZY ASS IS TO TIRED TO GO SMOKE ON BALCONY OR WHAT.

      You don't know. Security guards often act as a liaison between the hotel and the law. If other hotel guests complained about the weed they would be like wtf man why ain't you doing your job we got niggas do drugs in our hotel that shit dont fly.

  • flower power

    Those hotel staff were fucking racist. They are just hating on Chief Keef because they know he's legendary newcomer and they're just trying to kill his shine. Fucking haters I call them. Keef just wants to smoke a little. It's how he gets inspiration to make classic records, or as 50 Cent says, "It gets him in the actual creative space since he's a product of his actual environment." I hope those hotel staff get fired, snitching to TMZ of all people over some bullshit. I hope Keef files and gets a nice fat check out of them. That'll show who's boss. LOVE SOSA!

      Classic records? legendary newcomer? FYI smoking weed is still not legal in a lot of states and when you staying in a hotel you gotta follow the fucking rules. If he was a real baller he would have been in the penthouse where they wouldn't have been able to fuck with him No racism here. Just a nigger crying racist cause he got caught breaking the law and might go back to jail

  • Chief Keef is Real your Fake

    How is crying about not seeing your daughter for 60 days being pussy. Thats the only thing these hater niggas can knock off cheef keef for because everything else proves hes certified gangster. He even shot at cops and people glorify tupac as a gangster for the same shit even though he was a ballerina turned thug. So gangsters don't cry that means gangsters cant be humans cus all humans cry its a part of human nature you hatin ass internet nerds that never lived that hood life like keef.

      sorry but it's only 60 days. If he's so worried about not being able to see his daughter maybe he should stop breaking the fucking law. Stop taking pictures and videos with guns. Stop laughing at kids getting murdered. Stop taking pictures of your underage ass getting head. Stop impregnating middle school girls. Stop acting tough when you not built like that. Prison is part of that life.

      He didnt shoot at cops. He pointed his gun. Which proves nothing other than he is a fucking retard. He extremely lucky the cops didnt clap his ass right then and there.

    This kid is retarded. That man was doing his fucking job. That does not make him a racist. It just so happens that a black kid was BREAKING THE LAW.
