Tomorrow Chief Keef will be appearing on one of 2013’s most high-profile albums in Kanye West’s Yeezus. However, information surfacing today indicates that the Chicago, Illinois rapper may not be home to enjoy the fanfare. The Chicago Tribune reports that Keef was arrested today (June 17) for what is believed to be misdemeanor trespassing. The Trib also alleges that the Glory Boyz/Interscope Records artist is currently being detained on Chicago’s South Side. Leah Starkman, Keef’s lawyer is the one who hinted towards the trespassing charge.
If true, the arrest is Chief Keef’s third in less than a month. On May 20, Keef was cuffed at Le Meridien Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia after the rapper was charged for disorderly conduct after smoking marijuana in his room. Just over one week later, Keef was arrested in Chicagoland, when his BMW SUV was stopped for doing upwards of 110 mph in a 55 zone, in addition to having too many passengers in the car on a Illinois Junior License. The latter offense brought the “Don’t Like” sensation to Skokie, Illinois this morning for a traffic court date. Moments after the ruling, Keef was reportedly arrested four blocks away by Chicago Police.
At traffic court, the 17 year-old rapper was ordered to 18 months probation, 60 hours of community service and a $531 fine. According to the Class A misdemeanor, he could have faced up to one year in prison. “I sure hope I don’t see you again, because if I do you better be ready to go to jail,” Cook County Circuit Court Judge Earl Hoffenberg told the Finally Rich rapper.
Chief Keef’s label-mate Lil Durk, currently incarcerated for weapons charges, is expected to be released later this week, on June 19.
