Chief Keef was arrested on Thursday (January 26) following accusations from his former producer Ramsay Tha Great that the rapper assaulted him and robbed him at gunpoint in his home.
Chief Keef, whose real name is Keith Cozart, was led away from his Tarzana home in cuffs by the Los Angeles Police Department yesterday, seven days after the alleged incident occurred. Two others were taken into custody alongside Keef without incident, including fellow rapper Tadoe.
Following the alleged assault and robbery, Ramsay Tha Great posted this to his Instagram page, tagging Chief Keef in the process:

Ramsay Tha Great explained the situation even further from a hospital bed: “Chillin’ at the house, I get into an argument with Uncle Roe wife, Kelly — she called Chief Keef and tried to put him on the phone with me to tell me to calm down. I’m calm, I’m just putting my point across.”
“I go to sleep, 15 minutes later somebody opening my door, kicking down my door, talking ’bout “It’s Sosa.” I had met him before, produced a song for him, I didn’t think nothing was wrong.”
“I opened the door, he pushed me in. A nigga behind him got a Draco, AK-47-looking thing, he started hitting me in the face, Tadoe started hitting me in the face.”
“Niggas can call me rat, I ain’t never claimed to be a gangster, none of that, nothing. I just claimed to be a producer. So you can call me rat, whatever y’all wanna do. I’ll see you in court.”
Ramsay has since followed up to say that “it’s sad to see my black community condone home invasion, deadly assault, hitting me in the face with an AK-47.”
“I’m the bad guy because he chose to do that to me? Y’all generation’s fucked up.”
According to NBC Los Angeles, LAPD Capt. Brian Pratt had this to say: “It was a violent home invasion involving firearms being pointed at victims. The detectives did some really great follow up investigation. Witnesses came forward and identified who our suspects were. We knew who we were going after – we weren’t just shooting in the dark.”
