Chief Keef was arrested in Atlanta yesterday (May 20) for smoking kush in his hotel room. We’re going to assume this wasn’t a way for the rapper to make his recent alignment with Gucci Mane’s Brick Squad all the more official.
Chief Keef — the 17-year-old rap sensation — was arrested in DeKalb County, Georgia yesterday for disorderly conduct … TMZ has learned. The details surrounding the arrest are unclear. According to the booking sheet, Keef — real name Keith Cozart — was listed at 5’9″ and 160 lbs. After the arrest, Keef tweeted, “Jus Got Out Of Dekalb County jail In Atlanta Mad As f**k.” Keef is considered a prodigy — and has rapped with huge stars like 50 Cent and Wiz Khalifa.
Keef is no stranger to the law … he’s been arrested at least two times before — and even has a gun conviction under his belt. It’s been a rough year for the rapper … We broke the story, he was recently sued for child support by his middle-school-aged baby mama who claimed Keef fathered her kid — born in 2011 — when he was only 15.
Actually it hasn’t been all that bad a year for the rapper. Besides connecting with Big Guwop, Sosa was recently living it up in Paris while he was in town to record with Kanye West. There is also the rumor that he is engaged to a model named Pretty Mesha. He may want to dial back on all that lean before he sees the judge, though.
Hot 97 personality Mister Cee’s was arrest this weekend for soliciting a male prostitute.

The morning show DJ was arrested in Brooklyn, according to reports. He reportedly approached a man at Madison St. and Broadway around midnight, unaware that the man was an undercover police officer. Cee will reportedly address the arrest on the air this week.
According to NorthJersey.com, rapper Jim Jones plead guilty today in Fair Lawn Municipal Court to a disorderly conduct charge dating back to an arrest outside his home in February. Judge Steven C. Schechter imposed a fine of $841 to settle the disorderly conduct charge as well as two other active warrants that were outstanding in Jones’s name. The police report indicates that, Sgt. James Corcoran observed a parked car with a parking summons on the windshield. The car had not been moved since the snowstorm on Feb. 8. The summons was issued on Feb. 6 for a parking violation. Corcoran was in the process of having the vehicle towed because he considered it to be abandoned when Jones asked the sergeant what he was doing. After Corcoran explained, Jones agreed to remove the vehicle from the road and pay the towing fee. At that point, Corcoran learned that Jones had two active warrants. One was a $43 warrant for failure to remove snow from the sidewalk in 2011. The other was for $150 and was issued for failure to yield to an emergency vehicle from Paterson in 2010. Upon learning of the warrants, Jones became belligerent and uncooperative, according to police. Jones provided false information to Corcoran and attempted to walk away when he was being placed under arrest, so says the police report. Jim was taken into custody and was charged with obstruction and disorderly conduct. After being transported to police headquarters he was released after posting bail. He later received a motor vehicle summons for having an abandoned vehicle.
Legendary Oakland rapper Too $hort has been arrested for driving under the influence in Los Angeles. Also, the Hip-Hop OG may have tried to flee from cops, on foot.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Short — real name Todd Anthony Shaw – was pulled over in L.A. a couple hours ago for some traffic violation … and when cops approached the vehicle, they determined he appeared under the influence. Now here’s where it gets weird — when police attempted to administer a breathalyzer test, law enforcement sources tell us Too Short took off running … and tripped on the street. Police apprehended Too Short and placed him under arrest … and tossed him into a police cruiser. On the way back to the station, things got even crazier — we’re told Too Short tried to dump narcotics in the back of the cruiser. According to law enforcement sources, Too Short is currently being booked for DUI and felony narcotics possession.
A DUI and trying to dispose of drugs in a police car? We’re thinking plea deal $hot Dog, stat. Too $hort’s last album, No Trespassing, was released in February 2012. Also, late last year he dropped a collaborative album with E-40 titled History: Function & Mob Music.
