The legal woes of embattled rapper Chief Keef continue — this time in suburban Atlanta, where he was charged Monday with disorderly conduct.
Early Tuesday the 17-year-old rapper posted a mugshot of himself on Instagram and announced on Twitter that he “Jus Got Out” of jail in DeKalb County, Ga.
Chief Keef, whose real name is Keith Cozart, was arrested in Dunwoody, Ga., a suburb north of Atlanta, records indicate. He was booked into jail Monday afternoon just after 4:30 p.m. and was released about 11 hours later at 3:41 a.m., according to jail records.
Dunwoody police could not immediately comment on the nature of Cozart’s arrest.
Dennis Berkson, Cozart’s Chicago lawyer, said he didn’t know anything about the arrest Tuesday morning.
Chief Keef made his much-anticipated debut with Interscope records in December with the album “Finally Rich.” The rapper was locked up in January for wielding a gun in a music video — a violation of his probation on an earlier gun conviction for pointing a weapon at the police.
He gained notoriety last year for a gloating tweet sent from his account after rival Chicago rapper Joseph “Lil Jojo” Coleman was shot to death in the Englewood neighborhood on the South Side.
