Chief Keef Evicted From Rented Mansion

Chief Keef is looking for a new place to lay his head after he was evicted from his rented mansion in Highland Park, Ill. Tuesday (June 11), the Chicago Tribune reports.

Movers were seen at the home loading Keef's belongings onto a truck while deputies oversaw the process. 

As of March, the teenager, whose birth name is Keith Cozart, was $30,000 behind on his rent and had made arrangements to pay the balance by April 20. Court records state that the final eviction paperwork was filed in May. The landlord previously sued Sosa to recoup the unpaid rent.  

Keef is already "Lookin for Houses" according to the video he posted on Instagram yesterday.

His time in the neighborhood, which is approximately 23 miles north of Chicago, was troublesome. Neighbors have complained about loud noises and heavy traffic around the area and were reportedly disturbed by an Instagram photo of Keef holding a large firearm inside the home. "It's been like a parade of people coming and going since they moved in. … It's like a clubhouse," one neighbor told the Tribune back in March. "We've all been calling the police and it's been a total nightmare. And they've completely destroyed their lawn by driving their ATVs back and forth."

Another neighbor, Ken Cooper, described the experience of living near Keef and crew as "horrible" adding, "They were certainly not good tenants."

The "F--k Rehab" rapper tends to get a lot of attention for his criminal behavior versus his music. Last November, Keef was sentenced to 90 days rehab for weed addiction. He's been busted on DUI, child support issues and probation violation and has also been sued several times by various collectors, including a Cleveland breast cancer charity that claims he was paid for a concert and pulled out at the last minute.
