Biography

Early life

Keith Cozart was born in Chicago, Illinois.[2] He attended T.g. Terry Elementary School and later W.H. Adamson High School on the city’s South Side.

Music career

In an interview conducted by the staff in charge of the “Back & Forth” series, Cozart was revealed to be inflicted with Asperger syndrome, explaining the difficulty for him to engage in constant dialogue with his fellow interlocutor.[4]While under house arrest for a previous weapons charge, Cozart posted several videos to his YouTube account. The attention he received grew in the short time between the release of several mixtapes and several of music videos, including “Bang”, “3Hunna” and “I Don’t Like”.[5] After two locally successful mixtapes, “I Don’t Like” became a local hit in Chicago. It also caught fellow Chicago rapper Kanye West’s attention, and West organized a remix of the song along with rappers Pusha T, Jadakiss and Big Sean.[6] Finally Rich, Keef’s third mixtape, is set to be released sometime in 2012. Featured guests include rappers Waka Flocka Flame, Young Jeezy, Yo Gotti and fellow members of Glory Boyz Entertainment.[7] On July 7, 2012, it was announced that Chief Keef would be performing at the 2012 Lollapalooza music festival.[8

Legal issues

In December 2011, Cozart was arrested on a weapons charge (aggravated unlawful use of a weapon) and put under house arrest at his grandmother’s home.[9]

On September 5, 2012, Chicago Police disclosed to the Sun Times that Cozart is being investigated for a possible connection in the shooting death of fellow rapper and Englewood resident, Joseph ‘Lil JoJo’ Coleman.[10] Due to related concerns for his safety, Cozart has not resided in Chicago since.[11]

On October 17, 2012, Cook County prosecutors asked a judge to remand Cozart to juvenile detention for alleged parole violations stemming from a video interview he held at a shooting range. A hearing was set for November 20.[12]

Controversy

Rhymefest

In June 2012, Chicago rapper Rhymefest authored a blog post critical of Chief Keef’s image and message, describing Cozart as a “bomb” and a “spokesman for the Prison Industrial Complex”. The post was also critical of rappers Waka Flocka Flame and Rick Ross, citing similar reasons.[13]

Lupe Fiasco

In an August 2012 interview with Baltimore radio station 92Q Jams, Lupe Fiasco stated that Chief Keef “scares” him and went on to describe the other rapper as a “hoodlum” and representative of Chicago’s “skyrocketing” murder rate.[14] Keef responded on September 5 with a tweet threatening Lupe Fiasco,[15] but then claimed that his account had been hacked and that the previous tweet was inauthentic.[16] On September 13, 2012, Fiasco released a video interview in which he made amends to Keef.

Instagram

On September 15, 2012, Cozart uploaded a photograph of himself receiving oral sex to the image sharing application Instagram. As a result, his account was subsequently banned for violating Instagram’s terms of service.[18]
