After the rapper's arrest, Keef tweeted: "Jus Got Out Of Dekalb County jail In Atlanta Mad As f**k." Keef even instagramed his mug shot on his social media account.

This isn't Keef's first run-in with the law. This past March, Keef had completed a 60-day sentence for violating his probation on a gun conviction. Keef had violated the probation by firing a rifle at a gun range during an on-camera promotion last summer. According to The Chicago Tribune, Keef originally was on probation after "pointing a gun at a Chicago officer and was prohibited from having any contact with a firearm while on probation."

TMZ also reported that Keef was sued for child support by his middle-school aged baby mama earlier this year. The baby mama claimed the rapper fathered her child when he was only 15. A judge then ordered Keef to pay $2,600 a month in child support, $500 in day care and $10,400 in previously unpaid support.
