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 claims Keef fathered her kid -- born in 2011 -- when he was only 15.

Rap sensation? That's a gross exaggeration. I don't know how he has a rap career at all. He looks like the only word in his vocabulary is duh. I'm shocked that he can spell words on Twitter.

No idea who this is. All you need is a form letter and substitute a name since this story seems standard in the rap community.

Nothing prodigious about being a LOSER. That's what we used to call people who made babies they didn't take care of, got arrested, and smoked weed like it was going extinct.
