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.

He's a prodigy alright in how to be a thug. Good role models in 50 cents and others who have gang banging, thug experience missed with multiple baby mama drama.

Every black school kid will want to smoke weed "like the chief."
What a waste of young ambition.
"Rappers" are the down fall of the young in the 21st century.

Just look at who he's rapped with. 50 cent by all statistics, should be dead. Shot how many times? Nine? And now he's got more money than probably all of us combined . Maybe this punk will end up on "The First 48".

No wonder this country is fkd up. This little "prodigy" has an arrest record, fatherhood, all by the age of 17. Wow, something to be really proud of. Glad he can rap because his looks def not his ticket to $$$.

Chief WHO? Who are these so-called sensations? If I haven't heard of him i doubt more than a hundred people have any idea who this bozo is. Stop overreaching with the phony PR.

how the hell can anyone consider him a "prodigy", when all he does is make swear words rhyme with brand named clothing, expensive liquor and big, "booties" - ugh!! today's rap/hip hop (and pop music - bieber, katy perry etc.) is about as deep as a puddle! it's nothing more than quickly assembled vulgarity chanted by someone who can't properly speak English and seems almost proud of their speech impediment, (ie. they can't pronounce the "th" sound).

and people pay to see these idiots!
real, music has died! instrumental ability has taken a backseat to image, shtick, and gimmicky tricks that foolish idiots (and young kids) confuse with actual musical talent. PITIFUL!!

A Black kid is caught with weed and you would think terrorists were featured on his music.
