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.

Come on, all. TMZ thinks this guy is cool because he fits right in with the rest of the garbage lives of people they deem "CELEBRITIES". He fathered a child when he was 15, that makes all the girly-men of TMZ walk around proudly like Peac**ks struttin' their stuff because fathering children early and porn stars are all the rage of TMZ.

I don't care what he does - So long as lindsay lohan can get away with her crimes I hope he's able to as well. Simple as that.

Another day, another ****** in the slammer. Throw this ghetto-trash back where it belongs and let the gangs sort it out. Most people don't realize they're doing the rest of the country a favor by thinning out their numbers.
