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.

This man and his whole life is ashy, his soul is even ashy. He needs to stop blowing his money on strippers and start stocking up on cocoa butter.

What a joke. A prodigy RAPPEr. Give me a break, Rap is not music, it is simply rhyming offensive language, slurs, degarding comments and offensive language and the only people who like that crap are the uneducated ghetto morons who think that these unedicated lunatics have "talent" which they don't. They do have a prepensity for being degrading, though guy wannabees who know how to break the law and then complain that they are being unjustly accused ( right up until they plea bargain their cases, end up doing time, or better yet, end up dead.)
