Being Lazy Cost Me

$230,000

How NOT to Handle a Lawsuit 101: a lesson brought to you by Chief Keef.

The 17-year-old rapper was sued by a concert promotion company called Team Major back in March ... which claimed Keef screwed 'em over by bailing on a London gig -- set to go down Dec. 29th 2012.

TM claimed Keef's stunt cost them OVER $75,000, including his advance.

Now the lesson part: according to docs, Chief NEVER bothered to respond to TM's suit. After FOUR months of radio silence a judge ruled in favor of Team Major ... simply by default.

Then the judge stuck it to Keef ... ordering him to cough up $230,019 for damages, loss of earnings, and reputational harm.

So McD's might not take his money, but we're sure these guys will ... lesson over.

All I know he's famous for is flashing a wad of money to TMZ at the airport, hopefully for him he's got a bunch more.

Lay off the weed and handle your business. Think about how many needy that $230k could have helped in your hometown.

for all the stories you do about this lowlife, i STILL done know WHO he is (supposedly a rapper, dont know ANY song by him)

i can only conclude you have some sort of interest in promoting him yourself, and if thats the case shouldnt you try harder to let us know WHY he's supposed to be famous instead of HOW stupid he is?
