Rapper Chief Keef, whose real name is Keith Cozart, was arrested Thursday evening by the Los Angeles Police Department in connection with a “violent home invasion” of music producer Ramsay Tha Great.

NBC Los Angeles reported the incident occurred on Jan. 19, and Keef allegedly assaulted the producer during the robbery, in which armed men stole cash, a Rolex, and other valuables from Ramsay.

“It was a violent home invasion involving firearms being pointed at victims,” LAPD Capt. Brian Pratt told the station. “The detectives did some really great follow up investigation. Witnesses came forward and identified who our suspects were. We knew who we were going after — we weren’t just shooting in the dark.”

Ramsay isn’t being shy about providing information, either. He’s posted numerous photos of his injuries on Instagram, and gave his side of the story.

“Now if I was a celebrity I wouldn’t come personally jump a person with you five friends and a Ak 47 that’s just dumb your famous (sic),” the producer wrote. “Now I’m taking everything from you . U really just f—ed up dude coming to my house with your phone in your pocket with the location on…….. yea I’m pressing charges on yo a–. You a f–ing low life mf n—as out here tryna do positive s–t and you still on some goofy Chicago s–t . We’ll see u in court.”

He also posted a video giving his side of the story on the social media platform:


Keef was taken into custody by LAPD without incident at his Tarzana home.

A representative for Alki David, CEO of FOTV, which owns Keef’s label FilmOn Music, told Rolling Stone, “We will fight for him. We’re going to war, Sosa.”
