Life and career
Chief Keef was born Keith Farrelle Cozart in Chicago, Illinois, to Lolita Carter who was 15 and unwed. He is named after his deceased uncle, Keith Carter, who was known as “Big Keef.”
He lived at the Parkway Garden Homes, locally known as O-Block, located in the Washington Park neighborhood on the city’s South Side, a stronghold for the Black Disciples street gang of which Chief Keef is a member.
Chief Keef has been estranged from his biological father, Alfonso Cozart, since he was a minor. His legal guardian was his grandmother with whom he lived in Chicago. He began rapping as a 5-year-old using his mother’s karaoke machine and tapes to record his music.
During his childhood, Chief Keef attended Dulles Elementary School and the Banner School, a therapeutic day school. He dropped out of Dyett High School at age 15.
In 2012, his popular local single “I Don’t Like” was remixed by American rapper Kanye West and reached the Billboard Rap Top 20, further raising Cozart’s profile.
A bidding war between major labels resulted in Keef signing with Interscope. His debut album Finally Rich was released in December 2012, and featured the singles “I Don’t Like” and “Love Sosa”, which would popularize the Chicago rap subgenre drill.
Chief Keef has faced ongoing legal issues during his career, including weapons possession charges, house arrest sentences, and a performance ban imposed by Chicago authorities.
