TARZANA (CBSLA.com) — A rapper known as Chief Keef faces criminal charges Friday in connection with a home invasion robbery at a Tarzana home.
Chief Keef, whose real name is Keith Cozart, was accused by his former music producer, Ramsay Tha Great, of entering his home with several others while armed and taking valuables.
The 21-year-old Chicago rapper was detained at his Tarzana home with at least two other men Thursday.
At least two men broke into a home in the 5100 block of Otis Avenue on Jan. 19, brandishing rifles, and robbed the victim, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Ramsay Tha Great posted an image of himself on Instagram last Friday to say the rapper and others broke into his home and took cash and a Rolex.
