Chief Keef Arrested for Assaulting Producer Ramsay Tha Great
The Chicago rapper was arrested on Thursday night (Jan. 26) after producer Ramsay Tha Great accused the rapper and his squad of breaking into his house and assaulting him with an AK-47. Despite the stigma that marks rappers and producers that choose to cooperate with law enforcement, Ramsay stands by his decision to "snitch" on Keef. You can see his explanation in the video above.
According to TMZ, Keef was wanted by police for questioning in the armed home invasion. LAPD received a warrant to search the rapper's home in Tarzana, Calif. Thursday night. Keef and Tadoe were among those taken into custody. Sosa's bail is currently set at $500,000.
Ramsay first reported the alleged assault about a week ago, uploading a video of himself explaining the situation onto his Instagram account. In the video, the visibly injured producer recounts the story of his ambush, which includes goons and a Draco AK-47.
"It was a violent home invasion involving firearms being pointed at victims," LAPD Capt. Brian Pratt told NBC. "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."
Predictably, a ton of folks have come out to diss Ramsay for telling the police about his attack, but just as he did in the video up top, Ramsay maintains that he's unconcerned with being labeled a snitch. "Ya'll can say a rat or whatever man, but hey man. I'll see you in court," Ramsay says in the video. "I'll see you in court."
