Chicago rapper Chief Keef's daughter joined him as the pair took to the stage at the Lyrical Lemonade Summer Smash Festival in Bridgeview’s SeatGeek Stadium on June 16, 2024. This marked the rapper's first performance in Chicago in over a decade after he was banned from local shows due to legal troubles and clashes with government officials.

Chief Keef, aged 28, is the father of nine children, all with different women. The drill rapper has been taken to court multiple times for unpaid child support.


Chief Keef's children and their mothers explored

According to Hollywood Life, Chief Keef, whose real name is Keith Farrelle Cozart, had his first child when he was 16, a daughter named Kayden Kash Cozart. In 2013, he had his second daughter, Kimora Sosha Cozart, and was taken to court to pay child support.

In 2014, he welcomed his third child, a son named Krüe Karter Cozart. The following year, an unidentified woman sued him, claiming the drill rapper was the father of her child.

In August 2015, he was again embroiled in controversy for naming his newborn son Sno "FilmOn Dot Com", based on the eponymous record label, to promote his album Bang 3. In 2018, the rapper was brought in front of a judge after one of his baby mamas claimed he should be imprisoned for not fulfilling his child support requirements.

During the court trial, the rapper revealed that he had four additional kids, all under the age of five, Kamiah, born in 2015, Khalo, born in 2017, and twins Khalil and Kirsten, born in 2014, all born to different women. Before the 2018 lawsuit, Chief was already paying $564 per month for child support for each child and later added the other four children to the agreement.

While the mothers of most of his children are unknown, he shares his son Zinc with social media model Aareon "Slim Danger" Clark. In 2017, Clark took him to court, claiming the rapper refused to see his child nor take a paternity test. In 2018, the court ruled Chief Keef was Zinc's father and the rapper co-parents his son with Clark.

According to The Sun, Clark met Chief Keef after sending a picture and video of herself on Instagram. She reportedly mentioned in her podcast that she manifested her pregnancy, adding:

“I didn’t get pregnant yet, so I was like, ‘I gotta do a little bit more manifestation. I got to get pregnant.'"

Chief Keef performed in Chicago for the first time in over a decade

Chief Keef performed in his hometown of Chicago for the first time since 2012 at the Lyrical Lemonade Summer Smash Festival on June 16. He and his daughter took to the stage as the rapper performed his hits, including Earned, I Don't Like and Faneto.

In a May 2024 interview for Grammy.com, the rapper claimed he was excited to perform in his hometown after years, adding:

"It's been a while, man. I ain't gonna lie, it's gonna be like I'm a tourist when I go there. It's been a long, long time. It's been like 11, 12 years since I touched the pavement in Chicago, or Illinois, period. I'm ready. I know it's going to be a big thing."

The drill rapper made amends with the Chicago mayor's office after being banned by then-mayor, Rahm Emanuel, from performing in the city. In July 2015, the rapper was stopped from performing at a benefit for the victims of a Chicago shooting, with Emanuel deeming him "an unacceptable role model."

Chief Keef, a Los Angeles resident since 2014, resolved his legal issues in Chicago before his performance, including an outstanding warrant associated with a 2014 DUI case in Lake County and an outstanding warrant for unpaid child support in Cook County in 2014.
