Chicago rapper Keith “Chief Keef” Cozart was evicted from his Highland Park home this morning although the owner of the home, Bal K. Bansal, denied that it was an eviction but a mutual move.

“This is mutual,” Bansal said. “It is not an eviction.” 

evictOfficers on the scene confirmed that Cozart was being evicted.  An order for a forcible entry and detainer was filed at a May 7th court hearing leading to the eviction whose process started back in February.

According to documents, by March, Chief Keef had fallen behind on rent payments by around $30,000 before reaching a payment agreement in full by April 20th.

Bansal has said that he thought that Chief Keef was a good tenant, but the neighbors have a different story to tell.

They complained about the amount of car traffic that would frequent the home.

“It’s been horrible,” said neighbor Ken Cooper, who said he thought he heard gunshots from the home one night. “They were certainly not good tenants.” 

TMZ is reporting that Keef is not faced by the eviction, shortly after being led off of the property he put up an Instagram post boasting that he was looking for houses.

The Highland Park home that Cozart was just evicted from was built in 2005 on nearly a one acre lot and features five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, vaulted ceilings, brick patio and a four car garage.

It would appear that the gunshot heard by the neighbors was the last straw outside of him not paying the rent.

“We just want them to leave as quickly as possible,” Ken Cooper said. “Hopefully we get a very nice tenant in.”
