An arrest warrant was issued for Chicago rapper Chief Keef Monday after he failed to show up for a child support hearing.

According to the Chicago Tribune, the hearing was to address $10,000 in back child support the 18-year-old rapper allegedly owes the 30-year-old mother of his 17-month-old daughter.

Keef, whose real name is Keith Cozart, has had a number of run-ins with law enforcement over the past couple of years. He spent time in a juvenile detention center on a probabtion violation last year, and has been arrested for drug possession and speeding.

Last month Cozart was evicted from a Highland Park home for not paying the rent.
