    Chief Keef had a really bad Monday that just kept getting worse.

    The Chicago rapper, whose real name is Keith Cozart, was sentenced to 18 months probation for driving 110 miles-per-hour on the Edens Expressway. He must also pay a $531 fine and complete 60 hours of community service.

    After Cozart walked out of the Skokie Courthouse, he was arrested again, this time for an outstanding misdemeanor trespassing charge.

    The charge came from a May 16 complaint when Cozart allegedly was at a housing complex in the 6300 block of South Martin Luther King Drive without permission. A security guard called police.

    As if that wasn't bad enough, the rapper on Monday also was served with his second paternity lawsuit.

    It's the latest in a string of recent legal troubles for Cozart. Last month he was arrested and jailed outside of Atlanta when a hotel security officer said he smelled marijuana coming from his room.

    In April he was released from jail after serving 60 days on a probation violation. Cozart was initially on probation for pointing a gun at a Chicago Police officer in 2011.

    Over the past year, the rapper has managed to sign a major record deal and release a full-length CD in December, but he's also come under fire for joking on Twitter about the shooting death of an 18-year-old rival rapper, Joseph "Lil JoJo" Coleman, a crime police believe may have been gang-related.
