Chicago rapper Chief Keef might really be bad to the bone after being spotted by paparazzi this week following mansion eviction reports. #GetOut
While he did not deny the eviction buzz, Keef hardly served up an explanation for his situation.
Chief Keef says back rent was not the trigger for his eviction ... he tells us he was booted from his apartment because his neighbors just didn't like him. TMZ previously reported ... Keef was evicted from his unit in Highland Park, Illinois Tuesday. Sheriff's deputies escorted him out, and there were reports he owed $11,300 in back rent. But our photog spotted a self-professed "turnt up" Keef in West Hollywood hours after the eviction ... and he says it's not about money ... it's because, "I'm too bad, I guess I'm a bad little young boy, I gotta go."

Details of Keef's eviction emerged across the Internet Tuesday (June 10).
The South Side rapper, whose legal name is Keith Cozart, was evicted Tuesday from his rented mansion in Highland Park, police said. It's the latest in a long list of legal troubles for Cozart -- though a criminal investigation connected to him in another North Shore community has been closed, authorities said Tuesday. Movers carried Cozart's belongings out of the custom two-story brick home to a moving truck as Lake County Sheriff's deputies looked on. The owner of the house, Bal Bansal, said Cozart, 18, had been a good tenant and his departure was voluntary, but police confirmed it was an eviction. (Chicago Tribune)
Reports also claimed the eviction boiled down to him missing monthly payments.
According to court records, Cozart had been about $30,000 behind in rent payments as of March but had reached an agreement to catch up by April 20. But a final eviction order was filed May 7, records show. (Chicago Tribune)
Despite the seriousness, Keef hinted at having a new home on Twitter.
"Wait till y'all see my House tho!," Keef tweeted June 10. (Chief Keef's Twitter)
