SKOKIE, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Keith Cozart, better known as Chief Keef, raps that he hates being sober. But a positive test for marijuana has sent ding the rapper to Cook County Jail for 20 days, the Sun-Times is reporting.

Cozart, 18, was ordered to jail during a hearing at the Skokie Courthouse, according to Cook County Sheriff's office spokeswoman Sophia Ansari. Cozart turned 18 in August, and this is his first stint in the jail.

Cozart was required to undergo random drug testing following a May 27 arrest in Northfield for driving 110 mph in his black 2011 BMW on the Edens Expy.

He pleaded guilty to the charge and paid a $531 fine. He was also ordered to serve 18 months probation and complete 60 hours of community service, in addition to the random drug tests.

Cozart posted a picture of himself outside the courthouse on his Instagram account Tuesday morning: "OutSide Da Court House Turnning Myself In."

Keef has served time in juvenile detention for pointing a gun at Chicago Police officers. He was sent back to juvenile detention earlier this year for a violation of his parole for handling a firearm in a promotional video.

Keef, who grew up in Englewood, currently lives in Northbrook. He gained notoriety last year for a gloating tweet sent from his account after the slaying of a rival rapper.
