The hits keep coming for rapper Chief Keef, only they aren't the musical kind.

The 17-year-old, whose real name is Keith Cozart, has been slapped with a child support lawsuit in Cook County Circuit Court, according to NBC Chicago.

In the suit, originally filed on Dec. 11, the child's mother, now 17, alleges Keef fathered a daughter with her in 2011.

In the lawsuit, Keef is tapped for “an appropriate amount of child support,” day care expenses, health insurance, out-of-pocket medical expenses and “retroactive” child support, and attorney fees, reports the Sun-Times.

The suit also claims “Keith earns a substantial income,” and calls the rapper "a well-known musical artist,” according to the Sun-Times.

According to the court filing, Keef has acknowledged paternity of the 14-month-old.

Last Wednesday, the rapper was sent to jail for 60 days following a parole violation.

Keef is already has one child. Speaking to DNAinfo Chicago, the rapper's grandmother Margaret Carter said of her grandson, "He is a good dad. He’ll never be a deadbeat. I taught him that.”

According to court papers, a hearing is scheduled for Feb. 6.
