Rapper Chief Keef has reportedly been dropped from his record label.

The hip-hop star, real name Keith Cozart, has been embroiled in legal issues for the past several years and in the summer (14), the 19 year old relocated to Los Angeles in an effort to remove himself from the troubles he was experiencing while living in his native Chicago, Illinois, according to AllHipHop.com.

However, the move brought him closer to executives at Interscope Records and that has caused tension over the way they are working behind the scenes on his new album.

A source tells the website, "Keef and his people tried to keep the label accountable (once Keef moved to Los Angeles), but Interscope didn't seem interested in dropping a new album. Keef's team tried to have formal meetings but nothing moved."

Chief Keef was signed to the label in 2012 and released his first album, Finally Rich, later that year.
