CHICAGO — Macaroni time must move a lot faster than standard time.

Englewood rapper Chief Keef was arrested early Monday for driving 55 miles per hour over the speed limit on the Edens Expressway, officials said.

An officer radaring cars in suburban Northfield saw the 17-year-old, whose real name is Keith Cozart, pass him at Winnetka Road heading north on I-94 about 3:18 a.m., said Claude Casaletto, Northfield Police deputy chief.

"He clocked Mr. Cozart’s vehicle at 110 miles per hour in a 55-mile-per-hour zone," Casaletto said.

Keef was also cited for having an unlawful number of passengers in the 2011 BMW X6, as the 17-year-old's driver's permit allows him to have only one passenger, Casaletto said.

The young rapper was arrested, and one of his three passengers then drove the car, police said.

Keef was freed "shortly" after being taken to the station by posting a $200 bond, police said.

He is scheduled to appear in court for the misdemeanor violation in Skokie June 17, officials said.

The rapper's speed limit woes aren't his only trouble with cops, or his only arrest this month.

Last week, Keef was arrested in an upscale Atlanta hotel for smoking marijuana, police said.

In March, the rapper was released from juvenile detention, where he served 60 days for violating probation from a previous gun charge — for pointing one at officers.
