• Welcome to Chief-Keef.com

Young, infamous Chicago hit-maker Chief Keef most recently made headlines for his alleged connection to a shooting death, but that doesn’t change the fact that he’ll be releasing his debut for Interscope later this year.
Best known for his endlessly catchy street single “Don’t Like,” the rapper will issue Finally Rich as his debut for the major. Previously, that title was attached to his debut mixtape, but those plans have been scratched and it’ll now be a major release.

Chief Keef says that Interscope wasn’t the only label that was looked into getting him to sign a deal and explained that he entertained offers from other imprints, but finally Interscope’s persistence convinced him to sign on. Of course, his respect for some of the label’s roster, including 50 Cent, might have had something to do with his decision.

According to Keef, even after he reached a tentative arrangement with Interscope, other label’s were making offers. “I was talking with Larry Jackson…first he came to my old house in Michigan. Then he came to my new house, so I talked to him both times. We had agreed to make it happen, but other labels were coming too though,” Keef told ThisIs50.com.

Keef still hasn’t had a chance to meet 50 Cent, but he expressed his respect for the G-Unit general and his crew. “I ain’t met 50 Cent yet, but I used to listen to him all the time. G-Unit…Tony Yayo, Lloyd Banks, what? I ain’t gonna lie, I lost my mama’s G-Unit CD and I ain’t even wanna go back in the house. As a matter of fact, I didn’t even lose it. I cracked her CD, and I did not wanna go back in the house and tell her that,” said Keef.

Keef also spoke briefly on Young Chop’s initial dissatisfaction with Kanye West’s remix of ‘Don’t Like..

Chief Keef enlists a handful of big names for his upcoming mixtape.

After signing with Interscope Records, Chief Keef is in no rush to put out his debut album. Instead, he’s got plans to drop another mixtape titled Finally Rich, revealing a handful of guest appearances to expect on the project during an interview with Pitchfork Selector.

“I’m going to do an album whenever Interscope tells me to do an album. But I’m doing a mixtape. When they say it’s album time, it’s album time,” he said, name-dropping a few features on the tape. “Yo Gotti, Young Jeezy, Waka Flocka, seeing if I can get Gucci on there… I got a lot of people on there.”

REarlier this month, Chief Keef shocked fans with the news that he had signed to Interscope with a publishing deal under Dr. Dre. But not everyone’s celebrating the 17 year old rapper’s success; now, in a recent guest post with Analog Girls In a Digital World, fellow Chi-Town emcee Rhymefest speaks on why Chief Keef’s music is a detriment to society.

In the post, Rhymefest described Keef as an intellectual bomb that misrepresents African-Americans. He also blasted Keef’s new-found home Interscope and the major radio stations that continue to endorse and make a profit off of his music. ‘Fest continued on, lashing out at Waka Flocka Flame and Rick Ross, whom he said share equal blame in poisoning the minds of the youth.

One of hip-hop’s most talked-about newcomers, Chief Keef, made his buzzy debut in New York City on Monday night (June 25). Fans, media and industry insiders waited for several hours before the “I Don’t Like” rapper took the S.O.B.s stage (where rappers like J. Cole and Drake performed some of their early NYC shows) around midnight.

Outfitted in a demure blue denim vest and shades, Keef, accompanied by a huge entourage, performed a compact set of some five songs including “I Don’t Like” and “3Hunna.” Keef relished in the crowd’s reaction, which understandably peaked during his biggest hit “I Don’t Like.” He seemed aware that he had arrived and was genuinely enjoying his moment. The ever-growing onstage entourage proved distracting though, often turning his rhymes into rambling and chaotic fare at times. Then, without fanfare, the rapper ended his set and disappeared; leaving everyone wanting more.
