Well before Chief Keef (born Keith Cozart) was one of the most common teenage rappers in America and the youngest major label mind in history, he was a legend among kids to the South Side of Chicago, a gritty group of areas that most recently made the news for the astonishing rise in murder rate (up 38% in 2012 alone). On December 4, 2011, at age 16, Keef was shot at by police and arrested for unlawful use of a gun and consequently placed under house arrest, at his grandmother's house, for monthly. On the day he was launched, the earth outside of Chicago got their first taste of Keef's presence: a viral video called 'It's Something Wrong With This Lil Boy: Freaks Out When He Finds Out His Favorite Rapper 'Chief Keef' Gets Out of Jail.''
His music gained prominence within the Chicago Public Schools, the third-largest school district in the nation with over 400,000 students, even though Keef himself stopped attending school at age 15. Keef's YouTube video for 'Bang,' a song from the mixtape Bang that he produced in 2011, garnered about a million opinions before Keef had any exposure outside of his home town, spurred by young listeners who found the atmosphere in Keef's noise and the meaning in his lyrics to become resonant in their particular lives.
In the movie, a youngster screams and sings in joy for about four and a half-minute about Chief Keef's launch, prompting YouTube comments like 'Who the hell is Chief Keef'? But many individuals knew just who the hell Chief Keef was because he'd been doing something virtually unheard of in the Internet age: becoming greatly common through local word of mouth. chiefkeef shirts
Keef's music, largely made up of humble home-made chain and drum tracks punctuated by his threatening, nihilistic words, sounds like the next evolutionary step in the style of tracks by Lex Luger and Waka Flocka Flame. But more importantly, his music accurately and honestly reflects the violence, hopelessness and frustration, as well as moments of triumph and joy, of the surroundings that Keef and hundreds of thousands of other poor and working-class young ones live in all over the world. On 'Bang,' Keef raps with punchy, syncopated supply, 'That smoke's got me gone, can hear it in the air/we on top like some steps, don't offer a f**k, I be goin' to hell.'
Keef's faithful fanbase in Chicago was built on the support of local fans and via a network of likeminded artists like Keef's relative Fredo Santana, SD, Lil Durk and Lil Reese, along with producers like Young Chop and DJ Kenn. DJ Kenn, who was simply literally removed the street by Chief Keef's uncle after visiting Chicago from Japan, explain's Keef's attraction this way: 'First-time I found the studio, I didn't
Nearly three months after Chief Keef was launched from your home confinement at the beginning of 2012, 22-year-old Bay Area rapper Lil B (another unsigned phenom) hopped on a remix of 'Bang,' and a week after that, Soulja Boy did the same thing for Keef's '3Hunna.' But the moment that gave Keef the most exposure to the world outside of Chicago was, ironically, the consequence of another Chicago rapper: Kanye West. On March 12, Keef released his next mix-tape, Right back from the Dead, featuring the song 'I Do not Like,' just one therefore big that it became Keef's calling card, and on May 1, Kanye West released a remix of 'I Don't Like' featuring himself, Chief Keef, Pusha T, Jadakiss and Big Sean. No one in the rap world may ask, 'Who the hell is Chief Keef'? after that.
Rap supporters waited eagerly for weeks until, fittingly, the biggest signing windfall came to Chief Keef on June 16, 2012. On that day, Keef told MTV that he had signed to Interscope (and signed a publishing deal with Dr. Dre) after being publicly pursued by brands like T.I.'s Great Hustle Files, Waka Flocka Flame's Stone Team Monopoly and Birdman & Lil Wayne's Small Money Entertainment. Keef's traditional package included an Interscope mark for his team (Glory Boyz Entertainment), their own distinct Beats by Doctor. Dre headphones called Beats by Keef, and a biopic about his life.
Now, with all the excitement bordering his signing behind him, Keef is moving on to his next step: another his debut album and mixtape. The mixtape, Finally Rich, which happens later this year, will discover Keef combined with several of the largest rappers in the commercial, including Waka Flocka Flame and Young Jeezy. His currently untitled debut album, is slated to stop by the end of 2012, and it will cap off one of the very most amazing stories in hip hop: In one year, 17-year-old Chief Keef went from being on house arrest at his grandma's house to being a national rap superstar, all years before he is old enough to get a drink.
