Chief Keef is always in the news, whether its for positive or negative reasons, for the most part it’s been the latter. It wasn’t long ago when Chief Keef and his GBE affiliates blew up over the internet. In a Span of months, Keef went from House Arrest, to getting a Co-Sign from fellow Chicago artist and Hip Hop legend Kanye West, to signing a 6 Million dollar record deal with Interscope Records. All of which happened while he was 16 years old.
In a interview with Billboard, Chief Keef talks about Life, his Careers, and his trials and tribulations. Here are some excerpts from the article.
“My last two mixtapes were mistakes,” he admits. “I was on promethazine, all drugged out. I was tweaking. I don’t sip the lean no more though.”
“It’s like being locked up,” Chief Keef, 18, tells Billboard, in his first interview since he entered rehab. “And when I’m locked up, I don’t want anybody to come see me. I won’t let my family come here. I haven’t seen my 2-year-old daughter.”
“I had to stay with 30 motherf**ers — and I don’t like people,” Keef says. “I ain’t no friendly-ass ni—a. I won’t shake your hand if I don’t like you. Don’t speak to me.”
According to reports, Chief Keef is doing well in a California Rehab Facility, and plans to return to the Chi as new man and new artist. He’s still only 18 years old, so Let’s hope he’s on the right path and the road to redemption.
