Chief Keef Dropped From Interscope Records

Just two months after Trinidad James was reportedly dropped by the folks at Def Jam, another hot name from the 2012 rap game has been released from his major label contract.

News is breaking this afternoon that Chief Keef has been dropped from Interscope Records. The label, which initially gave Keef a deal worth $3 million, have yet to comment on the news. The rapper, on the other hand, was quick to confirm the rumors by uploading a screenshot of a text conversation with a friend he had shortly after the news broke. You can view that image at the …

Chief Keef Totes Guns And Louis Vitton Handbags In “Fool Ya” Music Video

Chief Keef has been unusually quiet throughout the majority of summer 2014, but last night he returned to the spotlight with a brand new song that is chock full of everything fans have come to expect from Chicago’s misunderstood king.

“Fool Ya” is a song that, as the title suggests, finds Chief Keef telling you all the ways he and his squad of goons can (and/or will) fool you. They might roll by in a Ferrari, then switch it up and swing by in a Benz just an hour later. Why? Because fools won’t be expecting that. Keef and his …

This is the second story like this I have written in two weeks and I wish I could tell myself it would be the last. Please, Chicago. Stay safe.

The Chicago Tribune is reporting that rapper Big Glo, real name Mario Hess, was shot dead last night in Englewood, IL. He was 33.

Glo, who happened to be a cousin to Chicago rapper Chief …

Chief Keef Sentenced To 90 Days In Drug Rehab

I guess Chief Keef really does hate being sober.

According to a new article on DNAinfo, Chicago native Chief Keef has been ordered into a 90-day residential drug treatment program.

Chief Keef Released From Jail Early

Chief Keef was on probation because of an incident in May where he was caught speeding in excess of 110 mph in his BMW on the Edens Expressway in Chicago. He was sentenced to 18 months probation and was ordered to undergo random drug testing during that time.

He failed a drug test on October 15, which violated his probation, so he was sentenced to 20 days in jail. However, The Chicago Tribune is now reporting that he’s been released after only 10 days, due to good behavior. Maybe he learned his lesson and will never speed again. We can …

Chief Keef Premieres “No Reason”

Chief Keef has remained in the headlines for virtually everything but his music recently, so it was refreshing to see the underage rapper return with a new track called “No Reason.” Unfortunately, these positive sentiments were rather short-lived for this admitted Chief Keef fan as the release isn’t exactly what one would expect from one of the most hyped rappers in recent memory. Although the beat is rather standard fare for Keef’s signature breed of trap rap, his offensively lazy and offbeat flow absolutely derails the song to the point it’s almost unbearable to listen to in its entirety.

Now that Mac Miller and J. Cole have had their album leak online in advance of their June 18 release date, all eyes are now on Kanye West’s Yeezus and all the mystery it holds. Though “New Slaves” has been broadcasted worldwide in the last month, no additional material has been made available for fans outside of live performances.
