Happy Birthday, Chief Keef!
For a rapper whose career is barely a year old, Chief Keef has accomplished a lot in the last and has become one of hip-hop’s most visible personalities. Chief Keef released his debut album, Finally Rich, last December to mostly positive reviews if lukewarm sales. Meanwhile, he’s worked with a gaggle of hip-hop’s elite including Kanye West, 50 Cent, Wiz Khalifa, French Montana, Gucci Mane and Soulja Boy.
Keef has also been a lightning rod of controversy, not only for the nihilistic bent of his music but his frequent troubles with the law. He’s often been unfortunately labeled as “the poster boy” for the rising murder rate in Chicago as his music and attitude makes him an easy target for social critics.
