Chief Keef has finally signed to a label and Interscope is his new home.
“I’ve been talkin’ to a lot of labels, but I just noticed Interscope got people like 50, Eminem,” Keef began telling MTV’s RapFix before he took the stage at Birthday Bash. “They was talkin’ good to me. They was talkin’ like I was talkin’ and I liked that. all these other labels, I was talkin’ to ’em, but it’s time anyway for me and I’m goin’ with Interscope.”
The news is great news for the 16-year-old Chicago rhyme slinger and architect of the hit single, “I Don’t Like,” but it’s not so great news to T.I.’s Grand Hustle imprint, Young Jeezy’s CTE and Cash Money.
The latter had especially made a hard push to attain the services of Keef.
“I like him, he kinda remind me of us,” Baby told MTV News back in May. “He’s out the streets, I think he swagged up and I’m definitely talkin’ to his people and I’d like to see if we could get it to pop, see if I can get him to be down with the team.”
Keef’s stardom was taken to another level last month, when Kanye West decided to remix Keef’s “I Don’t Like” along with Pusha T, Jadakis and Big Sean.—Jakinder Singh
