Chief Keef Covers Complex’s “Finally Rich” Week!
He hasn’t graduated from high school yet, but Chief Keef is already looking like rap’s Most Likely to Succeed for 2013. Since the release of his 2011 breakout single “Bang,” the Chicago Southsider has gone from being on house arrest at his grandmother’s to landing a label deal with Interscope Records at the age of 17. Keef is not just one of the hottest new artists in rap, he’s also one of the most reviled. Though he’s an obvious contender for rookie of the year, his deceptively simple hooks and unrepentant misbehavior have led to misgivings among the hip-hop intelligentsia. But let’s keep it one hundred—or better yet, 3Hunna: Regardless of the critics, Chief Keef is winning. Hoping he doesn’t sign his life away to a label and go the way of Kreayshawn.
