Chief Keef looks to be nearing the end of his 15 minutes of fame. The Chicago emcee burst from the underground after his hit “Don’t Like” went from a viral sensation to a global smash (with the help of some G.O.O.D. friends). A label bidding war broke out, with Keef finding his way to Interscope.
Unlike other rappers who find themselves signed to a major label after grinding hard on the indie level, Keef began to make news headlines for everything other than music. His alleged involvement in the murder of a local Chicago teen had many feeling like he would find himself behind bars before his debut album would drop. Well, he ducked that so far and his album, “Finally Rich” did hit shelves. After a ton of promotion, the album debuted with just 55k copies sold. His national tour was cancelled after the sales numbers came in, speculating many to believe that Keef was on his way out the Interscope door already.
Keef got more bad news today. He’s currently looking at running into another probation violation. Seems like Keef moved from his old neighborhood into a new one, without mentioning it to his probation officer. The rapper is expected to show up in court for a hearing tomorrow.
