Have y’all seen rapper Cheif Keef lately? He looks like his name should be SHENIQUA JACKSON.
Following his meteoric rise to fame, Chief Keef has been relatively quiet these days. Hopping on projects to lay down guest verses, but not churning out that much music himself.
At the age of 16, his single “I Don’t Like” went viral. It became so big that even Kanye West flipped it on his G.O.O.D. Music album. The link also proved fruitful for Chief Keef who ended up on Kanye West’s Yeezus album the following year.
“I actually became humble to that sh*t,” he told XXL, reflecting on the past 5 years. “To see that I can do that… I’m really out here having an influence on the vibes of the new, upcoming rappers. It’s cool though. I just wanna keep doing that, keep influencing. I came in 2012 with Finally Rich. They love that shit, boy. That sh*t stuck like glue. Then that whole situation, they look at me as a person and where I came from and see it’s real as f*ck, and I’m so young. So this is like… if he can do it, they can do it. So I just want to keep doing that. For anybody else that come, that’s cool with me.”
Still in his early 20s, he has been credited with influencing the new generation of rappers including Lil Yachty, Lil Uzi, Fetty Wap and even Amber Rose’s boo – 21 Savage.
His influence musically is undeniable… we’re just not sure about this hair tho…
