Chief Keef is obviously in a world full of heart in the wake of the senseless murder of one his closet Glo Gang members, Capo. A day before the act of violence occurred in Chicago, the Almighty Sosa was in Los Angeles promoting his upcoming projects, Bang 3 and Cozart.

While speaking to HipHopDX, Chief Keef revealed that he’s actually taking after his mentor Kanye West and diving in the dual rapping and producing arena.

Bang 3 is way different than [my debut album] Finally Rich.” he alleges. “And plus, I’m doing a lot of the production. I’m producing a lot of all that. ‘Came For The Money,’ a lot of songs is actually produced by me. It’s different because I have a different sound I’m bringing to the production world. I don’t think you’ve ever heard what I be doing when I’m producing something.”

It’s a fairly well-known fact that Chief Keef is on the independent circuit after Interscope parting ways with everything he lives and stands for. Adding some clarity to the situation, the 19-years-young rapper admitted that he did everything in his power to make the break-up happened.

“The dropped part I really didn’t care about,” he admits. “I was actually working towards that. I knew the stuff that I was doing would get me dropped. I didn’t want to be with Interscope, actually. Jimmy [Iovine] left, too, so I was like, ‘Nah, I don’t want to be with them.’ I was already doing what I do—not going to shows, not coming to they shit. I was saying no to everything and I knew that was going to happen. It made me look at the bigger picture. And I met [David] Alki, too. I’m glad to be with FilmOn. It made me look at the bigger picture of me and my music and how I need to grow up. I learned from mistakes. Everybody learns from their mistakes, but I didn’t really give a fuck. It didn’t make me go crazy. I don’t care, though. I really didn’t give no fuck.”
