We’re not even a full month into 2013, but Chief Keef has been having one hell of a year. Only twelve months ago, Keef was a virtual unknown Chicago teen who would take the rap game by storm with just about everybody adding, “That’s that sh-t I don’t like,” to the end of their sentences.
Chief Keef was taken into custody on parole violation charges, Tuesday (Jan.15). Nearly two weeks ago, a Chicago judge decided that he was not in violation for moving to a new neighborhood, but it looks like the law finally caught up with him.
Chief Keef has made some massive bad decisions in his short career, but admitting to murder might just take the cake. The Chicago teen is being accused of disguising his criminal confession surrounding the shooting death of rival, Joseph “Lil JoJo” Coleman in rhyme.
The sales projections are in for T.I.’s Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head release, and the Atlanta native is expected to do around 175,000. According to Hits Daily Double, Tip will come in between 150,000-175,000, while the week’s other rap release, Chief Keef’s Finally Rich, will sell 50,000-55,000 copies over the next several days.
Chicago rapper Chief Keef and his debut album Finally Rich just hit the shelves yesterday, but already critics of the 17-year-old rapper have surfaced. In Keef’s backyard, a blogger for a local NBC affiliate has taken aim at the Windy City artist by referring to his music as a “minstrel show.”
The Game’s fifth studio album, Jesus Piece, took the No. 6 spot on Billboard’s Top 200 album charts, selling 86,000 copies in a week. The Compton rapper was defeated by Taylor Swift who maintained her No. 1 spot with her Red album moving an additional 208,000 copies. The release went double platinum in a month.
