Birdman Says He Will Do "Whatever It Takes" To Sign Chief Keef

Birdman says he'll pull out all the stops to sign Chief Keef to Cash Money.

It's been a big week for Chief Keef. First Kanye West remixes the young rapper's song "I Don't Like." Now, Birdman says he's trying to sign the 16-year-old.

"I like him, he kinda reminds me of us," said Birdman in an interview with MTV News. "[He's] out the streets, I think he's swagged up and I'm definitely talking to his people and I'd like to see if we can make it pop, see if I can see if I can get him to be down with the team."

Birdman continued to explain his interest in signing Keef. "That's what I like, it's a movement and he's young, I think the game needs young blood all the time," he said. "[We] need youngsters to keep it innovative, because they're new and creative in their own way. I'm into the young world, that's my thing. And I'ma do whatever it takes to make it happen."

    Some niggas ain't hustlers. So, when you get a nigga that's not a hustler, he becomes a bitch. And Birdman is a no-good bitch.

    oldman just wants to bust in his ass

  • ETK

    SOME OF YOU HATERS ARE ON SOME FUCKING ACID niggas out here callin you out on your haterade, and your only response is "faggot you must be a drake/birdman/ymcmb fan" fuck is wrong with you? you think you're helping your own cases? if you wanna accuse them of being fanatics of this shit, at least inquire about it first, jumping on their throat with no knowledge of what they like DOES make you look ignorant. some people here aren't necessarily YMCMB fans((unlike yessir and those other fruits) they just tryna tell you you're hatin too much. YMCMB makin numbers.. nothin we can do about it.. live with it not a YMCMB fan by the way.. but some of y'all won't even read that. some of y'all are on some fuckin acid. chill out. step back. focus on what you like. calling Drake a homo for the 199th time isn't gonna bring good karma your way or better the world man. fuck...

    • ETK

      nigga shut up. I couldn't care less about YMCMB and I'm glad you're proving my point. fuckin simpleton. I don't have to spend my days layin em out with the same homo jokes to prove it. it's one thing disliking a label/hip-hop group and it's another thing being a hater spouting the same shit day in day out @The Pedator: good one

    • The Pedator

      faggot you must be a drake/birdman/ymcmb fan

    • ETGay

      Closet fag YMCMB fan. Nobody's hating, they just telling the truth.

  • _|_ (^ _ ^) _|_

    Fuck this bitch queer punk faggot forever

  • mrdoozie

    i hope he signs that garbage ass grade school dropout so we can never hear from his ass again like jae millz,gudda gudda,t-streetz,and the other 20 no names

  • the truth is

    Birdman wants to sign him to make money off him and his easy-simple ass generic club songs/hood anthems (wow, were have we heard that before) and this type of music is mainly appealing to the same type of people who made the song anyway, he isnt signing him because his "movement" and "music" is somehow new, innovative or creative and sincerely really loves his "artistic" expression, so birdman needs to stop pretending that he wants to sign him beyond the purpose of making money off him while hes the flavor of the month.

  • You Know

    Dudes smart. Birdman made more money than I ever will.

    "[We] need youngsters to keep it innovative, because they're new and creative in their own way" stopped reading right there wow, innovative, creative?? cheif keef & his music exhibits those traits, really??! whatever birdman is smoking, i want some of it birdman, just like alot of record execs, are the cancer to real quality music. thats all im gonna say.

    Crazy how many hate ymcmb. its just music, go fuck with something else and stop being a player hater be an innovator nigga -MAKAVELI

    • ETK

      and it's haters like you two which don't help your own cases seriously, OP didn't even say "I like ymcmb" he told y'all to stop hating. and y'all calling him a faggot and a retard. you guys are no better, some voracious hater bullshit. you know what, I'm not as thrilled as yall that YMCMB is makin mad dough but honestly it could be worse. Birdman is smart but he's not that smart, YMCMB could be even further then they allow themselves to because of their exposure. plus they copped like 0 Grammys this year, most of em went to Kanye. instead of cryin foul like the world of music bout to go thru the shitter, step back and look at things in a positive way.. better yet, if you can't do that, just focus on what YOU like.. let these YMCMB kids and scrubs eat up their BS, nothin we can do about it

    • Anonymous

      better to be a player hater than to be an enabler of more terrible shitty unoriginal "music". innovator?? wtf is innovative about this bullshit?? nothing about this, its terrible shitty generic uncreative shit thats been done a million times already. like that guy said at the top, its retards like u why bullshit generic bland club/pop shit makes it to the mainstream smh

Sign all these wack ass niggas for all I give a damn. Just be the gatdamn headquarters for everything wack. That's actually not a bad idea.

      Actually Lex Luger has been on some other shit lately, dude. He isn't really doing that trap music much anymore. Listen to "Grooveline Pt 1" by Schoolboy Q and see what I mean.

  • Why?

    cheif's not even good enough to be on YMCMB and thats just sad. i didnt think their music could get any shittier but if they sign this retard...just wow!

  • Earner82

    Man, I actually got excited to hear what this Chief dude sound like...FAIL. Chief Keef is a rapper "I don't like". Shout out to Ca$h money strickly on the strenght of them being the only independent lable from the 90's still doin it.

  • Really???

    The business model for the record industry is causing the decline in records sales not the illegal downloading. Why is the birdman throwing money at a rapper for youtube views misguised as a movement and not on talent...A movement??? c'mon the black panthers were a movement but they couldnt rap for shit either....

  • bkstylz

    This seems more about competing with Kanye than actually signing a talented artist.+

    • Anonymous

      That I Don't Like jam was trash until Kanye remixed it. Kanye made it more listenable and still, I don't want to see that joint on the GOOD Music album. It would look like a filler track.

    • Mr Flamboyant

      If he thinks this kid is worth a damn then I suggest he sit in a closed garage with the car running and his windows down.

    • Aim80

      oh hell ya that kid's VERY lyrical... "bullets hot like the sun" daaaaamn, that shit was FIRE!!! Every one of his tracks should be called "shooting guns and smoking weed" because every other sentence is about either one of those.... and nothing else. Cant believe i wasted 7 minutes of my life actually looking this fuckin lame up and listening to 1.5 tracks. I think anonymous is right, Birdman will do whatever it takes to get that kid, just so he can turn him out.

    Since a label from Louisiana trying to sign him, he is about to get alot of hate. My Message to the people of Louisiana is this, lets stop showing love to artists from other states, because they don't like us nor our artists. It's time out for all this love we been showing!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i highly doubt a 16 year old's vocabulary range is advanced enough to produce quality raps. But hey... i guess Jeezy gets away with the 6th grade vocabulary.

    "I don't like" how people are treating this kid as if he's the new Nas or something. Why do all these dudes want to collab, sign and bring his name up like he's special? I can go to Atlanta and find a 100 rappers who sound exactly like this. Ringtone rap died about 3 years ago, stop trying reincarnate it in other regions.

    • CrackPipe

      I agree. Much respect to Chief Keef for garnering this much buzz at only 16 but there really is nothing unique about what he's doing IMO and I don't really get why all these labels and artists are dying to work with him. I can see why the song might be considered catchy but there's really not a lot of substance going on there.
