Chief Keef To Release "Finally Rich" Mixtape, Thanks Kanye West For His "I Don't Like Remix"

Chicago rapper Chief Keef speaks on his plans for a mixtape, Kanye West's "I Don't Like Remix," and more.

On the day after his first show in New York City, which took place last night (June 25) at SOB’s, Chicago rapper Chief Keef appeared on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club to discuss Kanye West’s “I Don’t Like” remix, his hasty rise to fame, and more.

While speaking on Kanye West’s remix of “I Don’t Like” the Interscope signee was asked if he was surprised that West didn’t offer him a spot at G.O.O.D. Music. Keef explained that he didn’t expect to be approached by the rapper, but was grateful for West’s remix of his song.  

“I mean I wasn’t really expecting it though,” said Keef. “I fuck with Kanye west though. He from Chicago and he made it to where he at now…I thank him for doing all the remixes and putting people like Jadakiss on there. Big Sean, everybody love Big Sean. Jada, he go way back. I was listening to him when I was young.”

While Keef’s rise to fame and his deal with Interscope Records seemed to almost come out of nowhere, according to Keef he knew this moment was coming.

“Not really cause I knew this was coming. I was expecting this,” Keef explained when asked if there’s one particular moment from the past few weeks that stands out the most. “I was supposed to catch this and I was ready for it to fall down. Let me catch it [and] I caught it. So everything. I’m thankful for everything that’s going on. All the rappers, like T.I.”

While an album from Keef is currently in the works, right now the rapper is focused on his upcoming mixtape, Finally Rich.

“I got a mixtape coming out right now, but then I’mma do my album. But I got a mixtape called Finally Rich. You know since everybody got Finally Famous I just said Finally Rich,” said the rapper.

    For you fools talking about he's not very bright & judging him b/c he doesnt sound educated ..remmeber a lot rappers and artists had to take vocal and speech lessons when they first started off. LL Cool J is a perfect example! Lot of ppl didnt think he'd last b/c of how ghetto he spoke ..I think Dr Dre will look out for this lil cat

  • poon

    this nigga be as ghetto as it gets. he wont last. he be spending all his money on stupid shit and be back to where he was. Hip hop has all been about hype.

    I like Keef's music, but this isn't a smart nigga. He'll be broke again in a year. He's all hype, and the minute he got signed, he's burning all his money on designer shit. His album won't do well. We've all seen this before

    Take a look at Chief Keef's face, a real close look. How many teardrops does he have? That's right, none! This guy is not a thug. I don't think we should listen to the garbage he spews if he's not a thug. You know how many teardrops Lil Wayne has? THREE! Plus he's got a jail ID. Wayne is really about that street life. Chief Keef is a kid from the suburbs who talks about being depressed cause some chick left him. People like Chief Keef are responsible for the pussification of America. People who want common sense and integrity to dominate people's lives support YMCMB.

    "You know since everybody got Finally Famous I just said Finally Rich" I haven't witnessed such an intelligent move since Malice's name change to No Malice. I think "1Hit1da" would've been a more expressive title.

    If he's around long enough, he'll learn. I'm surprised Interscope haven't begun prepping him with media training so he can confidently answer questions but I suppose he has to maintain this 'don't care', despondent, rebellious, street nigga attitude. The only problem is it could put of potential fans but I guess he's still new to the industry so a few bumps along the way is ok. Good luck mate.

    Wacka Flacka, Future and Chief Keef all have the same hair do and the same low IQ.

    What is a Queef Chief?

    It was a bad move for him to do that interview he came across like a fool and even the The Breakfast Club were talking about him on twitter saying some real funny stuff but very true

  • Chi-Town

    Nice to see a guy from the Chi make it. Unfortunately I feel like he should be way more humble. If he didn't get put on he would still be on house arrest kickin it in the hood. This guys only 16-17 and he already thinks he deserves the world. Keep this up and you'll be broke without anything by 23.
