Chief Keef Announces His Retirement

Chief Keef appeared to announce his retirement from the Rap game via Twitter last week (March 2).

When a user by the name of @Jaron_land informed the Chicago rapper that he’s behind on releasing music this year, Chief Keef announced that he’d stepped away from the mic.

“I’m retired you didn’t know?” Sosa said in response. “To many niggas sound jus like me or saying shit like almighty would [laughing emoji]”

It’s currently unclear whether Chief Keef was serious with his statement.

Hopsin Leaves Funk Volume Following Fallout With Co-Founder Damien Ritter

Following a public fallout with fellow co-founder Damien Ritter earlier this year, Hopsin has announced that he’s officially left Funk Volume, the label he co-founded with Ritter in 2009. The Panorama City, California rapper has now signed to his own independent label, Undercover Prodigy.

Hopsin addressed his rift with Damien Ritter throughout his recently released, self-produced track, “ILL Mind of Hopsin 8,” which he dropped off this past Tuesday (March 8).

“It feels great, great feeling,” Hopsin said about releasing the track in an exclusive interview with HipHopDX. “Been waiting to get it off my chest for two months now. I didn’t want to resort to that, but the way things are going with the whole Funk Volume situation, it’s kinda rubbing me the wrong way, so I had to be vocal about it. That’s since I was a child, that’s been my way of venting so I just had to do what I do best and be vocal.”
