In the trap love story of the year, Gucci Mane recently announced to the Twitter world that Chief Keef is the newest recruit to his 1017 Bricksquad Records (see below). Queue internet explosion.
Life is sweet for Chief Keef. In the last month or so the 17-years-young Chicago native scored himself a name check on Jay-Z’s ‘Open Letter’, recorded with Kanye in Paris, and the legendary George Clinton compared his track ‘I Don’t Like’ to the tasty tunes of Funkadelic. With the news of this official nod of approval from Guwop it seems that Chief Keef is set to continue riding the crest of the high and mighty trap wave.
Whilst details of the partnership are yet to be made public, Keef is currently signed to a three-album label deal with Interscope records and maintains his own imprint Glory Boyz Entertainment. Word is he has until December this year to sell 250,000 copies of his debut Finally Rich or Interscope have the option to terminate the agreement. So far he’s moved around 152,000.
The news of the partnership comes less than two months after Wacka Flocka told MTV’s RapFix that he and frequent collaborator Gucci Mane are severing their musical ties:
“I won’t do no music with him, I don’t want no business with him, nothing. I’ll party with you, but I’m not doing no kind of business with you”
Looks like Gucci has himself a new BFFL in Chief.
