Success isn’t owned, it’s leased and rent is due everyday. Unfortunately for Chief Keef, since he couldn’t hold up on his end of the deal he no longer has to worry about paying his rent to Interscope Records.
Recently, Rapper Chief Keef was quietly dropped from his record deal with Interscope Records. Sources confirm the split happened about a week ago. Since signing with Interscope Records back in 2012, the 19-year-old rapper has given them his debut album, “Finally Rich,” and well not much else.
AllHipHop says, from an anonymous source, prior to his release Interscope allegedly began disassociating itself from the Chicago rapper after he had a series of legal cases, ranging from lawsuits to drug offenses, sprout up in 2013 and 2014.
“Keef and his people tried to keep the label accountable (once Keef moved to Los Angeles) but Interscope didn’t seem interested in dropping a new album. Keef’s team tried to have formal meetings but nothing moved,” a source says.
Tension intensified once Keef moved to LA to be closer to his label. Even after he had made efforts for a lifestyle change to escape the negativity that surrounded him in Chicago that still wasn’t enough for Interscope.
The good news is Chief Keef is keeping a positive attitude about the situation as he confirms to fans, on twitter, that he has been dropped from the label.
