[Opinion] That's The Sh*t I Don't Like: The Inexplicable Rise Of Chief Keef & Rewarding Ignorance

Last December, 16-year-old Keith “Chief Keef” Kozart was arrested on gun charges for aggravated unlawful use of a weapon. The story behind his arrest suggests that Keef was one three individuals apprehended for firing gunshots out of a blue Pontiac Grand Prix in the Washington Park neighborhood of Chicago. When police arrived, one of the three teenagers pointed a gun in the direction of the cops. A single gunshot rang out but nobody was hit. Keef was arrested along with another unnamed teen. The third participant fled the scene. Keef spent 30 days in house arrest at his grandmother’s apartment and another 30 days in home confinement. Somehow, those events sparked the career of a young hip-hop star. “314 soldiers died in Iraq, 509 died in Chicago” – Kanye West on “Murder To Excellence” For the city of Chicago, this scene wasn’t out of the norm. Reason being is that Chicago has had a staggering uptick in gun violence among children. According to NPR, 700 children were hit by gunfire in 2010 and 66 of those were fatal. Homicides overall have gone up an eyebrow raising 38%. It’s no secret that Chicago is a cesspool of violence. This is the same city where 16-year-old Derrion Albert was caught on video beaten to death by his peers. The same city where high profile entertainers (Jennifer Hudson) and athletes (Eddy Curry) have seen members of their families murdered. The same city where rappers ranging from Kanye West and Lupe Fiasco to Common and Twista have been vocal about doing whatever it takes to curb gang violence in their city. So, why is it that Chief Keef — whose Facebook page once said that he works as a sales representative for “Selling Dope” — has been rewarded for endorsing the destructive gang culture that has plagued the city? Beats me. No sooner than the teenager’s house arrest ended did his meteoric rise begin. On January 2nd, WorldStarHipHop posted a video of a teenager going nuts once he learned that his favorite rapper Chief Keef was out of jail. In between fits of excitement, the boy recited lyrics to a then relatively unknown song titled “Aimed At You” including “What you in this sh*t for show? Who the f*ck is you n*gga?/ On that gangbanging sh*t, this is what I do n*gga” and “Middle fingers to that reggie, cause all I smoke is loud/Them guns super loud, will shoot a n*gga down.” How delightful of a ringing endorsement from one teenager to another that moonlights as a rapper when he’s not preoccupied by his gangster antics. And a big shout out to WorldStarHipHop for adding this totally unnecessary video to the pile of sh*t they continuously post for cheap hits that makes our community look bad. And way to go to all the people that have helped make WSHH one of the top 300 websites on the internet. You know, because as WSHH’s Lee “Q” O’Denat suggests “people relate to the realness.” Now, all everyone wanted to know was (as a WSHH user commented) “Chief who? Who the f*ck is cheif Keef?” All it took was one ignorant video to send people into a tizzy trying to find out just who in the hell Chief Keef was. His YouTube numbers for the video “Bang” went through the roof. Blogs jumped in on the mix and posted his videos and “Bang” mixtape. Shortly after, Lil B and Soulja Boy recorded remixes to his songs “Bang” and “3 Hunna,” respectively. But no remix would be bigger than the one for his local hit “I Don’t Like” where Kanye West, Pusha T, Jadakiss and Big Sean pulled the song out of the South Side and gave to the world (Ed Note: The song closes out the G.O.O.D. Music compilation Cruel Summer). Little did they know, they also gave the world Chief Keef and everything that comes with him. A major label deal with Interscope soon followed that reportedly gave Keef a hefty sum of money and the now 17-year-old can consider himself a star. He has the cosigns, record deal and 219k followers on Twitter prove it. However, it is kind of strange for Kanye West to blindly cosign someone who pushes the very culture he has tried to squelch on “Murder To Excellence.” But I’m sure that he won’t see it that way. Neither will Interscope.

I totally agree with everything you wrote. I don’t know much about Chief Keef but I do know that his music is wack. “I Don’t Like” was only a hot song AFTER Kanye West Virginia remixed it. Keef seems to be an ignorant young man. I’m sad that he has been given a platform to spread his brand of ignorance. The people who co-signed him should be held accountable as well. They’re all guilty as well. Reply September 6, 2012 10:56 amPOSTED 10 HOURS AGO Hextwitty Im interested to hear which artists you listen to, Hip Hop as a culture has always supported ignorance. Unless you listen to some Early 80′s Shit, then chances are you’ve contributed to this problem as well. Stop being Fckn Hypocrites!! Reply Visit site September 6, 2012 10:50 amPOSTED 10 HOURS AGO Hextwitty Man, you sound scarred. I really hope you read this. Hip Hop as a culture has always had it’s violent, Reality, and shock value aspect to it. I’m sure you listened to Snoop, 2Pac, Mobb Deep, or NWA back in the day. Nothing’s changed, just keep up with the times, and if you’re too old to listen to hip hop/Gangster Rap, then maybe you shouldn’t report on it anymore. & if you’re really scarred, go to Church. I’m not defending Chief Keef, I just think the opinions expressed are very hypocritical. Also, Lupe Fiasco needs to stop w/ all the weird shit. Like my mom used to say, if you’re really going to do something, you don’t talk about it. He’s already almost retired like 3 times. VIA thewellversed

Dr. Dre Tops Forbes Hip-Hop Cash Kings 2012 List

Earning more than both the silver and bronze medalists (Diddy at No. 2, Jay-Z at No. 3) combined, Dr. Dre – thanks to the fact that Beats By Dre headphones are the new Blue Magic in the hood – easily outpaced every other earner on the Forbes Hip-Hop Cash Kings 2012 list. Meanwhile, Detox continues to sit on the shelf looking like that one person who sat in the corner alone because nobody wanted to talk to them during lunch period. In other words, rappers don’t get rich off mixtape sales; why should you expect any different? Here is the entire list; hopefully it’ll compel some of us to take the time off talking shit on the Internets and make our mothers proud… 1. Dr. Dre: $110 Million 2. Diddy: $45 Million 3. Jay-Z: $38 Million 4. Kanye West: $35 Million 5. Lil Wayne: $27 Million 6. Drake: $20.5 Million 7. ‘Shit: $20 Million 8. Nicki Minaj: $15.5 Million 9. Eminem: $15 Million 10. Ludacris: $12 Million 11. Pitbull: $9.5 Million 12. Rick Ross: $9 Million 12. Wiz Khalifa: $9 Million 14. Snoop Lion Dogg: $8.5 Million 15. 50 Cent: $7.5 Million 16. Swizz Beatz: $7 Million 16.
