CHIEF KEEF

At just nineteen, Chief Keef, an American hip-hop artist signed to major label, Interscope Records. He also owns his very own record label, Glory Boys Entertainment.

Chicago native, Keith Cozart, started by uploading mixtapes and music videos to YouTube, including “Bang”, “3Hunna” and “I Don’t Like”. It was the latter song that snowballed, gaining tons of attention, including that of Kanye West, who is also from Chicago. West produced a remix of the song featuring Pusha T, Kadakiss and Big Sean.

In the summer of 2012, Keef became the centerpiece of a bidding war among some of the most prominent major labels in the world. Eventually, Keef decided to sign with Interscope Records, who ultimately gave him the opportunity to run his own label. 

Keef's studio album, “Finally Rich,” was released in December 2012 and charted at number 2 on the US Rap Chart and 29 on the US Main Chart. He releases at least two mixtapes every year, all of which the music press and his loyal fans continuously propel to the top of national charts.
