Chief Keef

An influential figure in the 2010s drill scene, rapper Chief Keef pulls inspiration from the Chicago streets, delivering hardcore rhymes that often focus on inner-city tales of violence and drugs. Kicking his career off at the age of 16 with the street single "I Don't Like," he was a hit on Chicago's high school circuit before mixtapes and viral videos led to a contract with Interscope. In 2018, Keef repeated the prior year's prolific streak with a dizzying slew of mixtape releases, including two installations of The Leek series and the first two parts of The GloFiles. With barely a pause in his output, Keef picked his GloFiles series back up, issuing the third volume in late 2019 and the fourth in 2020. "Bang Bang," a collaboration with Mike WiLL Made-It, appeared later that year, followed in 2021 by singles like "The Talk" and "New Bugatti,"
