Mr. Cozart, better known as Chief Keef, is undoubtedly a pioneer of drill music. Since his decline in mainstream commercialism, he has become more of a melodic tuner and his latest song fully shows that.
In 2012, asking what was next for then 17-year-old Chief Keef was irrelevant. Everyone loved his early mixtapes and it was inevitable that his reign as the youngest MVP would continue for eternity, as long as he stayed out of trouble.
Unfortunately, some undisclosed information forced Chief Keef to be dropped from his original label, he got into trouble a few more times. With Kanye West who is from the same city as him, being one of his first mentors, Chief Keef would surely be able to rely on his talents though, regardless of his somewhat recklessness.
Chief Keef once had a target on his back so big that he eventually lost the privilege to perform in his own city of Chicago, as directed by the mayor. With all the trouble that he has been in though, Keef has never lost faith in his abilities as a rap talent nor has he lost faith in his true fans who have stuck by him, no matter what.
Throughout the past few years, Keef has spent his time in the rap game as a reliable and consistent influence on the culture. He’s released mixtape after mixtape, popped up on many other artists’ songs and he’s even changed the entire lingo of young hip hop fans on numerous occasions.
Even if some people believe that he has fallen off, his production skills on other’s songs, his lyrical improvement, and maturity as a father and human being will tell a completely different story. Needless to say, it would be very hard for someone in his position, with how much this generation loves him, to ever fall off…
He’s back with another single now. The title of the song is “No Bap”, a spinoff of the popular phrase “no cap”. In the song, he uses his usual catchy lingo, comical gestures, and totally defiant use of vocabulary. If you haven’t listened to Chief Keef very much in the past year, you might be surprised by how large his catalog has grown and you may even be pleased with his improvement in lyricism.
You should definitely go check out “No Bap” if you haven’t already!
