Chief Keef has committed the ultimate sin–biting the hand that fed him. According to Keef, Kanye West didn’t do him any favors by remixing his Young Chop-produced track, “I Don’t Like.”
Granted, the 17-year-old Chicago native had a considerably large following prior to Kanye’s intervention, but after Kanye hopped on the remix, Keef’s notoriety swiftly spread outside the Illinois border.
Even if Keef truly believes Kanye did not help him attract a mainstream audience, he should have kept his comments to himself. Kanye is one of the most successful rappers of all time; he didn’t gain anything from remixing the song. Keef’s announcement is off-putting and makes him seem ungrateful.
