    arguably the most influential rapper after 2012, chief keef has released numerous projects and been featured on kanye's yeezus alongside bon iver's justin vernon. perenially one of the genre's most misunderstood artists, keef raps in a way that many deem "stupid" or lyrical subjects that are viewed as glamorizing violence. the truth is that keef has grown into one of the most abstract artists working in the genre, pushing production, vocal technique, and lyrical norms to their limits in an effort to effectively communicate his (still shifting) perspective on violence and his community and life.

    Finally Rich, his debut studio album from 2012, remains one of the most important documents of rap in the 2010's. Since then he has released middling and mediocre mixtapes (Almight So, Bang 2) but also exceptional works (Bang 3 Pt 1., Almighty DP) and even more that question what it means to be a rapper, and specifically, one not yet 21 who was placed at the vanguard of a controversial subgenre in 'drill' from chicago who has a deep gift for pop melody that has largely been ignored since Finally Rich.

    Where do I start with this dude? I've only heard Sosa, which I thought was a pretty dumb song, but I'll take your word for it, Ryan, and assume that he's got more talent that what I first noticed on the surface level.

    Back from the Dead or Finally Rich. They're his most accesible releases most likely

    thot breaker is pretty good, but I preferred two zero one seven

    that being said, I'm a fan now and wasn't a year ago when I posted some dumb shit in this thread about how Sosa isn't a good song. what was I thinking?
