Chief Keef

Keith Farrelle Cozart (born August 15, 1995),[5] better known by his stage name Chief Keef, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer. Cozart's music first became popular during his teen years in the early 2010s among high school students from Chicago's South Side.[6] In 2012, his popular local single "I Don't Like" was remixed by rapper Kanye West and reached the Billboard Rap Top 20, further raising Cozart's profile.[6] A bidding war between major labels resulted in Keef signing with Interscope. His debut album Finally Rich was released in December 2012, and featured the singles "I Don't Like" and "Love Sosa", which would popularize the Chicago rap subgenre drill.[7]
