"Chief Keef, that's the sh!t I don't like." Chief Keef, 17, is one of the most popular new rappers in the proverbial game right now, what with his big money deal and all. But fellow Chicago emcee Rhymefest didn't drink the ignorance-flavored Kool-Aid.
In a guest post for Analog Girl in a Digital World, Rhymefest likens Keef to a bomb whose purpose is to destroy the black youth.
Says Rhymefest: "Chief Keef is a 'bomb,' he represents the senseless savagery that white people see when the news speaks of Chicago violence," he said. "A bomb has no responsibility or blame, it does what it was created to do: DESTROY! Notice, no one is talking about the real culprits, the bomb maker or the pilot who is deploying this deadly force (labels, radio stations). It's easier to blame the bomb...who is bank rolling this operation and why? This could only be described as an opportunity for this young man if he was receiving artist development, responsible mentorship and counseling for his obvious trauma...major record labels always put million dollar life insurance policies on artist of this nature so that they get paid one way or the other."
