Chief Keef's been keeping busy, making waves on the Internet as usual. While in a court appointed rehab, the young Chicago rapper Keef has gotten into a heated war of words with not only rival Soulja Boy, but Atlanta's hot new trio, Migos. And now he's promising his forthcoming "Bang 3" mixtape will "raise the murder rate up." He took to Instagram, writing "Bang 2 And Almighty So On ITunes Right Now But Bang 3 No Lie Y'all Really Don't know How crazy Im goin #ImFinnaRaiseTheMurderRateUp" and "If I'm Lien I Can Get Killed right Now this Sh*t Is So f*ckin hardcore #ThatOldSosa #bang3 N*ggas Better Be Scared," the captions on his IG posts read.
Violence in Chicago and the rest of the nation's inner cities has existed long before Chief Keef and may continue long after he's gone. Many residents have renamed the Windy City "Chiraq" for its high rate of violence. Chicago, according to statistics, has a higher homicide rate than Kabul, Afghanistan. There were 506 murder victims in the Windy City last year. There are currently 373 murders recorded in the city thus far in 2013, according to DNAinfo.com.
A ridiculous rumor has been swirling that Gucci Mane killed a cellmate for sexually assaulting him while locked up.
Known satire site Cream BMP reported that the Atlanta rapper woke up to find his cellmate trying to lick the ice cream cone tattoo on his face while attempting to touch him inappropriately. Gucci then allegedly choked the inmate to death.
The rumor, while completely false, has been making the rounds on social media sites.
Gucci Mane himself sent out a tweet regarding the rumor, and you can check it out up top.
While Queens rapper 50 Cent hasn't been rapping as prolifically as he once did, he's still observing the game carefully, planning his moves accordingly. In a new interview with XXL, 50 Cent speaks on the patience required to enter new industries, his upcoming Animal Ambition project, and the difference between him and Kendrick Lamar.
Speaking about his relationship with Kendrick Lamar, and the artistic differences between himself and the TDE rapper, 50 Cent said "I love Kendrick," he exclaimed. "There's a huge difference in the two of us in our characters, and how we present ourselves. To me, Kendrick, he possesses the ability appear like he didn't know this was gonna happen. There's a level of confidence required in order to withstand the doubt... I had so much doubt prior to it actually working for me, that I would appear--at points-- a little arrogant. Kendrick will give you that energy like, 'this is so great, this is really happening."
50 Cent also commented on Kendrick's infamous "Control" verse, offering a slightly new take on the overexposed topic.
The rapper said he interpreted Kendrick's verse as saying "'the new music I've made is better than the music I've made in the past, and if you don't bring yours up to standard, you're gonna get left behind'" adding, "I don't think it can register as an attack, because he's worked with everyone he mentioned."
While Kanye West has been known to speak his mind in stream-of-consciousness speeches throughout his Yeezus tour, he wasn't having it when a fan interrupted him. One of Kanye's monologues was interrupted by a heckler last night in San Antonio, and the easily-excitable rapper showed no patience for the obnoxiously shouting fan.
The woman, who is reported to have been yelling for Yeezy to take off his mask throughout the show, was finally confronted by 'Ye during his now-traditional "Runaway" outro speech.
"Do I look like a motherf**king comedian?" said the rapper after motioning for the heckler to be removed from the venue. "Don't f**king heckle me," he exclaimed, which was met with cheers from the crowd. Of course, he made sure to reminded the offender who she was talking to before she left, declaring, "I'm Kanye motherf**king West!"
