Year: 2012

Chief Keef is just 16 years of age, yet he's already made one of the hottest songs of 2012 with “I Don't Like.” He also happens to hail from the great city of Chicago, a place that boasts a plethora of talented artists. Yet not everyone is welcoming Keef with open arms. Chitown's own Rhymefest took issue with the content of Keef's lyrics, and released his thoughts in an editorial for Windy City blogger Donnie Nicole where he wrote Keef “represents the senseless savagery that white people see when the news speaks of Chicago violence.” Ouch. Can't a young rapper get money anymore?
