Born in 1995, Keith Cozart (Chief Keef) is a label owner and rap artist from Chicago, Illinois. Spawning from the poor east side, Cozart grew up with big musical dreams. He recently gained success with his high flying lyrics and party-driven beats. His sound his similar to current popular rappers Lil Durk, Lil Reese, Gucci Mane, and Migos. Cozart experienced a great deal of success following the laid-back stoner rap scene.
At the young age of 15, Cozart dropped out of high school and pursued his rap career. He spent the rest of his adolescence in and out of trouble. After being placed on house arrest, the rapper began posting songs on YouTube. Soon after, the videos began to gain a following in the local Chicago area. Popular musician, Kanye West noticed the up-and-coming talent and decided to remix one of Cozart’s songs.
After gaining notoriety in the rap scene, a bidding war for Cozart began between labels. Several companies tried, yet, only one succeeded. During the 2012 year, he signed with Interscope records and created his own label, Glory Boyz Entertainment. The contract was the first major deal for the young artist and anticipation for his debut album grew. Cozart began working on the record that featured popular artist 50 Cent, Wiz Khalifa, Rick Ross and other talented musicians. He released the album, Finally Rich in December and received good reviews. The record put Cozart on the musical map, making him a hot commodity in rap studios.
In 2013, Chief Keef joined with Gucci Mane and became the newest member of 1017 Brick Squad Records. He returned to the studio to work on his follow-up and released, Bang Part 2. The music didn’t do well with fans or critics and failed to increase his following. In October, he dropped another disappointing single. Cozart failed to draw attention to the new release and sales floundered. He followed by doing a short stint in jail for criminal involvement. Upon his release, he began working on his second full-length album.
In 2014, Cozart announced his drug addiction was resolved and he was ready to begin doing good work. He released his single, “Fuck Rehab,” in the spring and received modest reviews. Interscope records announced that his new album would be ready by summer. Chief Keef has no shows available at this time.
