Chief Keef Says He’s Retiring, But Do You Believe Him?

A few days ago, Sosa took to Twitter for a rare conversation with some of his fans and followers. After a question from a fan asking “did you forget you were a rapper ?? You wayuyyyy behind on music drop something,” Sosa responded that he was set to retire because so many rappers in the game are biting his style. I’m sure the recent leaks aren’t helping matters.

I agree with Keef, wholeheartedly. No, not about the retiring part, but about the amount of relevant rappers in the game who’ve bit his style completely. Sosa stands as one of the most influential rappers of the past five years, and I don’t believe he gets his just due. His style has been snatched, bitten, reworked and repurposed, with little to no credit. I’m sure that infuriates him. During peak Keef hotness in 2012, so many people wrote him off as a flash in the pan, only to see his relevance take over the game four years later. His presence looms, and he needs to see some receipts.

Whatever the case, we don’t suspect Keef is really retiring — he records too much music and it’s part of his everyday life at this point. But has he lost love for the game at this point? I’m sure. But after watching failed and bailed retirements from Jay Z, Ma$e, Master P, Too $hort and a dozen more rappers, we know that no rappers actually retire. It’s impossible.

Chief Keef Addresses Recent Music Leaks, Threatens Those Responsible

Screen Shot 2016-03-01 at 4.37.22 PM

If you follow Chief Keef and most of the websites that consistently post his music, then you’ve surely noticed that a ton of unreleased Sosa music has flooded the internet over the past few days. So much, in fact, that one site managed to create a 16-track mixtape (The Leek Vol. 5,) Today, another half dozen songs sprung a leak.

Over the years, countless unsanctioned Sosa tracks and mixtapes have trickled out, but he’s never addressed the issue publicly — that is until today. In the IG post you see above, Keef blames close friends and associates for the bootlegging, and claims he’s beefed up security digitally. He also has some harsh words for blogs and hosting sites. It appears it’s on site when you see Sosa.

Hopefully, this post nips it in the bud and Sosa removes the squares from his circle. There’s no telling how much music he’s lost over the years.

Over the past few days, a mixtape worth of loosies from Chief Keef have sprung a leak. He must have an open source, or the Glo Gang stans are on his ass. Either way, a slew of new Sosa material has trickled out onto the internets.

Thankfully, they’ve all been carefully packaged together in this new mixtape titled The Leek 5 — which includes 15 new joints. 808 Mafia, Metro Boomin, DPBeats and 12 Million all show up to participate.
