Chief Keef’s “Love Sosa” finally goes platinum

“Love Sosa” was an undeniable hit. One that would come to define the drill boom of 2012. A song that helped catapult Chief Sosa into the stratosphere. And perhaps the song of Sosa’s career. It spawned a million copycats and influenced a generation of rappers. And now, it’s officially platinum.

Almost five years after its initial release, the RIAA just certified the Young Chop-produced hit platinum. Now, had the new streaming metrics been around when this track was released, “Love Sosa” would likely be multi-platinum by now. But better late than never, I guess?

A big congrats to Keef and Chop and all involved in making this record, because it’s truly one of the greatest pieces of art to come out of the Chi.

Update: Keef’s “I Don’t Like” has also been certified platinum

Chief Keef & Lil Reese are back together on “Loose”


A DJ Amaris Exclusive

With Chief Keef handling production, the original GBE crew returns. Keef and Reese. The two Chicago artists who owned 2012, and whose presence still looms over the entire hip-hop industry to this day. Influential is probably the best way to describe them. Their style, flair, delivery and flows have been bitten over and over again — and their fingerprints are all over modern rap. You should thank them now.

Tonight, they return with DJ Amaris for the world premiere of “Loose” — a return to form for both artists. Welcome back fellas. It’s time. Power in numbers, for real. Get “Loose” below.
