8. Chief Keef – Back From The Dead
It’s hard to gauge the exact impact of Keef’s Back From The Dead mixtape, but you know it’s MASSIVE when two out of five FSD submissions are from artists emulating Keef. From his live shows to his videos, Keef’s style has been bitten and chewed — his influence is literally everywhere.
With MoonDawg and Victoriouz in the driver’s seat, Keef’s Back From The Dead featured two of Chicago’s biggest records of 2012 — “3Hunna” and “I Don’t Like.” The videos for these records stand at four million and seven million on YouTube respectively. Keef’s no longer the most talked about new rapper in Chicago, he’s probably probably the most talked about new rapper in all of hip-hop. Love him or hate him, you’re going to have to get used to him, thanks to his recent deal with Interscope.
But a lions share of the props here have to go to Young Chop, who laced each and every beat on the project. Chop’s profile has also risen significantly since the project’s release, having worked with Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka and Soulja Boy. This mixtape didn’t bring Chicago back from the dead, but it definitely helped resurrect the new wave.
Favorite Tracks: “I Don’t Like,” “3Hunna,” “I Don’t Know Them”

As soon as I saw that “Castro” wasn’t the first mixtape I gave up hahaha
What the fuck does it matter that Castro and MMM were dropped close together. They were separate full CD’s. If quality of beats and rhymes count then both deserve to be top 10. Castro should be #1 hands down. Both were more cohesive than Durks joint. Yall a fucking disrespectful with this shit. Yall been lost my guys, but yall just lost me forever with this dumb ass shit. How do you rate this shit? Beats, rhymes, originality, cohesion? I’m waiting on an answer…If you had an answer i’d stick around but i know you don’t.
Read the disclaimer…1 project per artist
YALL SOME FUCK NIGGAZ LMAO HAHAHAHA ROTFL

This Castro was insane, it’s already in my top of 2012 free projects.
Rated R is dope record on that Jeremih mixtape. Ask any chick what their favorite song on that mixtape and they will tell you “Rated R”
10day shooda been #1 for sure, and yeah acid rap is gonna be huge.. castro should be #2 and drillmatic shoulda been up there and maybe even sloane peterson and community service shoulda been included
