Chief Keef Signs With Interscope Records, Gets Publishing Deal With Dr. Dre
Chief Keef makes a jump to the majors.
Speculation was rampant in recent weeks a Chief Keef revealed he was in talks with three labels about a record deal.
Initially a viral sensation, Keef's "I Don't Like" was remixed by Kanye West, and is now burning up the airwaves. The track caused controversy as Young Chop, who produced the original cut of the song, disapproved of West's remix, drawing the ire of Pusha T in the diss track "Exodus 23:1."
Now, Keef has revealed to MTV's RapFix that he has chosen a new home: Interscope Records.
"I've been talkin' to a lot of labels, but I just noticed that Interscope got people like 50, Eminem," said the young rapper, who revealed that he also signed a publishing deal with Dr. Dre.
Ultimately, it was Interscope's way of addressing Keef that won him over. "They was talkin' good to me," he said. "They was talkin' like I was talkin' and I liked that. All these other labels, I was talkin' to 'em, but it's time anyway for me and I'm goin' with Interscope."
