Chief Keef has started a new label, 43B, which stands for Forget Everybody. Lil Gnar is the first artist to sign with the new label.  Chief Keef has been in the game for over a decade now and has been independent for most of his career.  He believes he has obtained the knowledge to pass down to up-and-coming artists.  43B is under RBC Records/BMG with Chief Keef’s manager being the head of the label. RBC Records have always worked with drill rappers, so this partnership won’t be anything new for them.

43B’s First Signee

Congrats to Atlanta native, Lil Gnar, on being the first artist signed to 43B!  Lil Gnar is most known for his song “Death Note” and “Drop Top Benz” with Lil Skies.  He just released his project, Die Bout It on May 20.  On the 18-track project, he has guest features from Tory Lanez, Yak Gotti, Trippie Redd, Chief Keef, and a posthumous verse from Lil Keed.  Lil Gnar had a close relationship with Lil Keed as he describes both of their paths to get into the music business on their song, “No Reason”.  The video was just released a few weeks ago as well.  Not only can Lil Gnar rap, but he is very versatile.  He is also known to be a fashion designer as well as a skateboarder.  Chief Keef has some talent on his hands!

Most Influential Rapper?

Chief Keef was trending on Twitter last week in the 2010s debate.  Fans went to the social media platform to debate which rappers was the most influential from 2010-2019.  Of course, Nicki Minaj, Drake, and Kendrick Lamar were at the center of the conversation, but the Chicago native’s name was thrown in there as well.

Fans claim that Chief Keef was head of the drill movement sparking young rappers in New York to adapt the sound.  Chief Keef was very busy in the 2010s.  He released a slew of mixtapes from 2010-2012 before his infamous hit, “I Don’t Like”.  Kanye West and others jumped on it for the remix, which gained Chief Keef more popularity.  In 2012, he released his debut album, “Finally Rich” which included hits like “Love Sosa” and “Hate Bein’ Sober.”  Fans do have a point when mentioning Chief Keef’s name in this debate.  His influence cannot be denied.
