Chief Keef has finally found a home. After being recruited by labels such as Cash Money Records, Grand Hustle, and more recently, Young Jeezy’s CTE imprint, the Chicago upstart has decided to sign with Jimmy Iovine and Interscope Records. Minutes before hitting the stage Saturday night as a guest of T.I.’s at Atlanta’s Hot 107.9 Birthday Bash, he spoke with MTV’s Rob Markman on his new label situation and signing a publishing deal with Dr. Dre.
“”I’ve been talkin’ to a lot of labels, but I just noticed that Interscope got people like 50, Eminem. They was talkin’ good to me, 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.”
UPDATE: FakeShoreDrive have revealed more details about Chief Keef’s deal which includes a multi-movie film deal through Interscope’s motion picture division, his own label deal for his GBE imprint, and own line of Beats By Dre headphones, “Beats By Keef.”
