Chief Keef is at the Uptown on Saturday

Big Chief.
  • Big Chief.
Interscope signed Chief Keef to a big contract last year, when he was just 17 years old. His official debut recently arrived - it's called Finally Rich; pity that Keef had to wait so long for his millions - and it's a hard-ass dispatch from the increasingly scary streets of Keef's hometown of Chicago. At a time when hip-hop stars are absorbing other genres (R&B, EDM, indie rock) and dialing back the misogyny and violence, Keef counts as something of a holdout. His raps - cold and detached, and full of gunshots, ambulance sirens, "bitches," drugs and money - reflect the worldview of a young man without much in the way of role models. Perhaps Gucci Mane, who recently signed Keef to his Brick Squad label, will be a positive influence in this young man's life. But probably not.

Saturday, August 31, at the Uptown Theater. Gee Watts opens.
