Chief Keef found the beat for “Citgo” from his debut album, Finally Rich, on YouTube, by searching “Chief Keef type beat.” Citgo was produced by a then 18-year old polish producer Young Ravisu.
During a 2013 interview with SPIN, Young Ravisu revealed how Chief Keef found his production on YouTube:
“Chief Keef found the instrumental while sitting at his computer looking for some instrumentals for the Finally Rich album. He typed in ‘Finally Rich type beat’ and that is exactly what the snippet on my channel was titled. He posted on his Twitter, ‘Whoever made this beat, hit me up’ and shared the YouTube link. Then, there was an engineer working for Interscope Records, Chris Cheney, who got the track mixed. And then, Keef’s manager Idris messaged me about all the paperwork that was required.“ – Ravisu told SPIN.
