Chief Keef believes he's the OG of drill music
Chief Keef shares the belief with many that he's the reason drill music is now listened to on a worldwide scale. The Chicago rapper and Spotify celebrated the 10th anniversary of his debut album, Finally Rich, last week with a show in New York, his top streaming city on the platform.
In an interview during the Spotify event, Keef was asked “how does it feel to have such a massive impact” at only 27, to which he replied, “I love it. It's hard though cause it ain't really what I did it for though. I just did cause I love this shit. It just ended up being like that. I f*ck with it though. That's hard though. You know, it's a lotta people that really grew up on me and just f*ck with me.”
The interviewer then asked Sosa how he feels about many people calling him “the godfather of drill music,” and he quickly responded, “I am. It's real.” After he was asked to repeat his declaration, the “Love Sosa” hit-maker added, “I am, it's real. I'm a Godfather, You know that. I'm the founder. I started this shit. We all know that. The whole world know that. Everybody. Paris, London, Japan, China USA.”
