Chief Keef Takes Aim at Rappers with 'Blonde, Pecan, Orange' Hair in Homophobic Rant
At his Wednesday night (Oct. 5) show at California's The Catalyst in Santa Cruz, Calif., rapper Chief Keef fired off shots at today's crop of rappers in a rant that featured a series of homophobic insults.
"I just wanna let everybody know. They say they want that old Sosa back. All that clown sh-t. 2017, I’m coming," says Sosa in a clip from the concert, without naming names. "All these f----t a-- n----s rapping today, shaking they booties and all that gay ass s--t ... All these f----t ass blonde head, pecan, orange… Let em finish shaking they ass. They can finish shaking booties. All that f----t ass s--t is ending in 2017. I swear on my dead homies. I finna come back and go crazy."
The Chicago rapper has kept quiet over the past few months since his contract with FilmOn was suspended last November. Keef (real name Keith Cozart) experienced drama prior to the suspension after cops shut down his L.A. hologram concert last September. FilmOn founder, Alki David, also expressed dismay with Keef and his management after they violated their contract by doing a tour without approval.
"Keef has a seven-album 360 deal with FilmOnTV. We are committed to making his career the best that it can be," David, told Billboard at the time. "We also have about 70 new songs recorded. A lot of these are major bangers. His management needs to understand that we could sell this package to someone else then they will have to deal [with] less loving attitudes."
Keef's mom, Lolita Carter, also shared an Instagram post last month with the faces of rappers Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Yachty and Playboy Carti, calling them out for allegedly biting her son's style. "Guess I got 3 more grand kids smh ------. It feels good knowing my son is a motivator. And inspirational to others. Cause somebody inspired him just like he inspired others."
