Lupe Fiasco: “Chief Keef scares me”
Young Chicago rapper Chief Keef has been blowing up, and though he’s gotten love from some veteran rappers like Kanye, Pusha T, and Jadakiss, others, specifically Lupe Fiasco “don’t like” him. In a video posted to FakeShoreDrive (via HipHopDX), Lupe said:
Chief Keef scares me. Not him specifically, but just the culture that he represents. Specifically in Chicago. And I don’t speak this about any other city because I’m not from there. But like my family lives in Chicago. So my nephews, my cousins, my friends, and my peoples they all in those hoods that he represents. When you drive through Chicago…The hoodlums, the gangsters, and the ones you see killing each other. And the murder rate in Chicago is skyrocketing and you see who’s doing it and perpetrating it, they all look like Chief Keef.
