Critical Praise:
Praise for Almighty So 2:

“Best New Music. The long-teased sequel to his cult-classic mixtape is a highlight in the Chicago rapper’s career, bringing the first-wave drill he helped popularize screaming into the future.” – Pitchfork

“There’s a strong case to be made for Keef as the most influential rapper of his generation. Throughout Almighty So 2, we get both the bravado of Keef stepping into that role and the recognition of the toll of success.” – Rolling Stone

“Riddled with realness and DIY-type production – the rapper self-produced nearly the entire album – the 16-track project is a classic Keef offering and feels like a natural follow-up in the Almighty So series, despite arriving over a decade later.” – HYPEBEAST

“The album is out, and it’s really, really good.” – Stereogum

More praise for Chief Keef:

Rolling Stone’s 200 Best Hip-Hop Albums of All-Time (Finally Rich, #32)

“There is still nothing that feels like ‘Love Sosa,’ the breakout single from a then 17-year-old Chief Keef, from his debut album, Finally Rich. The Chicago rapper’s melodic, hard-nosed anthem shook the foundation of hip-hop. The kids were taking control in a way that the genre had never seen.” – Rolling Stone

“There’s no denying the influence of Keef’s menacing production, straightforward verses, and early D.I.Y. rap ethos on the generation of hip-hop artists that has followed.” – Pitchfork

“The influence and staying power of Chief Keef really cannot be overstated.” – The FADER

About Chief Keef
Uncountably prolific, yet never seeming to run out of ideas, Chief Keef is embarking on a new chapter of his storied career. In 2022, ten years after he stormed into the game and changed it forever at only 16-years old, he announced the formation of 43B, his new record label formed in conjunction with BMG, and signed its first artist, Lil Gnar. The two 43B artists combined for the single “Almighty Gnar,” a beat-shifting banger, and reconnected in 2023 for the fiery “PB&J,” which also featured Young Nudy. In December 2021, the rapper shared his critically acclaimed project 4NEM, home to viral single “Yes Sir” and titanic opener “Bitch Where,” prominently used in the fourth season of FX’s Atlanta and recently included in Pitchfork’s Best Singles of 2022 list, and founded his new Web3 venture DigiGlo. With Almighty So 2 out now and more milestones to achieve, Chief Keef plans to make 2024 his own. Stay tuned for much more.
