Emerging onto the scene in 2012 with a “bang bang,” Chief Keef’s arrival changed the face of rap music for the following decade. Celebrating 10 years of his culture-shifting classic debut album, the multi-platinum rapper-producer shares Finally Rich (Complete Edition).
Originally released on December 12, 2012, the seismic impact of Finally Rich sparked waves that continue to reverberate throughout popular music a decade later. The album’s innovative soundscapes, crafted in part by Chicago sound architect Young Chop, combined with Keef’s mutated melodies and off-kilter turns of phrase to create a massive moment for the then-ascendant genre of drill.
The landmark album set the stage for the Chicago-born genre’s global takeover, and Keef’s unapologetic energy and singular vocal style influenced an entire generation of rappers (an incomplete list of his admirers includes 21 Savage, Lil Uzi Vert, Playboi Carti).
Adding 7 previously unreleased tracks, including a collaboration with Wiz Khalifa on “Rider,” the complete version of Finally Rich is available everywhere now via Interscope Records.
