Chief Keef and 50 cent were once on friendly terms. The G-Unit boss attempted to take Sosa under his wing and show him the ropes of the industry. Fif even dubbed the “Bang 3” rapper Hip Hop’s best new artist.
Sosa’s bad press in 2012 prompted 50 to step in with the hope of molding the teen rapper for the better.
“@ChiefKeef is my boy I’m a get everything back in place for him. They were gonna just throw him out,” he wrote on Twitter.
“I told them at intrescope its not him he just has the wrong people around him.”
But the two Interscope rappers’ relationship hit rock bottom after Sosa’s failed appearance at his own “Hate Being Sober” music video shoot, which 50 Cent paid for.
50 Cent didn’t let the newly signed Interscope artist Chief Keef off the hook for missing his video shoot, scolding the young artist on Twitter.
“Its not funny @ChiefKeef didn’t sell any records yet,they will pull the plug on him.SMSAUDIO,” 50 Cent wrote.
50 Cent warned the Chicago emcee his antics could possible get him dropped from the label.
Over a year has passed following the incident with Sosa neglecting to issue an official statement until now.
“@50cent u still mad About me not showin Up to da desert? N---- get high F--- dat song @wizkhalifa don’t give no f---- #GloUp,” Chief Keef wrote.
Chief Keef’s former manager Uncle Ro shed light on the matter months ago during an interview with Best Of Both Offices.
Chief Keef, he said, missed two flights to the video shoot during an interview with Best Of Both Offices.
“The label hooked it up and they set it up with Keef and they didn’t set it up with Keef’s team,” Manuel told Best Of Both Offices. “So, when it came time to fly out, he missed the first flight. Then he missed the second one. And then it was just like, you know, ‘Well we gonna come do it at another date, if that’s fine with you.’ It was nothing other than that, you know, all the rumors.”
Ro said Chief Keef isn’t used to scheduling video shoots.
Keef, he said, tends to schedule videos the day he wants to shoot.
“And a lot of people in the game looked at videos and do videos a lot different than we do,” Manuel said. “We just wake up one day and just feel like doing a video and we do it. Not you know, “We’re gonna do this on the 17th of this month, and we’re gonna do it at this time, and we’re gonna” — we haven’t shot videos like that. That’s not how we do it. It’s like, “Call up D. Gainz or call up such-and-such, let’s shoot something today.” We wasn’t ready to shoot nothing, we wasn’t in that mood, you know what I mean?”
50 Cent and Chief Keef have not spoken since the incident. 50 spoke with MTV News regarding Chief Keef’s talents and legal woes.
“I haven’t been in communication with him. I wish him the best,” he said.
50 Cent said there is no denying Chief Keef’s talent, saying, “he has something.”
“I think he has something, obviously. Even within the systems, no one has done anything for Chief Keef,” Fif said. “It’s still just his raw music, raw talent because he shot all his videos in the living room. He hasn’t had a music video that cost more than $4,000… his telephone could serve as a actual video camera. You know if you can record the right in-studio performances.”
50 Cent said Chief Keef’s life will continue to spiral out of control if he continues to live his life on the wrong track.
“It’s limitless opportunities out here now, so with Chief Keef it’s unfortunate to hear that he actually locked up,” he said. “I feel bad because I knew that was gonna happen. I know what continues to happen afterwards if you let is spiral out of control.”
