Chief Keef has announced what appears to be the official release date of his long-awaited sophomore album “Bang 3.”
Sosa made the announcement when promoting “Back From The Dead 2” and his November project “Mansion Music.”
The Interscope artists posted a cover art for the latter project onto his IG account with a caption, reading, “#BFTD2Halloween #MansionMusickNov28th #B3Christmas.”
Sosa’s much-anticipated project has received numerous release dates to fans’ dismay. The project was supposed to drop in late September, according to Glo Gang member BallOut.
Ball made the announcement in behind the scenes footage of Sosa’s “Superheroes” music video featuring A$ap Rocky.
“New album finna drop ‘Bang 3’ Sept. 30,” the “Welcome To BallOut World” rapper said.
Chief Keef revealed his album’s tracklist through IG in late July.
“I know y’all n-ggaz been waitin for dis BANG 3!!! Sittin up here at Interscope wit @thelarryjackson lockin down this album trackslistin. Take it easy on dat n-gga ..we got dat shiiiiiiiit! [Fire] Droppin single on my birthday,” the caption on his post read.
Sosa’s upcoming album contains 17 tracks, including lead single “F*ck Rehab” featuring Blood Money.
Sosa initially stated he would drop the project on his Aug. 15 B-day.
“We ain’t forgot about dis BANG 3 s---!!! I’m finna go back n da studio n finish dis sh*t off this week. Love to my n*gga at Interscope @thelarryjackson 4 holdin me down. Take it easy on him, lol.

Sosa’s Interscope A&R Larry Jackson told fans the album would drop on June 10.
“My adopted son @chieffkeeffsossa is trying to meltdown my phone on a Sunday. Enough with the pranks! I’ve got a knuckle sandwich for you when I see ya. Bang 3 is officially coming on 6/10. Stop askin’ about it, pleaseeeee! Cc: @garymkelly,” the caption on his post read.
Chief Keef was expected to drop his project on March 3. Sosa issued a statement the following day, stating the project was not complete.
“Today I got a Call From The Label, Now they saying B3 Ain’t done yet. Now I gotta go all da way back to Cali to record,” he wrote.
“But I apologize, I got something for y’all!” he added.
Sosa then announced he would be dropping a “Bang 4” EP in the meantime.
Sosa leaked the project’s cover art on Twitter, writing, “Bang4 The EP Bfo B3.”
He would later reveal he is also dropping a project titled “Thot Breaker.”
Sosa’s “Bang 3” is reportedly set to feature production from Kanye West.
A photo surfaced in early February showing Chief Keef and Kanye West hard at work.
Sosa’s manager Peeda Pan shared this image and confirmed via IG the two were working on “Bang 3.” He captioned his post, “#Gang” and commented, “#Bang3.”
Sosa shared this image to his IG account, writing, “Almighty and Yeezus.”
“Late night Money,” he added in another photo.
Chief Keef promised “old Sosa” to fans to generate buzz. And not to mention, his claim that the project would “raise the murder rate,” according to an IG post.
“Bang 2 And Almighty So On ITunes Right Now But Bang 3 No Lie Y’all Really Don’t know How crazy Im goin #ImFinnaRaiseTheMurderRateUp
“If I’m Lien I Can Get Killed right Now this S--- Is So f----- hardcore #ThatOldSosa #bang3 N----- Better Be Scared,” the captions on his IG posts read.
Chief Keef’s manager Peeda Pan regarded the 18-year-old rap phenom as “so f*****g creative” during an interview with XXL Magazine.
Pan said “Bang 3” will show Sosa’s growth as an artist.
“I think people will hear his progression in addition to those elements that they wanted to hear from Finally Rich and Back From The Dead,” Pan told XXL. “That s**t is all present in his new joint.”
Sosa boasted “Bang 3” had 50 songs, including, “Save Me,” “Either Way,” F*ck Rehab” and “Bang Like Chop.
