Last year, Chief Keef announced that he was retiring from rap music. The year that followed was his quietest since bursting onto the scene back in 2012 with Finally Rich. Having released projects pretty much non-stop from mid 2011 all the way until late 2015, it seemed for a while that he had called it quits for real. Thankfully, that wasn't the case, proving this year that he wasn't ready to stop just yet. Releasing Two Zero One Seven on January 1, he's back to his prolific self.
In the months that followed, the former hip-hop innovator dropped Thot Breaker in June before dropping The W in September. Now he's back with his third studio album, his first since 2015's Bang 3. The new album, Dedication, is a pretty low-key affair all things considered, only featuring three vocal contributions. Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Lil Yachty, and Tadoe all appear, but Dedication is Keef's album through and through.
Atop some often bizarre sounding production, Keef seems to be in no rush to prove himself, simply opting to make it all sound as effortless as possible. It's definitely not for everyone, but fans of Keef will be delighted to hear his return to consistency with Dedication.
