Chief Keef’s next mixtape Bang Pt. 3 was supposed to come out in March but the team has decided to convert it into an official album. It will now serve as the Chicago rapper’s sophomore album and one of the guests who is confirmed to appear is Kanye West.
Chief Keef’s manager Peeda Pan confirmed the news to XXL:
“Yeah, they working on a few songs for each other’s projects. Kanye will definitely be on Keef’s album on Bang 3. He reached out and its great for someone like Kanye from Chicago and where he stands in the game to be able to reach out to that younger generation of Chicago and for them to be able to work,” he says. “I’ll just put it to you like this: They have several new songs. They’ll be collaborating and they’ll be released this year. There’s just certain things you and that person will have in common and you can identify that person’s upbringing and their struggle,” he says. “So I think, Kanye sees a lot of Keef’s rebelliousness in himself and he identifies with it. It’s also a mentor kind of thing. More musically for someone like ‘Ye versus just being the day-to-day. But still, just to be able to have that presence [and] being involved in a project.”
“Bang 3 is coming. Instead of it being a mixtape, it’ll be a full album. We may be looking to push the date back. I am very, very proud of what he’s done musically.”
