Eight years ago, Chief Keef was the hottest rising star in the game. He went from doing songs with Soulja Boy to having “I Don’t Like” dominating social media. The Kanye West remix put Chief Keef on the map, leading to a bidding war.
Chief Keef would go onto have his singles, “Kobe,” and “Love Sosa” become hit singles. The first of those two singles was named for the iconic NBA player, Kobe Bryant. At that time, Kobe’s Lakers were still considered contenders.
Sadly, the year of 2012 would be Kobe’s last as a contender, as the next four Lakers’ years would end in obscurity, as Kobe Bryant had one last big stage moment.
