New York rapper Saigon has vouched for Rhymefest in light of a new blog post publicly going at Interscope Records and other major labels for targeting artists like Chief Keef to make big bucks from.
Sai pointed out Fest's issues are bigger than Keef and focus more on the music industry as a whole.
"@RHYMEFEST wasnt dissing Chief Keef or whatever his name is, He sayin the same shit I was saying. Its not abt da puppet, its da puppetMASTER," he tweeted June 27th.
"We know the ills of our community is nothing to glorify at this point.. We know the horror of the guns, drugs and so on. Lets move on..."
"RHYMEFEST Yeah we up against the house negroes... Wont be easy"
"@RHYMEFEST They said they tiiiired of eating chitterlings out here in the field with us, The wanna eat some bacon with massa at the table"
"If I had a girl and a dude could bag her cause he had a fancy car or some jewels, I couldnt THANK him enough. Thats PRICELESS insight...." (Saigon's Twitter)
Fest also took to Twitter to clarify his publicized blog post.
"I'm now seeing all these blogs saying I dissed Keef, if all you see is a diss then it wasn't read thoroughly or interpreted correctly"
"My Blog http://donnienicole.com/2012/06/27/chi ... Chief Keef Is The Bomb comments on the system not the individual" (Rhymefest's Twitter)
In his "Chief Keef Is The Bomb" post, the Chicago rapper asks fans to inquire about the people backing the teenage rapper.
"Chief Keef is a "Bomb", he represents the senseless savagery that white people see when the news speaks of Chicago violence. A Bomb has no responsibility or blame, it does what it was created to do; DESTROY! Notice, no one is talking about the real culprits, the Bomb maker or the pilot who is deploying this deadly force (Labels, Radio Stations). Its easier to blame the bomb. Bombs are not chosen for their individual talents, they are tools used for collateral damage. To think of the persona of Chief Keef as a person would be the first mistake, he will more then likely come and go without us knowing much of anything about his personal pains, struggles, great loves and ambitions beyond rap. He is a spokesman for the Prison Industrial Complex. Every corporation is expected to grow at least 4% each quarter, many prisons are privately owned with stock being traded on the open market. If these corporations were to do commercials, jingles and promotions who would they hire? You got it, most of the main stream rappers we salivate over like Rick Ross the former correctional officer turned Drug Lord Boss rapper. Waka Flocka Flame gang bang "GO HARD IN THE PAINT" and Chief Keef the newest lottery pick in the "Get paid to destroy young minds, like we destroyed yours" Sweepstakes. [sic]" (Donnie Nicole)
Around mid-June, Keef officially announced a partnership with Interscope Records.
Chief Keef already told you what he don't like, but Interscope Records, that's that sh-- he do like. On Saturday (June 16) just hours before he took the stage at Birthday Bash with T.I. the Chicago upstart inked a deal with Jimmy Iovine's label and gave RapFix the exclusive. "I've been talkin' to a lot of labels, but I just noticed that Interscope got people like 50, Eminem," Keef told us after he got off stage performing his breakout track, "I Don't Like." The teenage spitter also revealed that he signed a publishing deal with Dr. Dre. Keef was recruited by a few labels including Cash Money and T.I.'s Grand Hustle. (RapFix)
