Weeks after publicly telling Chief Keef to hit him up, G-Unit head 50 Cent and the Chicago rap rookie have reportedly linked up to create some new music.
Fif broke the news of his new collaboration with Keef early Thursday (October 11).
"I did a new joint to night with @chiefkeef he got some heat.," Fif tweeted. (50 Cent's Twitter)
Last month, 50 revealed how close Chief Keef came to nearly getting dropped by Interscope Records.
"There was some energy there in the [Interscope] building, they was actually thinking about dropping him," 50 said in an interview. "I was like, 'D*mn you can't just like drop him.' That's what hip-hop culture is. It's an opportunity for you to make it from anywhere. If you from the bottom right now you could listen to this music that comes on, write something and put them cards back they gave you and deal yourself some new ones." (Hot 97)
A few days prior, Fif tried to decipher the now-defunct feud between Keef and rap star Lupe Fiasco.
"The things that Lupe said about Chief Keef, I don't think he said it about him," Fif said in an interview. "I think he said it about the actual element, the environment. But there's no way you don't personalize when a person is saying, you, talking about you. So when he responds by saying he's going to smack him or whatever it's because you keep attacking me and I'm sitting here and you attacking me and what am I supposed to do? [This is] from his perspective and Chicago had 158 homicides this summer. 38 of them were teens. They got to go through an investigation to make sure that was actually someone affiliated with Chief Keef. You can't just put that on him 'cause the boy made a diss song and he's out there. He's out there and active and you saw all those guns the boy had in that [recently pulled Pitchfork] video." ("The Ryan Cameron Show")
In early September, the New York rapper publicly extended his hand to the teenage hip-hop artist.
"@chiefkeef if you still In new York come see me @50cent," he tweeted September 5th. (50 Cent's Twitter)
