Diehard Chief Keef fans hoping to get their hands on his long-awaited sophomore Interscope Records album, Bang 3, can now officially start the project’s countdown.
Barring any setbacks, B3 will arrive on store shelves around mid-June.
Interscope executive Larry Jackson revealed on his Instagram that the LP will arrive in stores on June 10th. Expect some A-list collaborations including Kanye West. “My adopted son @chieffkeeffsossa is trying to meltdown my phone on a Sunday. Enough with the pranks! I’ve got a knuckle sandwich for you when I see ya. Bang 3 is officially coming on 6/10. Stop askin’ about it, pleaseeee!” (HHNM)
The Chi-Town hip-hop artist made an announcement on Twitter to drop an EP before the Kanye West-assisted studio project last month.

A few weeks prior, Keef’s manager Peeda Pan promised rap star Kanye West would appear on the Bang 3 album.
“Yeah, they working on a few songs for each other’s projects,” says Keef’s manager Peeda Pan, who was responsible for taking the flick. “Kanye will definitely be on Keef’s album on Bang 3.” After the photo circulated on the Internet, loyal followers of the two Chicago MCs were speculating if they were in the midst of recording something. Peeda Pan says Kanye initially wanted to connect with Keef and the two just clicked once again. “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.” (XXL Mag)
