Chief Keef recently took to Instagram to reveal a photo of him working on his forthcoming mixtape Bang Pt. 3 with Kanye West. Now, Keef’s manager Peeda Pan has revealed that the project will actually be an album and confirmed that Ye will make a guest appearance.
Read the conversation he had with XXL below:
“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.”
In addition to this project Chief Keef is also working on the second installment of his Back From The Dead mixtape series. Listen to his latest release “All I Care About” produced by Young Chop here.
