Chief Keef Becomes A 2-Time Platinum Selling Artist

Finally a good news.

2012 was a huge year for Chief Keef. Only 16 years old at the time, Keef dropped two big hits — "I don't Like" and "Love Sosa" — tracks that have finally gone platinum this week.

In order to achieve the RIAA certification of a record has to move 1,000,000 copies to go platinum, and March 22, 2017, Keef finally crossed the line with "Love Sosa" and did so a few days before "I do not Like".

Young Chop, who produced both tracks, which celebrates the recognition for "Love Sosa" on Instagram.

The good news comes after a spate of bad news for the 21-year-old Chicago rapper who was dropped by Interscope, before a subsequent deal with FilmOn also collapsed after Keef allegedly embarked on an unauthorized tour.

The difficult times not only limited to Keef the music, with the police confirms that at the age of 18 years, Keef was evicted from his home in Highland Park, Illinois. He has also had his fair share of legal problems, after having been in prison for several charges related to drugs and weapons.

However, Chief Keef platinum certifications come at a time when the world needs to be reminded of his talent and of his youth. He stays in the game with the launch of Two Zero One Seven mixtape at the top of the year and is one of the many artists featured on Mike WiLL Made-It-Ransom 2, tomorrow (March 24).
