It looks like Chief Keef has been dropped like a bad habit.
Allhiphop.com reports that Interscope Records has parted ways with the infamous rap star.
Keef, whose real name is Keith Cozart, tweeted that he’d been released from the record label due to difficulties handling the release of his upcoming album, “Back to the Dead 2.”
The rapper took to Twitter to announce plans to go “full-indie,” as “100 percent of everything goes to me now.”
He added “Jimmy (Iovine) it was cool splitting it with u But u gave yo spot up.”
According to Allthehiphop.com, Cozart’s move to Los Angeles (where Interscope is located) pushed things over the edge.
The website attributes an anonymous source saying that Cozart’s team tried to hold Interscope accountable, but the label didn’t seem interested in dropping a new album.
In 2013, Cozart signed a contract with Interscope, that if it reached fruition, would have paid him over $6 million.
Cozart has had a long history with the law. Drug offensives and stints in rehab may have contributed to move made by Interscope.
He was arrested in March in suburban Highland Park, where he was living at the time, on charges of a suspended license and driving under the influence of marijuana.
