The bidding war is over. Up-and-coming Chicago rapper Chief Keef has signed with Interscope Records after being approached by labels such as Grand Hustle, Cash Money Records and Young Jeezy’s CTE imprint. Before entering the stage Saturday night as a guest of T.I.’s at Atlanta’s Hot 107.9 Birthday Bash, he opened up to MTV about his new label home and signing a publishing deal with Dr. Dre.
“I’ve been talkin’ to a lot of labels, but I just noticed that Interscope got people like 50, Eminem. ”They was talkin’ good to me. They was talkin’ like I was talkin’ and I liked that. All these other labels, I was talkin’ to ‘em, but it’s time anyway for me and I’m goin’ with Interscope.”
