Chief Keef will fire up the Russell Industrial Center with Icewear Vezzo

Staff pick


  • RBC Records
A year after Chicago rapper Chief Keef announced on Twitter that he was planning on retiring, he released a 17-track mixtape followed by his third record, Dedication, which has been described as being a satisfying and balanced grab bag.

In keeping with his unmatched hustle, which resulted in nine released projects just last year, 23-year-old Keef is gearing up to release his second project of 2019, Almighty So 2. The first taste comes in the form of the laidback, ready-to-pounce single “Boost” — “Almighty don’t like nobody/ Got them nunchucks, ready to fight somebody/ Glock Tyson ready to bite somebody/ Baby said she quit, but now she back on molly.” Icewear Vezzo, Riff Raff, and Supakaine are also on the bill.

Chief Keef will perform at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, April 24 at the Russell Industrial Center; 1600 Clay St., Detroit; 313-872-4000; Tickets are $30.
