Hot! Chief Keef Signs With Interscope Records, Gets Publishing Deal With Dr. Dre

During the weekend’s Hot 107.9 Bday Bash, Chief Keef told MTV he’s just inked a deal with Interscope. Just hours before he took the stage at the Birthday Bash with T.I. the Chicago upstart inked a deal with Jimmy Iovine’s label.

“I’ve been talkin’ to a lot of labels, but I just noticed that Interscope got people like 50, Eminem,” Keef told us after he got off stage performing his breakout track, “I Don’t Like.”

Keef also revealed that he signed a publishing deal with Dr. Dre. Keef was recruited by a few labels including Cash Money and T.I.’s Grand Hustle. “I like him, he kinda remind me of us,” Baby told MTV News back in May. “He’s out the streets, I think he swagged up and I’m definitely talkin’ to his peopleand i’d like to see if we could get it to pop, see if I can get him to be down with the team.”

During that same month Kanye West remixed Keef’s “I Don’t Like” along with Pusha T, Jadakiss and Big Sean. Bad Boy and Def Jam were also rumored to have approached the young rapper. With all of the interest he drew in the end chose the Scope. “They was talkin’ good to me,” he said of Interscope. “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.” Source: Mtv
