Kerwin Frost sat down with Chief Keef for the 12th episode of “Kerwin Frost Talks”. This has to be one of the longest interviews Keef has done, especially in recent years and provides a really candid insight into where Keef is at right now and what it was like for him during his meteoric rise to fame as a 16 year-old kid from Chicago. Frost and Sosa touch on a number of topics both past and present with Keef clearly in the mood to talk with Kerwin. The pair discuss Sosa’s life in detail, touching on topics like Fatherhood and Keef’s childhood memories of Chicago and his gravitation towards music as well as reminiscing on his now legendary earlier music videos shot straight from the house. 

It’s crazy to think how Chief Keef came on to the scene. After dropping “Dont Like” back in 2012 he pretty much became an over night star with perhaps only Soulja Boy achieving such rapid success as a young artist before him at that time. “Dont Like” became a smash hit around the globe and was quickly picked up by Kanye West and released as a remix on Good Music’s “Cruel Summer” album. The remix featured verses from Pusha T, Big Sean and Jadakiss which only added fuel to the fire for Keef and his entrance into the scene and formed the start of Keef’s continuing career in music.

I really enjoyed watching this, I have never really seen an interview with Chief Keef where anything of real interest has been discussed so to see Kerwin pull so much out of him in the near hour and a half run time is super impressive. I almost feel like Kerwin is shocked and a little nervous at how friendly and open Sosa is being with him in the first 15 to 20 minutes but Kerwin really falls into his groove and brings the most out of Keef after that. This has been a really great series so far, I particularly liked the episode with Ian Conner and A$AP Rocky and the more recent episode with Designer Jeremy Scott.
