Finally Rich Interscope**
Chicago teen Chief Keef’s debt to 50 Cent is pretty blatant on his debut album, from the rhymes about hard-chaws and gunplay to the title’s tip-of-the-cap to Fiddy’s own debut. But it was another rapper (and Chi Town native) who initially spread the word about Keith Cozart, and that was Kanye West who fell hard for I Don’t Like. That track is the centrepiece of Cozart’s debut, and it’s easy to understand the appeal of its hit-list of stuff the rapper doesn’t like delivered over producer Young Chop’s infectious, menacing synth rumble. The rest of the album, however, doesn’t possess the same pizzazz and is a collection of sullen, turgid, predictable raps (about women who’ve wronged him and the money he’s got in his back-pocket) delivered with little or no panache or emotion.
