Drill pioneer Chief Keef’s new label is making waves early on with a collaboration between the Chicago legend and his first signee Lil Gnar. Appearing for the first time together on the Atlanta rapper’s new single “Almighty Gnar,” the 43b duo wholeheartedly prove why they partnered up in the first place.
Blaring trumpets and machine gun-esque drums fill the classic, triumphant Sosa type instrumental as Keef carries the first half of the track with his signature flow, rapping: “Bitch, I’m from the Southside ain’t from Skokie / Call me Smokey / We ready if the opps think they can smoke me.” Despite a beat switch right before Gnar hops on the track, there is no change in pace as the Gnarcotic CEO matches his label head’s energy with ease.
“I feel like I’m Chief Keef in 2012 (Bang bang)
All these bitches say they love me, I pour Wocky by myself
I just want some toppy, told the thotty keep her pants on
Gave my youngin 20, told him slide with the shies on (Grrr)
Grown ass man, paid the bills, I keep the light on (Damn)”Lil Gnar — “Almighty Gnar”
Gnar and Chief Keef have been unstoppable on their own accords prior to “Almighty Gnar.” His third studio album, DIE BOUT IT, in May featured a slew of stars like Trippie Redd, Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Keed, Yung Bans, Lil Skies, Sosa and Ski Mask the Slump God — putting Gnar on a commercial incline he cultivated on his own.
Keef seems to be in the process of completing his first project with his newfound imprint, dropping off its lead single “Chief So” on Aug. 15. 43B (Forget Everybody) is proving to be a perfect business move for someone with as much credibility in the hip-hop industry as Chief Keef. His heavy involvement in Gnar’s promotion has been a statement to how he will be handling the organization going forward — using his influence to uplift both of their careers.
