Do you like Chief Keef? I've been a big fan ever since the release of his 2012 mixtape, Back From the Dead. Before that I really didn't understand any of his work. It was too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Back From the Dead where Chief Keef's presence became more apparent.

I think "I Don't Like" is the artist's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on distaste, at the same time it deepens and enriches the meaning of his preceding mixtapes.




Listen to the brilliantly produced hi-hats, snares, and 808 drums from Young Chop. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument.

In terms of lyrical craftsmanship and sheer songwriting, this mixtape hits a new peak of professionalism. Take the lyrics to "Monster." In this song, Chief Keef addresses the problem of abusive federal authority.




"Save That [expletive]" is the most moving rap song of the year about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock.




Chief Keef's solo efforts seem to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying in a narrower way, especially songs like "Love Sosa" and "True Religion Fiend".

But I also think that Chief Keef works better within the confines of his group, Glory Boyz Entertainment, than as a solo artist-and I stress the word artist. This is "My Lil [expletive]as," a great, great song, a personal favorite.

Not sure if serious or sarcasm.
