It looks like Chief Keef is set to recoup a landmark deal he passed up on four years ago. It was announced this week that Apple Music will be producing a documentary on Keef called The Story of Sosa: The Movie.
Many may be unaware that Chief Keef's sudden rise from the drill music niche of Chicago to the coffers of Kanye's catalog coincided with Apple Music's upstart streaming service, and that the company was prepared to give the controversial rapper it's first hip hop deal. Since the 2013 offer, Apple has predictably taken over its share of the industry, while Sosa's career has quieted down significantly. Still, there remains intrigue around his story and come December the public will get a glimpse into Chief Keef's world at around the time his debut, Finally Rich is celebrated on its 5-year-anniversary.
The documentary will reportedly cover the darkness of his early years coming out of the South Side of the Chi, from his incarceration in 2011 and his experience being shot at by police, to his multi-million dollar deal with Interscope and what kind of inspiration he serves as for Chicago rappers on the come up. Thanks to the man who discovered and signed Keef to that Interscope deal, Larry Jackson, The Story of Sosa: The Movie will fittingly bring Keef back around, with Jackson being a huge part of the project's production as an executive tagging along with Jimmy Iovine over at Apple.
