In a statement David tells us, “Chief Keef’s contract was suspended 2 weeks ago because his management went off and did a tour without our approval. Not happy with the direction they are taking him.” David feels Keef’s management is limiting the growth of his career and potential. Through their deal with the rapper, FilmOn wants to launch Chief Keef’s career further than the circuit his management team currently keeps him in. “Same sh*t over and over,” he says. “Limiting his appeal to a wider audience and I’m not saying he should sell out, just be more prolific.”
What really has the 47-year-old mogul upset is who Keef is associating with in his music. “[HE] ends up making unsanctioned videos with child sex traffickers,” he told us referring to his ‘Let It Blow” video featuring Las Vegas rapper D. Flores. The Glo Gang collaborator was recently charged for allegedly kidnapping and forcing a 15-year-old girl into prostitution and has his bail set at $250,000.
Although, the suspension has not been lifted and the company has decided to repo his BMW i8 while he was on tour, David still believes in Chief Keef’s stardom and understands it’s the people around him that led to his current label restrictions, “I don’t blame Keith – I blame his shady management – Keith is a f****** rap superstar.”
