50 Cent returns with another “lost file.”
A little backstory: in 2012, during his rapid ascent, Chief Keef was readying his major label debut album Finally Rich and was scheduled to shoot a music video for “Hate Bein’ Sober” with 50 and Wiz Khalifa. The Eif Rivera-directed video, however, never dropped when it was supposed to, because Keef never even showed up to the actual shoot.
“Chief Keef didn’t show up to his own video. I never saw anything like this on the first song,” 50 had tweeted back then. “It’s not funny. Chief Keef didn’t sell any records yet, [his label, Interscope Records] will pull the plug on him.”
Now, similar to last week, Curtis just decided to let loose the Keef-less video, because why not? “His first song was ‘I Don’t Like;’ that’s what made me see him,” 50 said to MSNBC’s Ari Melber. “He signed to Interscope because I was signed to Interscope ’cause me and Eminem was there, and then I wanted to work with him for that. I just liked him, his energy. And then, it turned into… ‘Hate Bein’ Sober.’ It was me, Wiz Khalifa and Chief Keef, but he never showed up to the video and me and Wiz shot the video.”
