Video After The Jump
At one point 50 Cent attempted to take Chief Keef under his wing and teach him the ins and outs of the music industry. In the end the "I Don't Like" rapper decided to do things his own way.
"The Chief Keef project is the 50 Cent project. It's the same project," 50 Cent told Jenny Boom Boom earlier this year. "He's completely influenced by his environment, but that's the nightmare. I actually was attracted to the Chief Keef thing because I was like, I can help him. I know what to do. He didn't listen, so I wouldn't actually offer (what was said) to the general public. To reach out to him and actually talk to him, I did that. He's a man, a young man. My son is a year younger than him. So when I'm talking to him, he don't have to take it. I'm not his father, that's his business."
Keef's producer, Young Chop, gave his opinion on the situation.
"[Chief Keef] is 17, so he's really not paying attention at this point," Chop told Vlad TV. "He doing what he wanna do. Some of the stuff Keef do, it actually works for him. You can't stop what a person's feeling. Like giving advice. You can give him advice, he might listen or he might don't."
Although Keef didn't listen to what the G-Unit mogul had to say, Young Chop did.
"I had a long conversation with him in the studio," Chop said of his talk with 50. "He was just telling us about the business and how to play it. He was telling us the whole runaround. I found myself running into those problems that he was saying and I found my way to get out of them. Because I was really listening, paying attention. 50 Cent, he a cool dude."
Chop goes on to give his take on the "Hate Being Sober" video shoot. 50 Cent and Wiz Khalifa showed up, but Keef didn't.
