Chief Keef Dropped By Label?

Apparently, Interscope Records has dropped the drill rapper from it's roster.

According to AllHipHop, the rapper was let go some weeks ago. Keef signed to the label in the summer of 2012 much after the success of his "I Don't Like" going viral. After being on the label for a few months, the rapper released his debut album Finally Rich in December 2012 (debuting at #29 on the Billboard 200 and selling 50,000 copies in the first week in US sales) with the singles "Love Sosa", "Hate Bein' Sober" and "I Don't Like". But since then we haven't heard any hints of a follow-up and never got any videos other than the original "I Don't Like" video. Perhaps the label got fed up with the drug and legal issues with the young drill artist.

Seems as though the young rapper is going the independent route, not sure how this will effect his upcoming planned projects like Bang 3.
