There’s a strong possibility that Chief Keef is dissing Bobby Shmurda on his new “Beetlejuice” track, released Wednesday (Sept. 24). Shmurda, 20, has garnered comparisons to the Chicago teen because of their closeness in age and rap rise.
Even though both copped major label deals off songs that blew up online, Keef sounds like he’s already done hearing about their similarities. “I still’ll come and rob you for your kilo/And you know you ain’t catch no body ’bout a week ago,” he raps on “Beetlejuice.”
Sosa didn’t have to name Shmurda outright, the reference to his “Hot N---a” single makes it pretty clear that the line is directed at the Brooklyn rapper. But if he is upset, perhaps that frustration shouldn’t be pointed in Shmurda’s direction. 50 Cent was actually the one who compared the two. The leader of G-Unit told Hot 97 flat out that the Epic Records recording artist “reminds” him of Keef. “It’s the same energy," he said of “Hot N---a” versus Keef’s “I Don’t Like” single. “It’s a New York version of it.”
Looking at both careers, Fif’s statement was accurate. Shmurda is riding his own wave at the moment, similar to what Keef went through about two years ago. Since Keef, 19, is technically more tenured in the music business than Shmurda, maybe he can give him some pointers instead of [allegedly] throwing shots.
