Today it has been announced that Chicago rapper Chief Keef has been released from his label Interscope Records and is now a free agent. With all the legal troubles Keef has had throughout his young career the label decided to distance themselves and was not interested in dropping a new album with Sosa. With plenty of projects in the works such as Bang 3, Back From The Dead 2 and Thot Breaker, it seems Keef may just be fine however he just needs to stay out of trouble.
Bone Thugs-N-Harmony is planning on recording and releasing one final album and then selling it to the highest bidder similar to Wu-Tang Clan. Bone’s manager Steve Lobel detailed the group’s plans in a interview with HipHopDX. This is definitely interesting as the group thinks they can get $10 million dollars for the album, if not from a true Bone Thugs fan then from a rich person who buys expensive things just because. With Wu-Tang already pulling off the concept, Bone is simply stating they think they hold the same weight as the Wu in hip hop history. Take a look at the full interview when given the chance and be on the lookout for that new music to hopefully come this year.
After being sentenced in August to 39 months in federal prison for illegal possession of a firearm, it looks like Gucci is getting into some more trouble while already locked up. On Monday, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Tom Campbell sentenced Guwop to three years in prison for hitting an Army staff sergeant with a bottle at the Harlem Nights club in Atlanta on March 16, 2013. This newest aggravated assault sentence in Fulton County will run concurrently with the sentence he is already serving. Let’s just hope nothing else happens to Gucci while locked up and let’s also hope his catalog of tracks doesn’t dwindle anytime soon and we still get some new music.

Meek was originally sentenced to serve three to six months for a parole violation back in early July. Meek’s sophomore album, Dreams Worth More Than Money, was originally scheduled to be released in September, but with all the current legal issues that most likely will not happen.
