Keith Cozart (born 15 August 1995), better known by his stage name Chief Keef, is an American rapper and record producer from Chicago, Illinois. During his teenage years and while under house arrest, Keef's music videos were met with acclaim and his rising popularity led to a brief bidding war among labels. Ultimately, Keef signed a major record deal with Interscope Records and later signed with 1017 Brick Squad. Keeef also became the CEO of his own record label, Glory Boyz Entertainment, which later developed into Glo Gang. 

Keef's debut album, Finally Rich, was released in 2012, and featured singles "I Don't Like" and "Love Sosa". Since achieving commercial popularity, Keef has continued to experience ongoing legal issues. Despite being dropped from Interscope in late 2014, Keef continued self-releasing mixtapes through his Glo Gang label. Although Keef had originally planned what would become Bang 3 to be released as his second album, a then-track from the album, "Nobody", developed into its own project. Keef released Nobody as a full-length album in December 2014, while continuing to delay the often-pushed back Bang 3, which was ultimately released in 2015.
