Doesn’t Attend Video Shoot with 50 Cent and Wiz Khalifa—November 16, 2012
50 Cent took to Twitter to call out Keef for not attending a Las Vegas video shoot with him and Wiz Khalifa for the single “Hate Being Sober.” “It’s not funny @ChiefKeef didn’t sell any records yet, they will put the plug on him,” he tweeted. During an appearance on Big Boy’s Neighborhood radio show weeks later, 50 Cent said that he was a fan of Keef because he comes “directly from the environment,” but that he may be getting too big for his britches. “I talked to them on the telephone…two or three times that day and said, ‘Yo, you’ve gotta come,’” 50 said. “You know how when you’ve got momentum and you feel like Michael Jackson for a minute? Like, you’re ‘the one?’ He’s so hot in his circle, he thought he could actually do that.” He advised that dropping the song around the album release was unwise. 50, meanwhile, used the time to shoot a video for his song “United Nations,” and later tweeted that he convinced Interscope to keep Keef on the roster.
