In hopes of uncovering the truth behind Chicago’s flashiest young rapper, we bring you Chapter 58: FRANKSOSA—an exploration of everything Chief Keef from the eyes of his fans. With 1.5 million current Instagram followers and nearly a billion views spanning across his YouTube channel, the Almighty Sosa has made his musical career multidimensional by making his catchy lyrics, raw music videos, and problems with the law visible for all to see through his impervious social media presence.
Taking the focus slightly off music and more towards the art world, his latest point of interest, we bring you a backstage pass into Keef’s personal aesthetic and artistic relevance, which we showcased through acrylic portraits of the rapper painted by Bill da Butcher, digital prints from design partner Casimir Spaulding, a forward written by Paper Magazine’s literary guru Carlo McCormick, and much, much more.
And the book wouldn't be complete without a capsule collection, so expect to buy some tees and hoodies covered with some of Keef’s favorite originals from the book—stay tuned to FRANK151 for more.
