Riff: Chief Keef – “Kills”

Dec 5, 2017

I sell, I ship, I bag, I seal/I swag, that Gucci, that Louie, for real/Big knots in my Balmains, it is/The thing under this Louie, it kills

from Kills lyrics by Chief Keef

Back in the drug game and letting his competition know that he’s here to stay. He’s got his gun cocked and is ready to kill at a moment’s notice. He’s doing it all: selling, shipping, bagging and sealing. It’s also clear that he’s getting high off his own product. The endless circle of Chief Keef-isms are getting redundant and sloppy; a sleepy rendition of an all too familiar tune.
