Riff: Chief Keef – “Less Speed”

Dec 5, 2017

You know I got the hammer even in my pajamas/He is not a member, we don’t want him around us/Smoking on this dope pack, how much you get a pound for?/I can get you real dope, stop lookin cause you found him

from Less Speed lyrics by Chief Keef

Despite the title, Keef is hitting the gas full throttle. He’s in the life and nothing can take him out of it; he’s packing heat at all times, even when eating his cereal and reading the funnies. Drugs are his product of choice, and he’s letting the world know that there’s no one better. As the source he’s entitled to certain liberties including gobs of cash, fast women and power.
