Interscope Deal
In June 2013, Chief Keef signed a potentially very lucrative contract with Interscope Records. The deal would cover three albums for Keef and could potentially be worth as much as $6 million (before taxes, managers fees, lawyers and expenses). As part of the contract, Interscope paid Chief a $440,000 advance plus $300,000 to cover recording expenses to produce a commercial version of "Finally Rich". He also received a $180,000 advance for his record label Glory Boyz Entertainment and $200,000 to cover record label overhead expenses. There is also a stipulation that would allow Interscope to cancel the deal if "Finally Rich" did not sell 250,000 copies by December 2013.
