The name, 43B, stands for Forget Everybody, stressing the importance of individuality and autonomy—two factors that have played heavily into Keef’s path as an artist. The label will be helmed by Chief Keef’s long time manager, Idris Dykes who will be acting as co-CEO, as well as Sophie Kautz who has been appointed as the Head of A&R and Marketing. With the launch of 43B, Chief Keef is also proud to announce his first artist signing, the Atlanta-based rapper, Lil Gnar. 43B is a work of passion for Chief Keef and Lil Gnar is emblematic of the values and vision he hopes to foster with his new venture.

 

“43B has been a passion project of mine for over a year and I’m ready to give artists that are changing the game a label where they can really succeed. I’ve been independent for almost 10 years, so I want to pass on my knowledge of the industry to artists who are shifting the culture so they can make it to the top.”Chief Keef

“I’m incredibly excited about the formation of 43B. This partnership with BMG offers us the opportunity to bring the dynamic & forward-thinking ideas on ownership and individuality that Chef Keef has championed throughout his career into the infrastructure of our new venture. We’re thrilled to give the most innovative artists of the next generation the platform and resources to thrive in this industry.”Idirs “Peedapan” Dykes
