The album is a classic in modern rap music, receiving near-universal acclaim and inspiring a generation of MCs both in his hometown of Chicago and across the country. Pitchfork wrote, “Chief Keef’s major label debut stays true to the mixtapes that got him noticed, and proves that the young Chicago rapper has more potential than his detractors might have hoped.”

The Smoker’s Club Fest, set to be hosted at the Glen Helen Amphitheater in San Bernardino, will also feature Schoolboy Q, Wiz Khalifa, 2 Chainz, Ferg, Joey Bada$$, Flatbush Zombies, Dom Kennedy, Yung Lean, Lupe Fiasco, Rico Nasty, Wale, and more.
