It all started with the much talked about incident with Soulja Boy. If reports are to be believed, Soulja Boy’s label SOD and Chief Keefe’s label GBE were amicable affiliates till it emerged that Ballout had apparently stolen a chain of Soulja Boy. Soulja Boy’s claim was further fueled by a picture posted on Twitter of Ballout wearing the same chain although it was revealed that the seen chain was a fake one.
Tensions simmered even more with accusations by Soulja Boy that the chain was stolen from his home thus ending the GBE- SOD merger on a bitter note. Soulja Boy decided to avenge the loss of his chain by with an attempt to steal Tadoe’s watch.
In another controversy, Ballout locked horns with King Louie aka MUBU. The alleged Gangster Disciple affiliate and his crew got involved in a scuffle with Ballout and members of GBE. In the midst of the scuffle, one of the fans managed to snatch the chain that was allegedly stolen by Ballout from Soulja Boy.
With Chief Keefe, Ballout made a strong comeback in 2016 with their mix tape release, first since 2014. The mixtape album “Life of a Globoy” made strong statement with as many as 11 tracks. This major comeback album justified its stand and statements thereby giving him a decent 2016. It is for all to see by now that Ballout has all his success and identity owing to Chief Keefe.
With so much fiasco he has already been involved in, Ballout probably would like to explore the avenues of the uptown rap world devoid of controversies. For the moment, Ballout seems to be on his career’s break even!
