EDITORS’ NOTES

Chief Keef's Two Zero One Seven arrived after a yearlong break from the spotlight—an eon for the prolific rapper. But the album’s unconventional beats (mostly self-produced, although Lex Luger and Young Chop also contribute) and lyrical unpredictability suggest his creativity was resting, not exhausted. "Falling on the Floor," with its stabbing kick drums and layered effects, tumbles forward unexpectedly, suggesting a new level of sophistication to Keef's own production. His flow on "Check" weaves around the beat, while the stop-start rhythmic approach of "Dope Smokes" is sure to inspire hip-hop to come.
