Chicago knucklehead, Chief Keef, serves fans some new Lex Luger produced music titled, “Save Me.” The exclusive comes courtesy of DJ Hustlenomics. “Save Me” almost sounds like it could be a reference track as the song only really showcases a few bars from Keef. For the most part, Keef simply repeats the phrase “aye” as he rides the bouncy and hard-hitting instrumental. There’s a few mumbled bars in there somewhere about his chain, swishers, beef in the streets and dope consumption. Take listen if you’re into that sort of thing.
