Chief Keef’s “Wait” is Just as Trippy at Regular Speed

Hear Chief Keef’s bizarre new single from Bang 3.

September 18, 2014

Vocal manipulation in rap music has taken many different forms: the chipmunk soul samples of the early 2000s, the auto-tune soaked hook singers of today, and even deep pitched vocal tributes to the stylings of DJ Screw. This week, Chief Keef previewed a hyper-speed version of "Wait" where his voice sounds like his own version of a chipmunk sample. As bizarre as it sounded, it was kind of darkly adorable to hear lyrics like I told that bitch to wait delivered from a helium pitch: when dropped at regular speed, it's as much of a trippy listen as before. Hear the double-time version above and the regular below.
