Chief Keef just recently surprised fans when he dropped his long-anticipated album, Bang 3, two weeks ahead of its planned August 18 release date. However, Sosa still has plans for August 18, as he plans to use the date to release a whole new album, Bang 3 Pt. 2. As with the first Bang 3, the upcoming album will be released through FilmOn Entertainment, the company owned by billionaire Alki David to which Keef recently signed.

Days after dropping his first album in three years, Keef tweeted, "y'all ain't ready for the rest of bang 3." He soon shared an Instagram video, courtesy of FilmOn TV, that assured fans a part two was on its way, set to drop August 18.

Bang 3 was led by just one single, the Jenn Em-featuring "Ain't Missing You," a tribute to Keef's cousin, Big Glo, who was shot and killed in April 2014. The 14-track album also featured Mac Miller and A$AP Rocky, who guested on "Superheroes." Production was handled by Zaytoven, Glo Gang Productions and Keef himself.

Keef is also set on finally having his hologram perform an uninterrupted performance. The "I Don't Like" rapper is currently banned from performing in Chicago and according to Mayor Rahm Emanuel, his hologram is too. Keef recently attempted to bypass Chicago police by sending his hologram to perform a surprise set at Craze Fest, in the nearby suburb of Hammond, Indiana, though the show was shut down within minutes.

Emanuel is only adding fuel to Keef's fire, though. Since the latest shutdown, Keef and Alki have announced plans to make the spectacle even bigger by having the Keef hologram perform in three cities simultaneously. If his efforts ever succeed, all proceeds will go to the families of the late Glo Gang rapper Capo and one-year-old Dillan Harris, who was killed in the wake of Capo's murder.

Keef is also gunning for Emanuel's job.
