LOS ANGELES, Aug. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Chief Keef's salute to his late cousin, 'Ain't Missing You', is climbing charts and positioned at #4 on iTunes' Hip Hop singles list. The John Waite-interpolating track is the first single from the rapper's long-delayed 'Bang 3' mixtape featuring Jenn Em on vocals and was co-produced by the Animaniacs (Guido + B. Howard).
In a tribute to Keef's cousin Mario "Big Glo" Hess, who was shot and killed in 2014, the single uses the opportunity to criticize Chicago's violence. Howard, who spent a significant part of his childhood in Chicago and considers the city his 2nd home, stated, "Working with Chief Keef on this particular song was an interesting process because this man (formerly known for violence) seems to be making a change in himself and for others around him and that's something anyone can respect. That's what I am about. A new positivity radiated from him in this song through the message and I'm glad to have been a part of that process."
Howard is set to release a new single "DSYLM," off his highly-anticipated sophomore album later this month.
