Chief Keef has been off lean for several months.

Chief Keef says that he’s been off lean for three to four months now and celebrated the accomplishment on social media, Sunday. The announcement comes after he dropped his new album, Almighty So 2, on Friday. It’s his first studio album since 2021’s 4NEM and serves as a sequel to his 2013 mixtape, Almighty So.

"Been clean of lean 3-4 months now! CHAMPION," he wrote in his Instagram Story. He added a kissing face, clapping hands, and leaves emoji to the post. When the news made its way to the "HipHopHeads" Reddit, fans were thrilled. "His latest interview with Zane Lowe was shocking. I’ve never heard him speak so coherently," one fan remarked. Another wrote: "F*ck yes I thought AS2 sounded cleaner like his delivery had range and was sharp. Keep it up, Sosa!"

For Almighty So 2, Keef teamed up with Ballout, G Herbo, Lil Gnar, Tierra Whack, Sexyy Red, and Quavo. The track, "Grape Trees," marks his and Sexyy Red's fourth time collaborating. Keef discussed their chemistry during an interview with Billboard earlier this year. “I just know she f**k with me real heavy," he said at the time. "I f**k with her, too. [She was] saying she wants to come through and I said, ‘Hell f**king yeah.’ You can really just tell she comes from where we come from.”
