Chief Keef, the Chicago rapper, will release the “Bang 4” EP ahead of “Bang 3.”

The rapper, born Keith Cozart, tweeted the artwork for the EP on Thursday and indicated that it would be an EP that is a preface to “Bang 3.”

“Bang4 The EP Bfo B3,” he wrote on Twitter. “Bang 3” will be released March 3.

“Okay, are you keeping score at home? If not, you might want to get out a pencil to write all of this down because it’s getting a bit confusing. So due out in the coming weeks/months from Chief Keef are: Back From The Dead 2, Bang 3 and now Bang 4. Oh, and an album,” wrote Fake Shore Drive. 

To clarify, it adds: “But Bang 4 is actually an EP, and supposed to come out prior to Bang 3. Because Bang 4 is the lead up EP to the Bang 3 album. Got it? You confused? We’ll put together a chart for you soon. Check out the cover art above.”

On Feb. 19, Chief Keef tweeted the album cover for the “Back From The Dead 2” mixtape.

Chief Keef, 18, recently spoke with Billboard about going to rehab earlier this year.

“It’s like being locked up,” Chief Keef told the website, speaking from Southern California. “And when I’m locked up, I don’t want anybody to come see me. I won’t let my family come here. I haven’t seen my 2-year-old daughter.”

A judge sentenced him to 90 days of rehab after he tested positive for marijuana while he was on probation due to gun charges. 

“I had to stay with 30 [expletive] — and I don’t like people,” Keef said, adding that “I won’t shake your hand if I don’t like you. Don’t speak to me.”

He continued: “I’m 18 now, but I feel like I’m 30. I partied like a [expletive] — guns, girls.”

Regarding some of his past releases, he said he’s got regrets over the quality.

“My last two mixtapes were mistakes. I was on promethazine, all drugged out. I was tweaking. I don’t sip the lean no more though,” he said.
