Released: 2012

Features: Rick Ross

“3Hunna” by Chief Keef featuring Rick Ross is like a sonic embodiment of the streets, with a drill music flavor that originated from Chi-town’s South Side. It’s a braggadocio anthem that flexes on survival, loyalty, and dominance in a world where the fittest prevail, and the weak get left behind. Keef and Ross – they ain’t just spitting bars; they’re painting a mural of their reality.

Let’s break it down; the hook, “Nigga I’m 3Hunna bang,” that’s Keef asserting his allegiance to 300, a reference to his crew back in Chicago. And when you hear “I’m coolin’ with my youngins,” he’s chilling with his squad, not just passing time but staying alert. “And what we smoke one hunna,” Keef’s saying that everything they do, they keep it 100% real, no faking. “Click clack, pow, now he runnin’,” it gets visceral here; the sound of a gun being cocked and discharged means enemies are fleeing from their might.

The mentions of the Audi and Honda, that’s all about showing levels to this game. Keef’s rolling in luxury, symbolizing the success he’s gained, while his rivals? They’re lagging in their beat-up Hondas. The flex is hard, unapologetic. And the line “A fuck nigga, don’t wanna be it” simply means real recognize real, and they don’t have anything in common with phonies.

Chief Keef 3Hunna

When Keef drops “I like my bitch conceited,” he’s stating his preference for a woman with confidence, who knows her value. His verses are also a shoutout to his own hard-earned clout in the scene – “I’m Sosa bitch, Chief Keef.” But don’t forget the violence; the “bang, bang” ad-lib emphasizes the ever-present threat of gunplay in their world.

Now, enter the Bawse, Rick Ross. His verse takes the brutality up an octave. “My dog died, they put him in a plastic bag” – Rozay’s talking about fallen friends and the rawness of street funerals. His imagery with “Drivin’ a Bentley through the battlefield” shows how he navigates the luxurious life amidst chaos, and “Got more money than my haters” is self-explanatory – Ross has ascended beyond his enemies’ reach.

Ross touches on loyalty and street codes with the line “They took ’em for questions, he told ’em the truth” – a nod to the no-snitching rule. And the allusion to “smokin’ the shit my nigga be growin’ for Snoop” connects him to both the cannabis culture and rap royalty, showing his network’s diverse range.

Closing it out, both artists maintain their declaration of keeping it “one hunna” (completely genuine) and “3Hunna” (true to their roots and three times as real), while they contrast their upmarket Audis to their opps’ Hondas once more, driving home the status they command. To the unaware ear, “3Hunna” may just sound like any hardcore track, but the layers are there – reflecting their savage realities and the merciless climb to the top.
