- Keef got $440,000 as an advance and more than $300,000 to record Finally Rich, which sold 50,000 copies in its first week.
- Interscope reserves the right to void any subsequent album if Finally Rich hasn't moved moved 250,000 records by December 2013. So far, it has sold just 106,000 copies.
- Chief Keef’s label under Interscope, Glory Boyz Entertainment, also received a $440,000 advance. If the label's losses exceed $4.5 million, it can terminate the Glory Boyz Entertainment part of the contract.
