Back From The Dead is a mixtape by American hip hop recording artist Chief Keef. It was released on March 12, 2012.[1] The mixtape features guest appearances from Lil Reese, Soulja Boy, King L, and SD.[2] [3] "I Don't Like" featuring Lil Reese was first included on the mixtape, and would be released as a single. It peaked at #73 on the Billboard Hot 100, and is included on his debut album Finally Rich. The official remix to "I Don't Like" features Kanye West, Pusha T, Big Sean & Jadakiss and is included on the GOOD Music collaboration album Cruel Summer.

In February 2014, Keef confirmed via Twitter that the sequel mixtape titled Back From The Dead 2 is in the works with a release date set for sometime in 2014. The mixtape's cover resembles that of the film Dawn of the Dead.

Reception[edit]

Critical response[edit]

Jordan Sargent at Pitchfork Media said in a review, "Back From the Dead, his breakthrough mixtape is loud, rough, unrelenting, lurching, and undeniably the child of Waka Flocka Flame and producer Lex Luger's indelible Flockaveli. But if you read the title more literally to mean that Keef is something like a zombie, it's maybe even more appropriate. Surrounded by beats from producer Young Chop that are stuffed with the sound of gunshots and Keef's choice ad-lib, "Bang Bang," he's close to stoic throughout, stalking expressionless through the streets."[4]
