People have always called him “Fi” and he added “Chief” because he was always on top of his game. Fi Chief started writing his own rhymes at the age of 12 and this was also about the same time that Young Jeezy and Kinky B came to him with the news of starting a label. At 14, Fi Chief was already performing in various clubs in and around Central Georgia.
By the time Fi Chief turned 16, he was one of the original members of USDA, Fi Chief has a verse on “Da Movement” & “Lean Wit It” which are tracks on Tha Streets Iz Watchin mixtape hosted by DJ Drama. By 18, Fi Chief performed with Young Jeezy’s on the Trap or Die tour. He performed in shows all over the Southeast region of the United States alongside big names such as Bun B, Fabolous and Yo Gotti just to name a few.
Fi Chief started his own label in 2005, Meal Time Entertainment. Since then Fi Chief has been grinding non-stop. He hooked up with Big Wu on the original version of the popular summer ’06 single, “I’m The Shit”, which featured Fabo. In late 2008, Fi Chief decided to take his career a step further and started looking into getting music videos made for his songs.
He linked up with videographer Doug “GreatScott” Jones who filmed videos for both “I Am Rap” and “Murder Case”. In 2009, GreatScott was putting the finishing touches on the latter when he introduced a proposition to Munta “Money” Montgomery & Damon Reeves “Flyer Grafix”, (Graphic Designer). Munta and Damon heard Fi Chief for the first time and their interest in Fi Chief was immediately sparked. Shortly after, Damon, Munta & Fi Chief met to discuss Fi Chief’s future. As a result, FI-HOUSE MUSIC GROUP was created
and the “doyouCHIEF?” campaign was born!
