Ain't Missing You

Songfacts®:

  • The first single off Bang 3 is this heartfelt song which samples John Waite's 1984 pop hit "Missing You." Chief Keef dedicated the track to his late cousin Mario "Big Glo" Hess, who was murdered in Chicago in April 2014.
  • On October 21, 2014 Keef was dropped by Interscope Records. After meeting billionaire internet television producer Alki David, Keef signed an album deal with David's FilmOn. This song was recorded at the suggestion of the rapper's new label boss. "It was important to [record 'Ain't Missing You'] because it shows [my fans] that you can overcome anything," Keef told The Boombox. "The situations I was in back in Chicago, the situations at Interscope... you gotta go up."
  • The song features a chorus crooned by writer and hook-singer Jenn Em (née Jennifer Michelle Malsch).
