Appearances on DJ Premier & Royce 5’9’s PRhyme 2 (“Everyday Struggle”) and Royce’s Book Of Ryan (“First Of The Month” which also featured T-Pain) give a recent taste of stellar features alongside Royce who stated “Chavis is someone who reminds me a lot of myself as a younger artist” & “He’s so raw and talented and progressing with every new song I hear.  I can’t wait for the world to see in him what I see.

Now, quick to follow last years full-length album “One Winged Angel” which garnered the #18 spot on my top fifty album breakdown of 2018 here comes “Chop Shop Dojo“.  It’s been less than a year since the last acclaimed release & Chavis Chandler isn’t wasting any time adding to his accolades. Arriving on April 11th, 2019 “Chop Shop Dojo” packs eleven brand new records & features production from Royce Da 5’9″, Young RocBeware, Orlando Wade, and more. 

“Chop Shop Dojo” is officially order for pre-order today but thats not all. “FBHM” the controversy stirring first single is also available to stream today. Be sure order to secure your copy of the album below & also catch Chavis Chandler speaking on the single earlier today at HipHopDx.

“It’s no secret that the history of blacks, not just African Americans, traces to the beginnings of civilization.  The geography of black people is vast, wide and deep” Chavis commented to HipHopDx.  “Our history should be explored for more than a month and considered “World History.” The term “Black History Month” became what it is from an idea of giving blacks in America a specified time of reflection and appreciation.  The founder, Carter G. Woodson’s goal was to begin something that would cause the integration of black culture into the mainstream.  However, In most cases, black history month seems to just be a rhetoric repeat of the same names & images of degrading treatment, murder, and disrespect that blacks have endured for decades. Instead of black history being considered world history, it remains relegated to a month. We want a new appreciation for our history and we want it taught all year long.  From music, fashion, sports & entertainment, black culture has always been the most appropriated.  We are the culture!”

You can now pre-order, add and favorite Chop Shop Dojo at your preferred DSP, with “FBHM” now available as an instant grat track: https://ingrooves.ffm.to/chavischandler

Skalla – Slow Grind

Published

Hailing from a city better known for its bankruptcy than its bosses, it’s no wonder why rapper and songwriter SkaLLa feels his neighborhood has a unique sound that needs to be heard, soon his upcoming single “Slow Grind” will showcase the real Detroit—the one where crooked cops parlay with hustlers and drug dealers, and everyday citizens fight for survival. “I’m bringing real originality, and I’m not fabricating anything I’m talking about, that why I know I’m relatable,” says SKalla. Despite the unforgiving news headlines, there’s beauty beneath the grime of Detroit.  It’s where SKalla first got his taste of the old school melodies that flooded through his grandmother’s home—music that was heavily influenced by the many talented artists that once strutted the now abandoned streets. It’s also where his love of R&B music began, as evidenced on records sampling classic tunes from artists such as Luther Vandross.

SkaLLa, began studying music and discovered a hidden talent in songwriting, helping to pen a few R&B songs for a local singer. He eventually landed in front of representatives from Jive Records, who were impressed by his knack for branding, as well as his blatantly honest lyricism. Realizing that his name was also a major part of his brand, he ditched the moniker of his youth and chose SkaLLa as an ode to his ability of combining his book smarts with that of the streets that he calls home. In a world where many rappers spew lyrics from ghostwriters, SKalla prides himself on writing his own music. The release of “Slow Grind” in Winter 2021 gives the seasoned rapper a new reason to boast, as he sets out to drop gems through personal stories of a boy going through trials and tribulations turning him into a man. He feels this project will encourage others to pursue better opportunities outside of their usual circumstances as he did.
