CHAZ FRENCH – KILL Vol 1: A DMV Original [MIXTAPE]

CHAZ FRENCH

By Jack Barnes

DMV auteur and recording artist Chaz French has surprised fans by dropping a mixtape that rounds out the incredible 2017 the ThreeSixEight/Capitol artist has had. With the success of many new artists and records now coming from the burgeoning hip hop scene in the DMV, Chaz decided it was a good time to put together a short playlist that soundtracked daily DMV life. Featuring Innanet James, Fat Trel, Will Tha Rapper and more, the mixtape features a slew of DMV vernacular and the vibey rap sound that Chaz French was first discovered on. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.

It’s been a roller coaster ride for Chaz, who’s debut album True Colors (LISTEN HERE) was released earlier this summer. The critically acclaimed album helped solidify Chaz as a true one to watch and was heavily supported by fellow artists/musicians such as Pusha T, Curren$y, Wale, BJ The Chicago and more. The album played an important role in paving the narrative for Chaz as a true supporter of the DMV region – in all its guts and glory. Staying true to the themes of the debut project, Chaz became a proponent for voicing on topics of mass incarceration going as far as penning an op-ed with Teen Vogue about growing up as a child with an incarcerated parent – a narrative all too familiar to all those around him.

He also teamed up with fellow activist Tony Lewis Jr. to film a piece with CNN to discuss issues of mass incarceration and the state of young black men in this country. Watch that clip HERE

KILL: Vol 1 comes right in the middle of Chaz French’s national tour with J.I.D and EarthGang’s “Never Had Shit Tour.” Playing cities across the country, Chaz has become a mainstay live performer bringing his rumbustious energy and larger than life personality to eager crowds nationwide.
