Chaz French, newest signee of ThreeSixEight/Motown/Capitol Records and rising D.C. rapper, is excited to announce the release of his debut studio album, True Colors, out July 14th, 2017. The blockbuster 17-track album showcases Chaz’s natural rap talent and affinity for smart word play and cutting bars. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.

This album feels like a ride though my city, at the same time taking a journey through my experiences and emotions up to this point in my young rap career. DC hasn’t had many chances to have our voice heard on a large platform up until this point in hip hop. When ThreeSixEight got my deal at Motown, that meant DC got a deal too. This isn’t just about me, it’s about the city and the world hearing our voice. No matter if we come from the same walk of life, if you’re from DC I want you to feel like you were a part of making this album because life in this city was, and will always be my inspiration.” — Chaz French
To celebrate the announcement, Chaz has premiered the second single off his new album, “Pops,” just in time for Father’s Day this weekend. The poignant track, which premiered via Complex, spotlights issues of mass incarceration and Chaz’s own relationship with a father who was in and out of prison. “Mass incarceration and the drug abuse that happened during this time left many households without fathers. I couldn’t fully understand why my Dad wasn’t around growing up for extended periods of time, but now I get it and I forgive,” said Chaz.

ABOUT CHAZ FRENCH
Transparent and often unapologetic about his past, Chaz French’s lyrics to his vibey music are inspired by his own life experiences. He delivers his art in its purest form and people have gravitated to his honest lyrics throughout his career.  Born in D.C. and raised in Maryland, French describes himself as a survivor having experienced an almost fatal car accident and homelessness, often crediting those traumatic experiences to his tenaciousness. Chaz first burst on to the scene with the release of his Billboard charting EP, These Things Take Time. The project was featured on Apple’s “Mixtape of the Week” and landed him a feature with Interview Magazine. Now with the release of his Motown/Capitol debut album, True Colors, he is positioning himself as one of the most promising young artists in hip-hop with the album is his most honest and creative project to date. The first single off the track “Way Out,” premiered via Billboard earlier this year and has already amassed over 1 Billion streams on Spotify. Chaz’s enigmatic stage presence has also earned him festival routing/spot dates around the country including a successful run at SXSW in Austin this year, Rolling Loud, Broccoli Fest and a guest spot on Wale’s The Shine Tour. 2017 might be the biggest year yet for Chaz, but he’s only just getting started.
