  • CHASE PE$O

    Meet CHASE PE$O, a multi-talented rapper, singer,
    songwriter, record producer and director.
    CHASE grew up in a culturally diverse neighborhood
    in Bushwick (Brooklyn, N.Y.) which helped to developed
    his distinctive sound, a hypnotic blend of Jazz, Hip-Hop,
    Funk, Soul and Spoken Word.
    He and a few friends started a Hip-Hop group in mid-2000
    initially naming themselves “Renegades”, then later
    changed their name to “Team Fame”. The group did not
    achieve the success they hoped it would.
    A little disappointed but not discouraged, CHASE PE$O
    decided to relocate to Atlanta, Georgia, where the
    music scene was popping, to pursue a career as a solo artist.
    He put his talent for songwriting to work and before you know it,
    he was a part of a creative writing team alongside AKON and
    Roscoe Dash. This opened the door for his music.
    Shortly after he released his debut EP, “LOVE or LUST”.
    It was a success! After years of grinding CHASE PE$O
    had finally released his solo project.
    He followed up with his sophomore EP, “Glass Jars and
    Butterfly Tops”, in summer of 2015. It was instantly hailed
    an “underground classic”. CHASE’s ability to mix lyricism and
    conscious elements with his sound made him unique.
    In March of 2017 CHASE PE$O and his group M.U.L.A. Society
    independently released a compilation album titled,
    “Welcome to M.U.L.A.ville”.
    They are currently touring the tri-state and East/West coasts
    promoting the album and CHASE’s latest single, “Chico DeBarge”.
    The remix featuring Chico DeBarge himself and fellow Brooklyn
    rapper MAINO will de dropping this summer.
    Check out CHASE PE$O and the M.U.L.A. Society’s music and
    videos on iTunes, Spotify and the YouTube channel.

  • Shooting Stars in Boston

    By. CheckThisArtist.com staff

    The Boston music scene lost yet another local artist this month, a casualty to hip-hop jealousy.

    Close to 1 A.M. on Wednesday, February 17, Dedham, Mass. Native Scott “Prettyboii Shankz” Drake was gunned down following his performance at City Limits nightclub on Main Street in downtown Randolph. In the hours following his murder, the 23-year old emerging rapper was lauded on social media by friends and fans alike for both his work ethic and professionalism in the hip-hop game.

    A friend, who would like to remain anonymous, said “[Drake] was a great person at heart, always making people laugh.” A suspect in the killing was apprehended later Wednesday morning and was arraigned in Quincy Court the following day. The Norfolk County District Attorney’s office stated the shooting is believed to be a “contained incident”. Today, in his honor, CheckThisArtist.com we’ll shed some light on his musical legacy left behind. R.I.P. PrettyBoii Shankz.

     

     

    Hip-Hop Lives On 

    Since the shooting death of area rapper Jamie Lee, A.K.A. Roc Dukati, on March, 2, 2011 following his performance at Underbar on Tremont street in downtown Boston, the hip-hop community and scene has grown rapidly for local rappers, but with their rise comes the increase of those looking to hamper their plans.

    It’s this type of person that gunned down Roc Dukati several years ago and Shankz this past week. And rather than let the haters dull their shine, CheckThisArtist.com would like to remember both for who they are and the artistry they put into their craft. So follow along as we represent their legacy and let their music speak for them.

  • Antonio Breez - The Convocation of Antonio Breez

    Now Available!

    Preview The Convocation of Antonio Breez Album

    The Convocation of Antonio Breez' is the culmination of years of hard work and passion from the Boston wordsmith, Antonio Breez. A proper debut album, it touches on a number of topics while bringing the listener into the world of an artist you won’t soon forget.

    The up-and-coming spitter spends the 16 tracks on here chronicling every facet of his life, from the shoulder-brushing bars of “Welcome Ceremony,” to the late-night hustler raps of “Can’t Sleep,” and the pure technical display of “Wet,” and its well played Redman sample. But his lyrical autobiography goes beyond insight, touching upon both his work ethic and artistic rise. He also slows things down with sharply written lover-man rhymes on other highlights, especially the album-closer, “She Don’t Want” and “Next To Me” (with the latter paying homage to Common’s classic, “The Light”).

    The majority of the album is handled by producer Kazi Beatz, whose instrumentals range from bouncy, piano-forward R&B (“Successful”) to more modern soundscapes (“My Time”). Elsewhere, Official Stichel delivers sample-based slappers (“Can’t Sleep”), while Magic On The Beats flips nods to J Dilla (“School Love”). Other contributors include Skinny Manolo, DBrown, QuietKept, and Chris Prythm, with Breez pulling it altogether with his shapeshifting flow and confident lyrics.

    For Breez, it all boils down to putting everything out there for whoever’s willing to listen. As he says on the opening track, “Today I stand before Hip-Hop and I walk the ceremony knowing that no semester is guaranteed.” He then humbly recognizes that his potential for success and failure is equal, though those who hear 'The Convocation' will realize there’s no chance for the latter.

    'The Convocation of Antonio Breez' is now available online wherever music is available for stream and download, through Gittuff Entertainment. 90% of all proceeds will be donated towards Team Jade’s Be The Match donation fundraiser, in her fight against leukemia. *Click here If you’d like to contribute directly: bit.ly/20f6SHV

     

     
     
     
    Video: “You Ain’t Hot”/“Exodus"
     
     
    In promotion of Breez's debut effort, the Bostonian worsdsmith delivers a fresh new video for both "You Ain't Hot" and "Exodus." The slick visuals center on the young rapper’s lyrics and style as he puts on for his city by repping the Red Sox, Bruins, and Celtics, he spits clever lines like “Your Taco Bell flow got you n*as way past gas,” along with a series of tongue-twisting, double-time rhymes.

    Stylistically, the video goes beyond what Breez is wearing on screen. The first half, “You Ain't Hot,” which recently debuted on Shade 45, is shot to mimic like you're watching an old-school rap video on VHS. That is, of course, before it switches to shots of Breez posted up in front of an all-black SUV.
