Back in June, Ye fell for Mechanicsville MC Chilly Chills, sorta on the fly. The G.O.O.D. Music CEO just happened to hear a track from the Atlanta native while he was in town for Hot 107.9’s Birthday Bash and he was hooked. My first time hearing Chilly live yielded the same reaction.
His tracks are a mixture of grim hood folklore and dreamy foresight, delving into deeper layers than the average rap song. Chilly isn’t solely proclaiming to be ‘dope’ but he’s explaining the reasons why. Take a look at the video and give his DOPE EP a listen while you’re at it.
