THE POET, TURNED RISING HIP HOP STAR HAS FANS, AND THE MUSIC INDUSTRY, BUZZING ABOUT HIS DEEMED ‘SOPHISTICATED IGNORANCE’ LYRICAL CONTENT AND ONE-OF- KIND SOUND, AND ‘ROCKSTAR’ VIBE STAGE-SHOW. THIS RAPPER IS QUICKLY PIONEERING A SHIFT IN INTELLIGENCE, CREATIVITY AND MUSICALITY ON A GLOBAL SCALE THROUGH HIS MUSIC IN CREATING A CATEGORY OF HIS OWN.

WITHIN ONLY ONE YEAR, NOTHING COULD HAVE PREPARED CHILLY CHILLS FOR HIS RISE COMING FROM SUCH HUMBLE BEGINNINGS. INFLUENCED HEAVILY FROM HIS UPBRINGING IN THE ROUGH NEIGHBORHOOD OF MECHANICSVILLE, ALONG WITH THE HUGE WAVE OF SOUTHERN MUSICIANS THE YOUNG POET USED HIP HOP AS AN ESCAPE AND WOULD ALSO GROW TO INSPIRE HIS VISION FOR “BECOMING THE CHANGE’” HE WANTS TO SEE.

IN 2015 ALONE, CHILLS HAS GONE FROM PERFORMING ON THE STAGES WITH THE LIKES OF TRAVIS SCOTT AND FUTURE, TO OPENING FOR TI AND BEING CO-SIGNED BY HIP HOP MOGULS ALIKE. HAILING FROM THE ‘MUSIC CAPITOL OF THE SOUTH’ ATLANTA, GEORGIA, CHILLS HAS SET THE SOUTHEAST A BLAZE WITH HIS SELF DEEMED “ SOPHISTICATED IGNORANCE” LYRICAL APPROACH , COVER-MODEL LOOKS, AND PARTY READY SOUND. RARE FOR MANY NEW ARTISTS, CHILLS ‘PARTY ANTHEM’ SINGLE “POPPIN IN HERE”, IS CURRENTLY GAINING MOMENTUM WITH HEAVY RADIO ROTATION THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY IN MANY MAJOR MARKETS. CHILLS SPARKED IMMENSE BUZZ IN THE HIP HOP WORLD IN AN UNCONVENTIONAL APPROACH NOT TO MENTION HIS NON-CONVENTIONAL CONTENT.

CHARISMATIC, AND LYRICALLY MATURE, THE RAPPER AND WRITER CAUGHT THE ATTENTION OF ATLANTA DUO OUTKAST AND KANYE WEST AFTER A MAINSTAGE PERFORMANCE AT THE A3C FESTIVAL. THAT RECOGNITION SUBSEQUENTLY WON HIM AN INVITE FOR A LITSTENING SESSION AT A LOCAL STUDIO, WHERE CHILLS AND THE VETERANS ALL SHARED MUSIC.AND LATER A LEGENDARY HANGOUT WITH THE COMPANY OF DRAKE, 2 CHAINS AND FUTURE. ALONG WITH CO-SIGNS FROM THESE MAJOR-INDUSTRY CO-SIGNERS, CHILLS WAS TIPPED TO BECOME RAPS NEXT GREAT HOPE BY VIBE, ROLLING OUT, ALL HIP HOP, SOHH.COM TO NAME A FEW.

BUT EVEN WITH A GROWING LINE OF HIGH-PROFILE STARS QUEUING UP TO COLLABORATE AND OFFERS FROM MANY A MAJOR LABEL, TO DATE, CHILLS HAS OPTED TO REMAIN AN INDEPENDENT ARTIST STRIVING TO BUILD HIS BRAND RADICAL RICH AND CONTINUING TO GROW TO HIS CATALOG OF TIMELESS MUSIC. FROM HIS SIGNIFICANT INFLUENCE, SEVERAL BRANDS INCLUDINGFRESH IMPIRE HAVE HIRED CHILLS AS THE FACE OF THIER FDA TOBACCO-FREE CAMPAIGN.
CHILLS DECIDED TO HEAD BACK TO HIS HOME STUDIO TO FOLLOW THE HIT SINGLE WITH A DEBUT EP DOPE AND RELEASE IT INDEPENDENTLY IN THE FALL OF 2015. THE ACCLAIMED EP HOSTED BY ATLANTA PREMIERE DJ GREG STREET WHICH MARRIED ENTIRELY ORIGINAL SOUNDSCAPES WITH CHILLS’ , FLOW AND CONTENT. REFERRING TO HIMSELF THE ARTIST AS”‘THE DOPE” IN RELATIONSHIP TO THE ADDICTIVE SUBSTANCE IS A CLEAR EXAMPLE OF HIS STELLAR WORDPLAY THROUGH THE TITLE TRACK. THE VULNERABILITY IN HIS RAPS IS ONE OF THE WAYS CHILLS USES ENTERTAINMENT AS A VESSEL TO SPREAD THE IMPORTANCE OF SINCERITY AND INSIGHT TO HIS LISTENERS ULTIMATELY BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN SOPHISTICATION AND IGNORANCE.

AFTER A WHIRLWIND YEAR THAT FOLLOWED THE RELEASE, CHILLS HAS SINCE RELEASED A SERIES OF 12 SINGLES INCLUDING HIS MOST RECENT AND WELL RECEIVED EP BLESSINGS TO ITUNES .
CHILLS IS CURRENTLY HARD AT WORK IN PREPARATION TO RELEASE HIS DEBUT ALBUM ‘ SOPHISTICATED IGNORANCE” ON HIS OWN LABEL (RADICAL RICH) THIS SUMMER.
