“Growing up Asian American, it was hard to relate with pop culture—I watched The Simpsons and Spongebob to see yellow faces.”
Once a musician himself (as part of Mountain Brothers, the first Asian American act to be signed to a major label), Chops identifies with "artists today who go through many of the things my group did, overcoming the same obstacles, same struggles, pushing forward, and going beyond."
Here is just a small sampling of dope acts he believes you need to be paying attention to:
Reppin': Los Angeles
CHOPS says: Battle champ, tons of stripes, and increasingly great music. Super prolific output, tremendous grind. Listen here.
CHOPS says: Baiyu's talent, music, videos, and drive put a lot of major label artists to shame. Tremendous vocalist and writer. Listen here.
