Chase, first of all where are you bro. You from Saint Louis. You live here in Chicago right?
ChaseTheMoney: No, I’m actually in Atlanta right now.
But you were here though for a little bit right?
ChaseTheMoney: I was in Chicago. I was staying with the homie DJ Victorious for a lil minute while working on music.
Man, I can’t go anywhere without hearing this VTM tape. how they feeling about ChaseTheMoney in the ATL streets?
ChaseTheMoney: I got love for the A, people been showing me love since the beginning. Shit piped up right now.
That’s crazy because I know of producers and rappers who move to Atlanta solely to get better and more exposure in their craft. I see now the move is to LA. You give that any thought seeing that you went from STL, to the Chi, to Atlanta.
ChaseTheMoney: It doesn’t matter where you go, your career is based off work ethic.
You’ve lived in Saint Louis and Chicago…Which city has the better Chinese food?
ChaseTheMoney: Y’all Chicago Chinese food trash [laughs].
I knew you would say that. I went to SIUE and had STL homies, so every now and then we’d drive to St. Louis and get food from the “chinamen.” At first I was like what the hell is “chinamen,” you mean Chinese food?
ChaseTheMoney: Yeah it’s what they put in the chinamen in St. Louis. It’s something they put in it to make it so good to where its damn near addictive.
It’s no hibachi spots in Saint Louis?
ChaseTheMoney: Not at all, bro.
So more into VTM, let’s talk about the project and how you and Valee linked up.
ChaseTheMoney: We linked up through DJ Victorious while I was in Chicago. He found my page on IG, heard a beat, then instantly pulled up to buy four of em.
The way he sound on “Shell” is so fluent it sound like it was meant to be.
ChaseTheMoney: Most people don’t realize Valee made that beat, he produced “Shell.”
Word, that sounds like your style though.
ChaseTheMoney: Yeah you can feel the influence but that’s all Valee though.
So what else you working on besides this VTM project bro?
ChaseTheMoney: New music from Twista, it’s called “Stacking Paper” off of his new album Crook County. It’s plenty of new music that’s about to drop, just gotta keep ya eyes open.
Got it we’re looking forward to all these projects. Anything else you can leave the people bro.
ChaseTheMoney: shout out to Shawngranted.con for showing love, man.
