A couple weeks ago, we had the pleasure of seeing rising Detroit rapper Chavis Chandler rip a crowd to shreds at SOB’s before Cozz took the stage. Chandler can stack syllables on top of one another in his verses and then break out into a beautifully natural singing voice for his choruses. At SOB’s he was running through octaves like dollar bills, and the crowd seemed surprised by the newcomer.
On “Gang $igns,” he flexes both abilities over crispy production. That hook is already stuck in our heads and he’s joined by Icewear Vezzo, the bubbling street rapper also from the D. Together, they make a deadly combination.
The Call Of The Wild is coming in 2015. Stay tuned. You better get to know this kid before everyone else does.
