Detroit artist Chavis Chandler starts the year off strong with his latest release titled BRIDGECARDRAPS. This 12 track album is filled soulful samples and powerful lyrics detailing the struggles, life, and overall upbringing of a young man trying to make his way in Detroit. Chavis starts off the album with the track titled “yesterday”, featuring his camp mates from the Verbal Vomit crew where they attack the lack of realism & Lyrics in today’s Hip Hop and call a challenge to any whack MC intentionally spitting whack lyrics and constructing whack music. Chavis also skillfully details stories of his life growing up in the streets of East 7 Mile Detroit & how his struggles molded his ambition & drive and help shape him into who he is today with tracks like “Chavis” & “Stay True.” Chavis also hits home for all Detroit natives with one of his signature tracks “Lou’s coney Island” where he describes his love for the simple pleasure shared by all Detroiters that is, THE CONEY ISLAND!!! Overall this is a very well put together project and one of my top underground picks of the year so far.
