There is perhaps no other producer around with as much buzz surrounding him as Chicago’s Young Chop, whose record “I Don’t Like” with similarly sweltering artist Chief Keef is currently seeing the likes of Kanye West, Pusha T, Big Sean and Jadakiss hopping on board the remix. LRG recently hit the studio with the 18-year-old phenom producer where he discussed how he got his start, some of the biggest records already under his belt and his signature sound.
In part 2 of our Off the Record series with 18-year-old phenom producer Young Chop, he describes how the viral hit “I Don’t Like” came about – detailing how the chorus, verses and beat came together quickly during a recording session. In addition, Chop reveals insight into the remix of the Chief Keef track that features Kanye West, Pusha T, Jadakiss and Big Sean. Not the type of person to rest on his laurels, Chops remains as focused as ever – knowing that longevity in hip-hop is what separates overnight successes from those with ultimate staying power.
