Chop, a southern girl, from where palm trees grow and folks speak slow. This Jacksonville, Florida native keeps a day job as a teacher and moonlights as an emcee, speaking passionately on all things. Over melodic and bombastic tunes, she can be heard rapping about the pressing issues of the present moment, and challenging the status quo. In simple form this complex artist makes apples into applesauce, keeping it authentically tasty.
In asking Chop what is the driving force behind her music--the answer is--LOVE. “I love people and I love sounds, so I figured if I combined the two and became a human instrument, I would have a winner.”
Although this young artist has just appeared on the performance scene, within the last year, she has shared the stage and appeared on projects with such artists as Blu and Exile, Tanya Morgan, Stacey Epps, M1 of Dead Prez, Wu-Tang, Medusa, and Planet Asia, Geechi Suede of Camp Lo, and Shafiq of SA-RA. Currently she is collaborating with several artists on projects of their own and is planning the release of BANG, the mixtape, and TOO MORROW, an EP.

1. Expression: I talk too much, so why not hypnotize folks into listening to me by speaking in iambic pentameter over beats?
2. Love: Well, I love people and sounds, so I figured if I combined the two and became a human instrument, I would have a winner.
3. Greed: I am hungry. I want change, so I must use up all the possible ways to create a paradigm shift.
4. People: Teach the babies. I rap for the youth, the community, the world to come, and all the little plants sprouting up. I seek to be the voice of the unheard.

Note: me getting songs from female artists doesn’t mean I have to automatically toss it up here because they’re female regardless of my thoughts on the matter, especially if I don’t like it to begin with. Anyways…
