"Chill Will – “Certain Way” (@1426ChillWill)"

Two things were abundantly clear when I arrived at Chill Will‘s listening event last week at the plush BPE Studios (Buckhead, Atlanta): #1 My sinus infection wasn’t budging, and #2 this guy’s buzz is rising. A number of taste makers were in the building to hear what he has to offer for the upcoming O.V.A mixtape (hosted by The Empire). From what I heard, he has the potential to capture his fair share of the market because he isn’t loading us up with fantasies. Prime example: The track “Certain Way” — here’s the audio & a look BTS of the video #coalitiondjsATL - DJ Black Bill Gates


"Chill Will - No Manners (mixtape, 2012)"

Chill Will, one of the many rappers only I care about, is a (former?) Gucci Mane protege, and the only BSM member I’ve been consistently impressed with in years. Admittedly, his success rate more than likely comes from the lack of music that he releases, especially solo material, but he’s captivated me in all his features and the few songs of his own that have trickled out. The latest of which found its place on a mixtape dominated by Future songs (the standout of which being the great “YSL Cheetah”, a song far more reminiscent of his 2011 mixtape run than the autotuned-ballads that finally got those more stubborn critics to pay attention to him [hey guys!]). Despite being randomly dropped in a slew of songs by more recognizable names, Chill Will’s Mike Will-produced banger stands out as one of the more instantly gratifying listens.

Will’s thick drawl, which is as Bama as it comes, is his main selling point, but it’s hard to deny the unusual wavelength Will’s on. Though Will’s certainly no Southern gentleman, on this particular track, he spends the entire track dismissing females who lack proper etiquette. It isn’t groundbreaking, but Will is at least offering more than the far more blogged-about Ice Burgandy, being one of the few Brick Squad third-tiers with a fully formed personality. Will maybe a student of Gucci, but he doesn’t live by his tricking philosophy; evidenced by the first few bars, where he refuses to buy his lady friend something as lowly as a single banana. - YaYoDancing

Bio

With humble beginnings growing up in Decatur, Georgia, Chill Will was introduced to music singing in his church choir at the young age of 7 years old. When he realized that he enjoyed making music whether he was being paid or not, Chill made the decision to turn his love for music into a career, vowing to overcome all obstacles to do so.

Chill was not always as fortunate as many of his peers. The financial strain and struggle in his household growing up continues to be an inspiration to him and motivates him to succeed.

“I remember wanting certain things that we couldn’t afford and my mom would always say no. That answer, and her reasons for giving me that answer, inspired me to do more.”

With a laid back demeanor, but still very outgoing and aggressive when necessary, Chill’s personality shines through in his music. His passion for music and commanding emotion in his songs perfectly compliment his relaxed southern flow style. His word choice, track selection and delivery are just bonuses to make his autobiographical music that much more enjoyable. But don’t get lost in the music and confuse Chill Will with just another rapper with tales of struggle and a rise from the bottom. His music honestly reflects his life experiences, which makes him undeniably relatable. A fan of hip hop can listen to Chill’s songs and enjoy good music; while someone struggling through pain, sacrifice and hardship can listen to Chill’s music and be immensely inspired.

With his universal hip hop style, Chill Will’s music can be appreciated by music and hip hop fans everywhere. His performance requests in the southeast region are growing steadily, even as requests start to come in from Northern and Midwest markets such as Baltimore and Chicago. Only two years into his professional music career, Chill Will has worked with many of Atlanta’s most popular artists. Thus far, he has recorded with urban greats such as Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka Flame, Rocko, and more. His self-titled debut mixtape, Chill Will, is scheduled to be released May 2012.

Chill Will is currently the sole artist on 1426 Music Group, an Atlanta-based independent record label. He has been highlighted in various local magazines and received local radio play for his song, Cook Cook in 2006 – before he ever organized his team and decided to rigorously pursue a career in music. Six years later, Chill Will is positioned to be a major contender in hip hop. With a dedicated team working behind his project to position him among rap giants, doors are sure to open as this East Atlanta rapper is determined to rise to the top of his genre.

“Things are coming into order for me, and I’m open to every opportunity to dominate any situation that I’m in. This is the year that starts everything off for me for years to come. I’m ready.”
