Biography

With the success of rappers such as Jay Z, 50 Cent, and T.I, there’s no longer a question why younger hip-hop listeners strive to become Rap music icons. What seemed to be a hopeless dream growing up on the South Side streets of Chicago has now become a reality for rapper/entrepreneur, Chuck General.

A day in the life for Chuck Levi felt more like a movie than reality. Chuck’s father was considered a hustler and an advocate for entrepreneurship by any means necessary. Though his mother chose a different path, it was just as destructive – battling an on-going drug and alcohol addiction. With the odds against him and no real hopes towards a rewarding future, Chuck’s older sister, Destiny G, became his savior and guiding light. “My sisters rhyming skills was no joke. I used to steal them, memorize everything, take it to school and start rapping to all my classmates. I eventually taught myself how to write and it’s been my inspiration to strive for something better ever since,” says Chuck.

Chuck’s perseverance, leadership, and determination for change within his environment earned the rough and raspy-voiced rapper an appropriate surname – General. Taking his talents to the streets through mix-tapes, Chuck General released an independent album in 2004 titled, Dirt & Water. The album not only granted him street credibility but also generated a local buzz, demonstrating that Chuck could soon be on his way to a successful career in music.

Using networking as a tool for advancement, Chuck headed east to New York. By a chance meeting, he crossed paths with a local producer named 7th EMP. The meeting would soon shape and develop a sound so unique for Chuck and the two have been inseparable ever since.

Chuck’s ambition to overcome the impossible has resulted in success as an independent artist. With a record label soon to surface, Chuck’s limitless drive has received positive reviews for performances all across the United States. Various mix-tapes, and opening performances for artists such as Twista, generated press reviews in HipHopGame.Com, Rap Fanatic, and Spate magazine, just to name a few.

Chuck General has, without a doubt, come a long way from the streets of Chicago. With a substantial difference in overall persona and influences ranging from Russel Simmons to Dr. Dre, it’s no wonder Chuck General is a combination of all things North, South, East, and West. “Everyone has to grow up at some point. My past is my past, and I don’t claim to be some gangsta rapper just because some of my lyrics are hard. I come from the streets of Chicago to tell my story. I am foremost an artist that makes music that is true, tough, intelligent, and funny, and because of that there can only be one Chuck General.”
