Next Up: Chavis Chandler

Friday, May 15th, 2015


Chavis Chandler defines overcoming adversity. From the outside looking in, it’s clear that his steady incline in the rap game is due to the constant improvement in his music–a combination of his unique voice mixed with his own original style. Internally though, the 24-year-old Detroit native has had to deal with a lot within the last calendar year.

Just being able to work on music has been a blessing for Chavis. During the recording process of his last project he was arrested as his past was beginning to catch up with him. Over the course of subsequent months Chandler spent most of the time in court. The culmination of the lessons learned from his past was released this week with The Call of the Wildan admirable deluge of self-expression in the form of emceeing and singing.

“It was stressing me out and I made all of this music based off of who I want to come in the game and compete with. A lot of people look for partnership and alliances with other people. Me, I’m not really into that. I’m more on the competitive side of the music.”

Things started looking up for Chavis earlier this year. He performed with Action Bronson at SxSW and everything seemed to be on the right path. It was when he returned home from Austin that another setback would befall him. But like all adversity he’s encountered, Chavis shrugged it off and moved forward.

“The day I came back from SxSW, the next morning the sheriff was at the door evicting me from my house. It was something where I was like, ‘whatever’ and I just gave it up and found my way. I feel like something really big is about to come for me and all this worldly material shit is whatever. I just want to make music and I’ll sacrifice whatever for that.”

Chavis Chandler’s Detroit blood is why he’s been able to turn problems into solutions. It’s where he learned how to be a man. The cold Midwestern winters and extensive underground rap scene has battle tested him for the national hip-hop scene and perhaps more importantly, the difficulties of life.

“I’m from the same neighborhood as J Dilla and I’m one of the only young emcees that’s from that same neighborhood that’s doing this kind of music at this caliber. I feel like if you grow up in Detroit you can make it anywhere. It breeds you so different… I found inspiration based off of the people I was listening to and what they were wearing. A lot of people fucked with me in my hood for that. People was calling me gay and shit so of course I had to beat a lot of motherfuckers up. I had to defend what I was wearing and that shit alone just shows you how crazy that can drive you just being in a city full of small-minded motherfuckers.

“The people I want to compete with is like Kanye [West] and Jay Z. I want to come into the studio with them niggas and play a record and be like, ‘Yeah, nigga this is what I’m working on and I want motherfuckers to go crazy over it…’ I want to leave my footprint in this shit and I want people to know who I am.”

Next Up: DeJ Loaf

Friday, December 19th, 2014


DeJ Loaf certainly isn’t the first artist from Detroit who’s a little out-of-pocket. The 23-year-old rapper, singer and songwriter’s buzz has skyrocketed as of late particularly due to her deviant clash of eccentric yet catchy melodies and the rough realities of where she came from. It’s the Motor City’s Eastside that claims home to DeJ. It’s there where she experienced the hard-knock detriment of being raised in a single parent household and witnessing how past struggle constructed present disadvantage.

“I came from a rough place. Everyone knows Detroit is a tough place to come from as a young child trying to survive. It definitely plays a big role.” The D is where the start and almost end of DeJ’s days as an artist lie. Before releasing her breakout song “Try Me,” her internal clock and will were coming to a standstill.

“I was in a dark place and I was on the verge of giving up musically. I was like, ‘Man I don’t know what I’m going to do, what is going on?’ I was just going to put my music out weekly and that’s how ‘Try Me’ came out because it was one of the first… Once ‘Try Me’ was going crazy I was like, ‘Oh wow!’ I’m onto something. People just love the song.” Giving up is far from what’s on DeJ Loaf’s agenda now. Recently appearing on 106 & Park and even performing in front of an impressed Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, Loaf and her ascend have provided her new life. A couple of other hometown heroes would help with the process as well.

Last month Loaf, amongst other luminaries from her native land, released “Detroit vs. Everybody,” a six-minute deluge of illustrious savagery repping all relevant in the city. Royce Da 5’9 would be the one to reach out to DeJ to appear on the track featuring everyone from Eminem to Big Sean. And while she’s never spoken to Em, it would be surprising if this turns out to be their only collaboration on wax.

“When I was in New York signing my deal with Columbia I got a call from Paul Rosenberg and [he] was telling me that Eminem was wanting to get into the studio and write with me and I was like, ‘Wow, really, that’s crazy!?’ I’m sure we’ll work out something in the future.” Currently DeJ Loaf is working on her debut album. It’s through that fans and media alike will really find out what the young and unique girl from Detroit is all about.

“I’m definitely going to put an album out top of the year… well not top of the year but like spring. I’m working on that for sure and that’s what I’m really ready to buckle down and do because I’ve been on the road doing shows.

“There’s no limit to the things I can do or get myself into. Music is just a foot in the door for me so you never know. I want to be legendary. I want to be one of the best to ever do it… I feel like I have the whole package. Not all female rappers have the whole package, which is why female rap hasn’t been poppin’ in so long, aside from Nicki Minaj. [It’s] ‘cause they don’t have that ‘it’ factor and that whole package and I feel like I do and I’m confident in that.”
