My first project (Happy Belated) was about my personal struggles and things I’ve been through. This time around I wanted to speak to the struggles of my fans and people who stumble across my music by addressing the struggles I feel like we all go through,” saysChaz French. “Everybody has some type of struggle and that’s what’s shapes us as people. We gain strength as we endure the struggle. Just know that the struggle isn’t forever and it takes a little longer to get there when it’s real. All of our blessings are coming… These Things Take Time.”
Transparent and often unapologetic about his past, Chaz French’s lyrics to his vibey music are inspired by his own life experiences. He delivers his art in its purest form and people have gravitated to his honest lyrics throughout his career. Born in D.C. and raised in Maryland, French describes himself as a survivor having experienced an almost fatal car accident and homelessness. He credits those traumatic experiences to his tenaciousness. Most recently, Chaz’s summer festival run included Electric Forest, Hopscotch, JMBLYA, Trillectro, and Fashion Meets Music Festival. French has started the year strong on tour legs with Wale, GoldLink, and SBTRKT – also playing some of the biggest stages at SXSW. The limitless rapper will end the year just as strong!
