Quickly rising, DC-based artist Chaz French shares his latest track “No Shade” featuring Wale today! “No Shade” comes fresh off the release of Chaz French’s energetic and expressive single “A Go!”, which was premiered exclusively via Noisey and has already received over 25,000 digital spins. “No Shade” is a melodic ode to an unstable relationship expressed by Chaz French; battling back and forth with deep emotion towards your significant other who fails to reciprocate the same feelings. As Chaz French prepares to release the follow up to his 2014 mixtape Happy Belated, “No Shade” will act as a supplemental teaser — not offered on the forthcoming project.
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. French, who is releasing his next project through his team’s 368 Music Group, has recently performed buzzworthy shows at SXSW in Austin, TX, opened for Waka Flocka at the historic Howard Theatre, and collaborated with fellow DC native GoldLink..
