First I wanna start off by saying how much of a fan I am of the Chicago movement, and especially Andrew Barber, who is personal inspiration to me. I love the way the sound was when it was coming out and how it’s evolved into the “Drill” scene today. The sound was so much different than every other scene. The visuals and stories of life in Chicago were horrors to some, and it made it truly interesting to watch the scene, and who was going to be the next big star.
In 2012, people knew Kanye West, they knew Lupe Fiasco, but it all changed quickly and there was a new crop of artists. Lil Durk, Lil Reese, Fredo Santana, Chief Keef, and many many more where starting to do numbers on the boards and on YouTube. These guys were killing it, but how did these young stars get such good production? One man who revolutionized the game was Young Chop. The funny, always smiling Chop is likable in every way. He’s always made it clear that he tries to stay away from all the bullshit that goes on in Chicago. Young Chop basically blew Chief Keef up with his 3 massive hits, “Love Sosa”, “3Hunna” and “I Dont Like”.
Young Chop, born Tyree Pittman is one of the most talented producers in the world. His signature beat tag and his heavy 808’s became a fixture and when I heard “Young Chop On Da Beat”, I was excited. I’ve been following Young Chop on social media for some time now, I think going on 5 years. He’s one of the best follows and always shows who he’s working with, and some even funnier shit that happens in Chicago.
Young Chop has worked with almost everyone in the game. He owns his own independent label called Chop Squad and has his own roster of artists. He is also a part of BandKamp, and frequently collaborates with his Chicago brothers. Young Chop has made hits for French Montana, Ace Hood, King Louie, Big Sean and recently produced “Victims” off Lil Durk’s “They Forgot” album. Young Chop recently stopped by the No Jumper headquarters and chopped it up with Adam22 (no pun intended), and talked about his come up, and a ton of different topics. Check it out below!
