EDITORS’ NOTES

The prolific Chicago trap producer takes his own turn at the mic. A slow, sinister affair with guest spots from Vic Mensa, Riff Raff, and longtime affiliate Chief Keef, King of Chop drops the hammer early and rarely lets up. Like his beats, Chop’s rapping is low-key but ominously sure-footed, from the twinkly, textbook trap of “Ring Ring Ring” and “Between the Lines” to the unconventional “Old Hunnits New New Hunnits,” which puts a fresh spin on the style Chop himself helped popularize.

TITLE TIME

About Young Chop

Chicago hip-hop producer Young Chop was born Tyree Pittman in 1993. He grew up enamored with rap music and was making his own beats by age 11. His early love of production only grew, and alongside childhood friend Chief Keef, he honed his craft, working on production for many of Chief Keef's singles. Young Chop's debut album, Precious, dropped in 2013, showcasing both his skill for rhymes and for production. While constantly working on his own material, Chop's list of production credits continued expanding, with new work on tracks by Soulja Boy, Rick Ross, Big Sean, Ty Dolla $ign, Juicy J, and many others. He followed Precious with 2014's Still and went on to release multiple mixtapes and albums over the next few years, all while steadily growing his portfolio of production work for some of the biggest names in the game. ~ Fred Thomas
