[Interview] Record Producers: Chase N Dough
Chase N Dough may still be a new name for some of our readers, but I guarantee you’ve heard this man’s production from his work with King Louie, LEP Bogus Boys, Lil’ Durk, Naledge & many more of Chicago’s established and rising emcees. It’s evident from my first contact with Chase N Dough via email, how seriously he takes his craft. From production to rapping, he also edits videos and does graphic design, avidly showcasing his dedication to the art of Hip Hop. When asked about his sound that has helped define the “Drill” movement, Chase stated, “I’m trying to steer away from the drill music just to show my versatility… People come to me for the dirty south beats because that’s what’s popular right now. I wanna work with more R & B artists.”
One characteristic that is vital to the success of an artist is self-awareness. It is that kind of awareness that allows someone to recognize changes around them and have the ability to accept growth as a musician. This is what Chase N Dough practices and it’s no surprise he sees his future self as an established producer with top 100 Billboard songs under his belt. Now with his iPack 1.5 compilation mixtape ready to be released (any moment now), Chase N Dough is ready for the next step in his musical career. Read on in our latest Record Producers Interview to hear about how he first started producing, linking with King Louie, & the everyday elements of life that inspires his music.
