24: As an artist how would you describe your sound and why?
Ya Boi Chad: I describe my sound as branded. Most of the time try to stay away from the average thing that rappers do as far as beats and the kinda thing they rap about.

I’m trying to have a branded sound as mush as possible.

24: What do you think about the hip hop game today?
Ya Boi Chad: I think artist are at there most fun. A lot of people are not focused on siting down tryna be focused on lyrics and metaphors and similies, everybody is trying to have fun which is a good thing. On the contrary with that I think alot of people are too image struck, they a lil bit afraid to be themselves in front of the camera. If you a gangsta be a gangsta and if you know you not a gangsta dont be trying to pursue some type of facade that you know you dont fit. A lot of that been going on in the hip hop industry more the I ever seen since i been attracted to hip hop.
