Miss Special met up with Chaundon at the YC The Cynic & Yuri Beats release party for “Good Morning, Midnight” to talk about his past and future projects.
They spoke about his Golden Era Mondays, including the banging “Can’t Pretend” and its producer H. Dizzy Flow. They also spoke about him flying to California to work with Jansport J on a future full project.
He talks about feeling disconnected from his records because he had to do some much background work, but felt a certain freedom with “The Jammington”
He says that the idea behind the cover art for “The Jammington” was to show that women do listen to his music.
“I used to record his older brother back in the day and YC used to come to the studio. At the time I didn’t know it was him. I didn’t know that a great emcee was about to happen 7, 8 years later. After I heard his first mixtape, that I actually put out on my website. I just believed in him..I told every blog I knew that they had to check it out” he tells about YC The Cynic when speaking about how he chose the features on “The Jammington”.
His next album “The Freshington” with producer Kuddie Fresh is expected in March or April of 2013 and Chaundon has nothing short of amazing to say about it. He proclaims that with this album he will be leaving the underground. “Kuddie Fresh really gave me another tax bracket sound. I’m a shiny suit rapper! I’m not an underground rapper, I’m not a book bagger, I’m sorry! I have book bagger tendencies with the lyrics but I’m a shiny suit rapper. Do you not listen to the lyrics?” He calls himself ” the dope answer for the Drake’s of the world” by giving you that commercial sound but with raw rhymes.
“I’m talking about it like I’m listening to someone else’s record. This is how I felt when I first heard “Illmatic” and “Ready To Die” and “Reasonable Doubt”, this is that feeling.. This is how I felt when I did “The Jammington” and I was right.”
Following “The Freshington” he plans on releasing “The Dopington” with producers Family Biz Entertainment. “If you think ‘The Freshington is gonna be on the radio, you’re gonna hate me by the time ‘The Dopington’ comes out!”
