Chapoze is an independent hip-hop artist on the rise from Capitol Heights, Maryland. Since 2017, he has been signed to the independent record label Motherland Money Gang Records, a.k.a. MLMG. Originally from Cameroon, Chapoze has come to America on a mission to dominate the music industry.
Chapoze has been making music since he was only 12 years old. As a young child born in Cameroon, he had always dreamed of becoming a worldwide sensation in the music industry. He finally had the opportunity to create his own single for the first time with “Stunning,” which he recorded at Spiral Studios. The first time he was able to showcase his talent onstage was at an open-mic event in Atlanta, Georgia. He later signed to MLMG in 2017.
Chapoze went on to release five more singles, “Flex (OJ Tryna Flex,” “Place Your Order,” “New Wave,” and his two latest releases for 2020, “Big Racks” and “Issues.” His latest releases have created quite a stir in the rap scene in Atlanta, where his independent record label, Motherland Money Gang Records, is based. His work has been praised by other artists such as Lil Quill and Yung Mal from 1017/Alamo records, Jmurk, Hazel-E, and many more.
Chapoze was recognized in the 2018 XXL Artists to Watch list. Chapoze is a YRN/Migo Gang affiliate. He used this relationship to release one of the hardest underground mixtapes, SRT the Mixtape hosted by YRNDJKESSEL on platforms like Audiomack and My Mixtapez last May 20, 2020.
Chapoze is often collaborating with other artists. He recorded a melodic afrobeat track called “New Wave” with one of Cameroon’s finest Afropop sensations, Tzy Panchak. The track was produced by Cameroonian rapper Yan Dollar. Chapoze also collaborates often with his cousin, Travi Tressor.
Chapoze has had a history of getting into conflict with the law. The young rapper now seems to have a good head on his shoulders and has been staying out of trouble and out of the way of law enforcement officers. Despite this and his partnership with MLMG, his criminal past and immigration status still has a great impact on his career. His manager, GT, also known as The General, revealed in an interview that his team and camp are doing the best they can to find some of the best attorneys for some of his criminal and immigration cases just like his fellow Atlanta-based rapper, 21 Savage, who was born in London.
Despite being rough around the edges, Chapoze has a respectable following, who firmly believes that he has what it takes to be the new voice of Africa and beyond. Chapoze is often described as a productive and respectable artist by his peers. The diverse African rapper brings a mixture of sound and energy as well as fashion in all his works. The rapper himself believes that he can go far in his career, especially under MLMG Records.
MLMG Records LLC is an international record label that signs artists from all around the world with different sounds and art culture. MLMG artists have a very diverse sound ranging from afro-trap to hip-hop. The label features a range of artists that offer a sound for every type of music lover.
As Chapoze continues to pursue his music career, he hopes to gain new fans, travel to perform at different major festivals, create new music, and go on tour to open up for major mainstream artists.
