For the past several years, Chop the Father has been one of the most unique up-and-coming emcees in the Underground Hip-Hop scene of Houston, Texas. In a scene that is more commonly associated with artists such as the Geto Boys, UGK, and DJ Screw among others. Chop the Father has fired his own path. Pulling influence from legendary Hip-Hop artists such as Big L, Nas, and the Notorious BIG, Chop the Father has made a name for himself incorporating high brow punchlines and colorful pop culture references into his songs. As well as crafting to solemn stories of self reflection and past hardships into his music.
Incorporating his appreciation for dark, brooding production Chop the Father has creates a unique tapestry of projects that have set his catalog apart from run-of-the-mill artists in Houston’s local Hip-Hop scenes. Having worked with artists such as D-Rell, NVY JONEZ LKR, and releasing a string of mixtapes produced by Riverside-based producer Accosta the Man; Chop the Father has illustrated that the appreciation for classic Boom Bap production extends well outside on the boundaries of New York City and the East Coast.
