channelAPA.com had a chance to talk to music producer CHOPS. We talked to him about his music background and his experience with the Mountain Brothers back in the 90’s (one of the first Asian American hip-hop groups). After two albums and national TV commercials, the Mountain Brothers disbanded. CHOPS continued his career in hip hop behind the scenes by producing music for the likes of Bun B, Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, Chamillionaire, E-40, The Game, Ice Cube, Paul Wall, San Quinn, and Keak Da Sneak. Things have changed a lot since he first started in the business. The cost of production has dramatically dropped coupled with the pervasiveness of Internet has given people the opportunity to showcase their work around the world. CHOPS is still getting creative. You can hear some of his work off his latest mixtape “Songs Your Girl Likes.”
He gives shout outs to Far East Movement, dumbfoundead, Roscoe Umali, and Decipher. If you’re up for a collabo, hit CHOPS up on twitter here.
