Wave Chapelle - Do or Die

DJBooth_logo2x

Some rappers pick up the mic on a lark, and if the public isn't interested in what they're peddling, they'll return to their day job with only a slight sense of regret for what might have been. On the other end of the spectrum, you have Memphis-based Booth newcomer Wave Chapelle, a recent signee to Yo Gotti's CMG label, for whom success in the hip-hop game is quite literally a matter of life or death. As he puts it on the record's hook: “That's the difference between you and I / This your hobby but for me this sh*t is Do or Die.” Despite the urgency of his bars, the record's overall mood is pleasantly laid-back, thanks to the boardwork of DJ Charlie White. The Booth-acclaimed producer backs Chapelle's determined bars with languid percussion and ebbing, flowing synth tones. Feeling it? Then stay tuned; Do or Die isn't part of a larger set, but we'll keep you posted on the artist's plans as further details emerge.
