Recently, I got the chance to sit with Chakuda. One of my favorite artists right now in the South Florida scene. I love his approach to music. Doesn’t have to say too much, doesn’t have to bend your mind with metaphors he just commands attention with the simple. That’s a gift that cannot be taught. Very involved in every aspect of his creative process this guy does not leave it to chance. From artwork, to production, & engineering. The finished product is always genuine, always him.
This isn’t conscious music. This isn’t hip-hop. It’s a vibe. Chakuda makes music for the real lifers. Really some shit I could smoke to, take with me on the road doesn’t really matter if that’s the type of thing you’re into.
