Young Chop is most famous for producing Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like,” but now he’ll be more notable for getting Chief Keef to laugh. Just typing that phrase feels strange. Via Fader:
Young Chop is loud and squiggly, with a generous laugh. The teenage producer behind “I Don’t Like,” “Love Sosa” and “Hate Bein Sober” (plus since-retracted tweets challenging Keef and Kanye West, who roguely remixed “Don’t Like”) stopped by FADER offices last week, where he waved at the interns like a victorious politician and squirmed around on our couch. From his perch, he talked about the importance of a good laugh in the studio, lapping up hometown attention and the grime and melody that makes his beats feel new.
