Fake Shore Drive recently caught up with budding Chicago producer Young Chop to discuss he recent production deal with Warner Bros. Records. During the interview, Chop revealed that fellow Chi-Town artist Kanye West reached out to him and frequent collaborator Chief Keef. He said that not only did he send Yeezy about a dozen of is original productions, but that the G.O.O.D. Music impresario is looking to link up with Chief in the studio.
“[Kanye West’s] digging it. He has like 12 Young Chop beats right now as a matter of fact,” he said. “He’s a fan of [Chief] Keef…[there’s a collaboration] that’s happening.”
Chop also spoke on his production deal with Warner, who he explained discovered him through Chief Keef’s single “3Hunna.” He explained that while the deal isn’t exactly a traditional record deal, it will allow him to get his records to major artists.
“I had a deal on the table. The Warner deal was on the table for a little while. And after looking at it, my manager and I decided it was the best look. So we took the deal with Warner Bros,” he explained. “The record that got their attention was ‘3Hunna.’ Then they started looking at the ‘I Don’t Like’ and everything that I did for the Chief Keef movement. They really loved all of that… it’s somewhat like a record deal, but it’s more of a publishing thing. You’ve gotta get your beats to artists, and get placements. You’ve gotta make the beats hot enough to get placements on major albums.”
