Artists today tend to rely heavily on dope beats and catchy hooks to draw in their listeners. That is why it was refreshing to hear an EP from an artist where hooks were hardly used, and he still managed to keep my attention throughout the whole project. Bay Area artist, Chase Black, recently dropped a new project titled BlackWorld III: Change. This project follows his 2019 album release, BlackWorld II: Midlife Crisis, which is also full of dope songs. Aside from rapping and songwriting, Chase Black is also a graphic designer who creates his own covers. BlackWorld III: Change is a 6 track EP produced mostly by Rich tha Gunna, with Kash Beatz, and Ncredable producing “Thoughts” and “Lane Switch III.” Chase brings high energy and dope lyrics to each song. He allows the beat to draw you in before giving you an earful of lyricism. Although a couple of the songs could have been longer, I loved listening to this project. From his lyrics to his beat selection, Chase Black has created a solid EP for anyone to ride to. We look forward to seeing what he does next.
