Since day one rapper Chae Hawk has been an independent hustler. His journey into the music business began in Buffalo where he developed his vision for a dark and aggressive pop-rap album titled Dance Party For The Heavy Hearted. As he toured around the country, which included a long stint in West Hollywood, he met the right producers to help him create D.P.F.T.H.H. But then something unexpected happened; he ended up with a completely different album called Blues of a Journeyman, an account of his cross country adventure to create the ultimate album, still stuck in his head. “Each track comes from my experience of creating an album over the span of three years,” Hawk said. “Determination, girls, herb, business, pleasure, and heartache were all a part of that journey” Now, at age 27 Hawk is working harder than ever on the dark, romantic, and honest album that Dance Party For The Heavy Hearted is destined to be. He’s an underdog, working his way up in the industry, from the grimy streets of the West Side of Buffalo on his track “We Will,” to getting that money in his latest video for “M.O.N.E.Y.” Dance Party is destined to hit the shelves in 2012 but you won’t have to wait that long to get a taste of what is to come. Don’t miss it when Team Radio presents Chae Hawk this Saturday (Nov 12) at Club Diablo with local rap group Koolie High, and hip hoppers Mic Excel, Grabbitz, Money Mizzark, and D-Flur.
