Chief the Skinny Mac sits down with DJ Scream, DJ Princess Cut, & Amber Jaii for the Hoodrich Radio Indie Spotlight!
He talks about the meaning behind his name and how he got started rapping. He credits his musical influences to Memphis rap legends like 8Ball & MJG, Kingpin Skinny Pimp, and more.
He talks about overcoming hurdles in his past, including dropping out of high school in 10th grade and legal problems from being involved in the streets that threatened to put him away for a long time.
When he isnt rapping, Chief the Skinny Mac loves eating great food. He shouts out Pappadeaux, What’s Crackin’ on Candler Rd, and Spondivits as a few of his favorite places to eat in Atlanta.
As a word to young aspiring artists, Chief advises them to build a connection with God because that relationship will last when others end.
