Chisom. (Chisom Uzosike) is a 23-year old producer, rapper, & creative director, born in Detroit & raised in Maryland. He’s the eldest son of Nigerian immigrants, & the first in his family born in America. While his father exposed him to music from all corners of Africa in the house, young Chisom discovered Hip-Hop music in elementary school, where his classmates introduced him to Baltimore’s local Hip-Hop/R&B station.
He began producing Hip-Hop music at age 17, inspired by stars like DJ Premier, The Neptunes, & Kanye West. Drawing from his love of music of all genres, keen ear for samples, & Nigerian roots, he quickly developed a striking, eclectic style. His work has been praised by music critics & featured on Sway in the Morning, DJBooth, The Fader, & more.
Gifted with a smooth flow & deep, resonant voice, Chisom. combines slick wordplay with real-life themes & vibrant production. His cultural/musical influences shine through every song – The verbal dexterity & swagger of the East Coast, entrancing rhythms of Afrobeat, & ultra cool, laid-back attitude of the West Coast.
In his debut video and single “This One Chick”, Chisom is on a mission to nab his dream girl, and nothing is going to stop him. Spittin’ smooth bars over Jay-Z’s soulful 2001 “Girls, Girls, Girls” beat (from The Blueprint), the Detroit-based emcee manages to breathe new life into the classic track for a fresh new era. Lyrically on-point, he effortlessly raps about pursuing several shorties, all of whom possess major potential.
“I know this one chick out in Ypsi’/ She likes to roll up, kick back, listen to Nipsey/ Certified stoner! She lit like my joint from the south/ Memphis, we get lifted then we hit Waffle House.” As he does the roll call of hotties, each one makes an appearance, looking super comfy and cozy on the couch right beside him. Chisom is well aware of the sacrifices he may need to make to find the right one… “My lady from LA…she’s high maintenance. Looking at her plate like ‘How do I pay for this?’ Well-connected though, courtside at the Clippers, Courtesy of pops, so I don’t mind paying dinner.” Some girls are worth it, no?
