- What is your name and what city do you rep?
My name is Choplif3 J3W (the 3’s are e’s)
I’m from Milwaukee WI. North side Uptown are
- What is unique about you and your music?
I'm unique because of my sound.Everyone tells me they have never heard my flow and style before. That's how I like it ,because it’s only one CHOPLIF3 GANG,no bap.
I don’t sound like everybody else. Nobody can say Choplif3 "took Dey sauce"(style),
I’m coming original,but you knew that!
- What shaped your music?
My life shaped my music.
Seeing real life shit like a feign od and his
kit falling off his lap,being in a trap wit no lights and hearing rats in the wall, motherfuckers trying to raise the window up on you and rob/kill you while you sleep, Things like; motherfuckers backdooring their day ones.
It’s all kind of shit that comes with being in a low-income community and being black. I took it and painted a picture….A masterpiece.
I realized I was going to make music professionally when I dropped my “MIDNITE REFLECTIN” ft. Big Reeze on SoundCloud. Within 48 hrs it had over 100 views,so I said fuck it and dropped my “Took A Nigga Biih”. To this day it gets numerous of plays and good feedback, Mfs keep telling me to keep going, They haven’t been hearing good music and they need good music. It makes me feel good to know I’m needed, (TANB is lit and it’s one of my fan’s favorites and definitely a classic by me. Along with “Jarad Higgins ft. Brudderman ayooliii)
- When did you realize you were going to make music professionally?
- What type of music do you listen to?
I listen to all kinds of music except country. It’s too depressing. It sounds like they all got done wit their song and drove off a cliff. lol
But, I fuck with all kinds of music. Shout out all my fans overseas wit the different sounds. I fuck with it.
- Who, to you, is the most undervalued music artist?
I feel like it’s a lot of artists that are like a diamond in the dirt u know?
They are shining hard ,but waiting to be found. I gotta say that my slime Big Reeze, @dollas.makecentz40 doesn’t get enough recognition for putting motherfuckers in mode, making shit lit, and getting motherfukers teed up.He makes you want to get paper or say fuck a weak ass cheap ass bitch that hurt you.
Cuddy fucking shit up and I feel like the world should know bout him too.
- How do you prepare for your performances?
I prepare for my performances by listening to Juice WRLD, LIL BABY, and JORDAN .
I have come too soon fa nun no bap. Matter fact I had DJ Gustav to play “Wishing Well” right before I took the mic at The Inferno Lounge in West Bend WI.
I also pray,because you want good energy all around u know?
And of course I roll up a fatty lol you knew daaat!
Just being who I am makes me go BONKERS in da booth. Being around lit motherfuckers that are teed u know? Shout out my engineer Macho Mil @Machomil414 He is the BEST!!! Fuck with him in da Milwaukee south side area!!…Or if I just caught a pop that's spending fr fr I b teed!!! Or if I met a cold ass bitty or Thot trot? Wat?! I’m putting this on my song!!! On Vonnie's grave. To be honest,that's where a lot of my songs came from.Being teed from one of those situations. So yea,thinking about something that happened in my life or that's going on. As I did this interview, It ignites my flow. I barely write shit though.
- What ignites your (song) writing flow?
- What do you do when you don't do music (creative or otherwise) and that you are passionate about?
When I’m not doing music,I’m working out. You know I gotta stay ready,so I ain’t gotta get ready!
Shout-out ta unc for spending wit me and dropping jewels. You can learn something from the "ol heads". They have all the knowledge. RIP pops I miss u smh…….. but I be doing all kinds of shit with my family. Going to the movies, shopping online lol, I got flavor like now laters,so I gotta stay right u know? First impression is everything and as an artist I gotta" look da part".
Ummmm lately I have been catching BMF on Apple TV.So, shout out to them and Lil Meech.Free Big Meech!
I don't really do clubs/bars. That shit be pointless. If I ain’t going to fuck the stage or VIP lol no bap. I’m passionate about everything I do In life…. I don't do part time or lazy shit omk.
I’m very passionate bout skateboarding lol I met P-Rod, Daewon Song, Greg lutzka, Rick Howard, Anthony Anderson, They all motivated that shit.
Success to me is being able to get up and be like "Damn,I can go and do anything today. Be stress free and not worry about the cost…..or limitations"
…Applesauce 2 A Boss, What the fuck is a loss?
- What do you wish you were told when you first started rapping that you think would help anyone recently starting artists out?
I wish I was told that this industry isn’t what you think it is. It’s so much goofy shit with contracts, limitations, and sacrifices. Smh all for what? A dollar?! Keep your money. I’ll pass. I wish somebody told me how much work you really have to put in for social media promo. Smh,this shit isn't easy if you don't have patience.
Hire a motherfucker or don’t fuck with this shit. Lol,it’s a lot,no bap.
