The Groove Nashville

"... too G to take a knee, still I gave you all of me."A pivotal force in the early '10s NYC rap revival, now LA-based rapper and producer Chuck Strangers steps into the limelight on new solo LP A Forsaken Lover's Plea.The album sounds markedly lush, candid rhymes bolstered by a slew of guest producers-including The Alchemist, Animoss and Strangers himself. Chuck's own production feels current without ditching it's previous homeliness, a seamless compliment to his honest, lived-in raps. A collection of fellow New York rap torchbearers lace the album with guest verses, including Pro Era comrade Joey Bada$$ & Flatbush Zombies' Erick the Architect.Strangers' tangled romance with hip-hop is the crux of the project-the culmination of a decade's unwavering dedication to his craft, with it's lofty highs, inevitable lows, and lessons of humility and patience.Mixed by Trevor WrightMastered by ZerohArt direction & design by Commission StudioPhotography by Jack McKain
