In 2017 was definitely the year of the underdogs; with new artist breaking Billboard history and new acts as well as sounds dominating the airwaves. But, it looks like 2018 maybe the year of the producers; with the rise of young fresh music engineers you can only expect new hits and innovate sounds. Meet Chase Dalton Rose aka ChaseTheMoney. The 21-year-old St Louis producer who is bringing a new sound to the industry. Coming from a city known for its industrial sounds mixing with the style of its neighbouring city, Chicago; ChaseTheMoney is reinventing “what hip-hop” should sound like.
ChaseTheMoney has worked immensely with rap artist Valee; they describe their relationship as a Mannie Fresh and Lil Wayne partnership which derived from an Instagram DM, and the rest is history.
