The gift giving season has arrived early for fans of Chaz French. That’s because he has blessed them with a new mixtape, Kill Volume 1. And yes, calling it the first of a volume means that there will be more on the way. Check out what Chaz had to say about the project:

I’ve had an incredible 2017 with my debut album out and all – but so has the DMV when it comes to hip hop. I decided it was a good time to put together a short playlist of records, kind of like a soundtrack that pays homage to daily DMV life, with some of my friends also making a lot of noise here. I wanted to show the unity amongst the artist community there, shine light on new talent, and pay homage to our culture.

I called the mixtape “KILL” because the slang term has so many different uses where we’re from. Not only is the term “KILL” super familiar in everyday lingo, but it’s also our mentality when we hop on wax to make our presence felt as a region and as a force in the hip-hop game. This is the first volume in a series of playlists that I plan to put out, and I am thrilled to be able to round out my year with it. Hopefully everyone enjoys and learns a new slang term from my area too!

Well there you have it! Stop what you’re doing and listen to Kill Volume 1 right now!
