It’s no secret Drake’s nationwide tour has been documented more than Obama’s first 100 days in office, but I’m really only posting this for one reason, the Surf Club shout out at the :26 mark. While I only know Chase personally, I do know that the entire group is one of the hardest working entities in music right now, probably the main reason I rock with their music so much. “Beach Boys meet the hood” is probably the most accurate description I’ve heard thus far because it defines their style almost to the tee.

It’s crazy because I actually met the homie Chase on some fluke sh*t in all honesty. The story plays out like this. I happened to download their record with Weezy, “I Can’t Miss”, awhile back and felt it so much that I posted it here.  A few hours later, homie left a comment on the site saying how much he appreciated the gesture. Hell, what he didn’t know was that I appreciated the comment more than him appreciating the upload. From there, we’ve chopped it up about everything from music, to sports, to life in the industry, even to these young ladies. He’s also responsible for assisting me with my most popular post to date.

Regardless, the progression of Chase, Chili Chill, B. Carr, Hit Boy and the group’s First Lady, Stacy Barthe, is becoming harder and harder to ignore.  With co-signs from Robin Thicke, Diddy, Drake, Polow Da Don and Don Cannon to name a few, the stamp of approval is there, the rest of the industry just has to open the envelope.
