We had the good fortune of connecting with Trayce Chapman and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Trayce, career-wise, where do you want to be in the end?
The end goal is to leave a lasting impact on the hip-hop culture and earn the respect of the gate keepers. I want to be on the level of Jay Z, Lil Wayne, Tupac, Biggie by the end of my career.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’m proud to say I have a unique sound, one that’s charismatic and unique. One that is also distinct enough to attract my own fanbase, which was huge because obviously we all have doubts about whether that will ever happen for us as artists. It was difficult understanding the big picture and how long it takes to get good at music, the number one challenge is self-doubt and once I got out of my own way I learned what resilience was. I want the world to know my story is one about betting on yourself and manifesting so much belief in the process that you create your own definition of success.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would take them to Boney’s for some BBQ! Its right in the heart of downtown Denver and its a place owned me a friend of mine. For the purpose of this question lets just say the city isn’t shut down from COVID yeah? I would take them to broadway straight to the green mile because tourists really have a huge infatuation for Colorado weed. I believe our downtown is one of the more pretty skylines in the country as well so we would go to 16th street mall and sight see. A trip to lookout mountain while cliché is still very scenic and I would also do that as well.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Rest Is For Billionaires is the company I am managed by and they are responsible for a tremendous amount of success in my growth as an artist and a person.
