""what happened next blew me away in such a way I had chills""

Music has been around since the beginning of time. It is a reflection of ourselves, sometimes bringing out the greatest in us, and sometimes a release of the darkness in us. The instrumentals dance in our soul, while the lyrics speak to us emotionally. I personally, use music to escape from the "real world", to de-stress, unwind, or emotionally release what I cannot say outloud.
When I started the Behind the Scenes - When the Music Drops to feature music artists, it was because I had ran across so many bands and single artists that weren't "found". My go-to for music is not the radio, but rather sites like Instagram that people post videos of themselves, friends or family, showing how talented they are. Thats when I ran across Always Chasin...
His music is raw, full of emotion, and intriguing. The song I fell in love with instantly was "The Fly" featuring Murk. It had a slow start to it, soft tones, and rhythmic. What happened next, after about 30 seconds into it, blew me away in such a way I had chills, I couldn't stop listening to what then became my favorite song, which has stayed on repeat since.
I was honored Always Chasin gave me a chance to feature him as our first music artist on Drop Shop Texas, and as we sat down yesterday via video call for our interview, I realized the passion he has for his music, and the loyalty he has towards his listeners runs deep and that is truly hard to find. I needed to know more about his music and soon found out that Kanye West was the inspiration for him to have the courage to take his music to the studio, and release what he had inside for everyone to see. "I never heard anything like him before, lyrically" Always Chasin commented. "He kind of showed and taught me who I wanted to be," as a music artist, "through his music".

As I listened to more of his music, I couldn't help but wonder why I hadn't heard his name before, or see him anywhere as an "up-and-coming-artist". When asked why this hasn't happened, he simply explained one of the biggest challenges of being a music artist are the costs of the industry. While I listened to him explain everything has its costs, it upset me to know that people with such talent go without notice because the costs to "get noticed" are way out of budget for the majority of artists who have the talent. So why are they having to go broke on a chance to make their dreams come true?
Always Chasin took me further in his journey and spoke highly about his current producer, Freddy "Kinder" Perez, with Toshi Sudios, based down in Corpus Christi, who produces the beats to his music. "They made 25 different beats for 5 songs just to find the perfect sound for my lyrics for my 'Wake Up' album." As he spoke about Toshi studios, the gratitude towards them was very humble, from dropping beats, to supporting him, to helping with videography; they have been a true blessing for Always Chasin.

Speaking of beats, how about his lyrics....right? The majority of the songs from his first album have more of the rap lyrics, which put me in a zone of determination to let it all go, and mentally release the stress I'm holding on to. His newest album mentioned before, the 'Wake Up' is more of a vocal album, more emotions with a softer touch, allowing the listener to hear his softer side. As a rapper and vocalist, his talent is never-ending, both albums completely different, and a promise of his next project being even more diverse! "I write 100% of my lyrics. I carry a notepad around with me wherever I am, because the bars come out of nowhere. I try not to think about songs, I just jot them down as they come to me."
He has dreams of one day being able to perform in an arena, surrounded by thousands of fans. "I feed off the energy of a crowd, the bigger the crowd, the bigger my energy." I had to ask about stage-fright and if that has ever happened to him before. "I used to have bad stage-fright in the beginning. I feared I would mess up and everybody would see that." As he continued to do shows around Corpus Christi he grew more comfortable, realizing they were there to see him and "...they don't know what I have planned. They have no idea if I messed up or if that was apart of it. So I just focus on my energy."
Being born and raised in Corpus Christi, Texas, he grew up in a very diverse town. He has worked with rock bands, and other music artists and enjoys the collaboration. "I would say Corpus is just a lot of people who are talented....the music scene is so young and they can do anything...I am really excited to see where they take it and what happens."
It was so fun being able to sit down with Always Chasin and listen to him tell his story. 5 years ago, he had this dream of being a music artist, and he has definitely grown into one. Support him as a Texas artist and share his music, click the links below to listen to his music!

Still working on that hot first release.



Corpus Christi native AlwaysChasin was inspired by music and hip-hop at the very eager & influential age of 12 when his mother bought him Kanye's "Late Registration" album from a local dollar general, this is when AC's love for hip-hop was discovered. He first acknowledged his passion for rapping while free styling on a bus ride back home from a field trip to UT. After this revelation AC began to start cyphers around campus and would even ditch class early to roam the halls in search of other MC's to practice with. Starting a significant buzz around school AC was then invited to perform at the talent show that year. This was a huge turning point because it was evident to the crowd as well as himself that he was a natural performer. From high school talent shows, to winning the Best of The Best Hip-Hop Showcase, AC's raw talent continued to validate that he actually had what it takes to make undeniably great music. It wasn't until he graduated from high school in 2013 that he began to cultivate and refine his sound by recording himself in his home studio. Fast forward to 2017 after dropping several singles and unofficial projects on soundcloud AC decided to take the next step. Joining forces with Kinderr at Toshi Studios he put together his first official EP "My Last Good Day" which dropped on all major streaming platforms in November. Since his first release AC has racked up three music videos, multiple blog placements, and even a rare opportunity to meet and work with Cumbia Dj "El Dusty". AC is on track to have a huge year in 2019 anticipating at least three more videos that will be dropping in 2018 alongside his second EP release "Wake Up.” Whether you catch him now or later it’s evident you'll be hearing his name buzz very soon.
