Chancellor dominates with a healthy mix of bravado and biting realism. Introspective commentary, melodic delivery and a scrappy “out-the-mud” mentality speak to the time he spent cutting his teeth on the streets of his hometown where the perennially salty ethos is a perfect breeding ground for battle tested microphone fiends. Appealing to the streets while improving upon the prevailing aesthetic perfected by the stars of the south and the 6ix, “No Man’s Island” offers solid proof that Miles Chancellor may have what it takes to become a giant among men. On his second project, “West End Chza”, throughout 15 tracks, Chancellor tenaciously approaches each song in celebration of the odds he’s defeated. http://www.okayplayer.com/news/miles-chancellor-no-mans-island-lp-stream.html
I have the luxury of being related to Miles so I was able to see him grow from where he first started and to where he is now. I’m so proud of him and his accomplishments from his two albums to all his performances.
He keeps his fans pleased by dropping music frequently in between albums, I remember the excitement I would feel when he dropped his singles after the release of his debut album “No Man’s Island”
On “No Man’s Island” Miles recounts his family trials, friend situations and his own personal battles but it is accompanied by songs that are good-spirited like ‘End of Summer.’
He followed that album up with his second album “West End Chza”, an album that connects him to his roots in West Philadelphia, shouts out his family and shouts out himself.
A talented rapper that keeps true to himself with his music – he has his own sound(s), he raps and he belts out some melodies.
West Philadelphia’s unshakable artist Miles Chancellor presents his introspective album, West End Chza. Throughout 15 tracks, he melodically raps with confidence and at some points, he also sings in rich melodies. Here, Chancellor tenaciously approaches each song in celebration of the odds he’s defeated. He’s hellbent on shining. “I made this project with the intention of following up the project I released earlier this year, NO MAN’S ISLAND, but it turned into more like a second installment of a growing trilogy,” Chancellor told The FADER over email. “It’s a continuation of my story, a reflection of how I and how the people around me feel at times being from where we’re from. West End has become more than an album title, its a badge of honor, a mindset, and a movement.”
Miles performed at SXSW 2017 on March 17th.
Miles is an underground rapper but I believe in his growth and his success. I believe in his ability to take over.
