Apparently Smoke (also known as Chevy P) loves it out in Fort Lauderdale. We sat down with Smoke “Chevy P” from Field Mob as he discussed his latest project K.A.N.G. If you didn’t know Smoke is quite the comedian, or maybe it’s the effect of the warm Florida vibe on a ‘kuntry’ (country, for those who ain’t up on the lingo) boy. But he had us rolling the whole interview from the random cuss words, random talk of double heads and his description of K.A.N.G. Taking us to school, the Grammy-award winning emcee broke it down this way: KANG is a way of life; how country folk do. In other words Kuntry Ass Niggas Grindin’. It’s also how folk back in Smoke’s Georgia hometown (including his grandpa) pronounce ‘king’.
Then we finally got to the juicy part, where Chevy dropped word on the ‘Trappin’ Out The Car’ single for which he was going to shoot a video. After 11 years in the game, Smoke’s about ready to drop a hot new LP; that’s LP, not mixtape. And though Shawn Jay appears in two jams in Smoke’s 19-track project, don’t mistake this for a Field Mob CD. This is the ‘Kang’ marking his territory as a solo artist.
About the double heads, it came about when we teased Smoke’s birth sign out of him. “Gemini,” he said. “Shout out to all the double heads out there.” The former Field Mob man insists that two heads are better than one but his next few words left us wondering which kind of head he was talking about. We were in the swanky
Club Karu after all. And Smoke was representing as usual for the 229 with
‘Serena Williams green’ Js.
Back to K.A.N.G. Perhaps the track that stands out for me is
‘On the Road Again’. I don’t know if it’s the guitars whining lazily in the background or the
crunk drum pattern skipping around between my ears. Whatever it is, Smoke, with some help from Nikkiya shreds the track with his
raspy southern growl. Clean Millionaire is enough to set any club on fire and get even grandma leaning out of a ‘lac, chain swinging. And it only gets better with no lesser than T-Pain lacing two cuts. Other artists who make appearances are Texas’ Trae the Truth and Young Joc from ATL. Wanna get crunk while ingesting a ‘kuntry’ lingo lesson? Of course you do, so cop the CD, peep the video, live it up like a kang!
