A Waste Of Time with ItsTheReal


#136: Chuck Inglish

This week on A Waste of Time with ItsTheReal we welcome one half of The Cool Kids, the influential producer and rapper, Chuck Inglish to the Upper West Side! Chuck discusses growing up in Detroit the son of an auto worker and a nurse, hearing dice games outside his house that reminded him of rap album skits, seeing Cecil Fielder pull up in a car straight out of a Dr. Dre video, and playing drums in his friends' Sublime-like band. Chuck talks about how a skateboard accident got him into making beats, what he would have done if music wasn't his career, what the city of Chicago means to him, and the fear that existed when label heads started to inquire about The Cool Kids. We get into the sound Chuck defined, the influence it's had across music, and in his most revealing statements yet, why exactly Chuck and Mikey took their hiatus and why right now was the right time to link back up. All that, plus working with Bun B, Asher Roth, and Kid Cudi, hanging out at Alchemist's home studio and Mac Miller's home studio, predicting success for Fetty Wap, what he saw early in Drake, and so much more!
