PopWrapped sat down with Chef Sean to dish on all things entertainment industry and his world. Here’s an exclusive look at the interview.
PopWrapped: What inspired the single “Color Money”, your current single and music video out right now?
Chef Sean: Well, I just wanted to have fun on this track, and do something a little different than what I normally put out.
PW: Why did you want to put out Rap tracks apart from Chef Sean & Blaze, your Trap Rock group?
CS: Prior to working with the band, I put out straight hip hop songs. I just like to keep working with all genres of music.
PW: How is working on Hip Hop as opposed to Trap Rock in the studio different? Is the writing and producing process different for you or the same?
CS: No, it’s the same process. However, when I work with my Trap Rock band, I get to work with a great group of guys that are also great musicians.
PW: When did you start your love for producing and songwriting?
CS: I started writing, and producing my own songs when I was a kid in grammar school. I would sneak, and put lyrics on paper in my school notebooks.
PW: A little birdie told us, your cousin (Chance The Rapper) is skyrocketing the charts in music right now. Any influence on each other musically? Any collaboration’s in the works?
CS: Yes he is, and I wish him the best…I was the older cousin, so he hung with me a lot. He’s pretty busy now, but that was the plan….
PW: Any plans for a full EP release in the near future?
CS: Yes, I’m working toward that now.
PW: How does it feel to grace the Billboard charts this summer?
CS: It’s incredible, and such a Blessing!!!
PW: What do you love more your music or your acting career?
CS: I love them both … I actually did music first … I won first place doing a “Michael Jackson Beat It” performance when I was 5 years old. After that, I went to an audition with my mom, and they had audition’s going on for Jungle Book. I got three callbacks… didn’t get the part, but it started my acting.
PW: What’s coming up for next for Chef Sean?
CS: The world, Chico, and everything in it!!! Praying for Blessings from God!
