Chase Kephart, otherwise known as BECALLI BRUH, made his entry on NEW LEASE MUSIC back in November with track, ‘Leanin’. As his offering was a big hit with you guys, I’ve invited the upcoming emcee from Nashville back into the hotseat…so sit back for a few minutes and read all about this new contender who’s ready to take underground hip-hop scene by the balls…
NLM: Hey how you doing? Thanks for agreeing to do an interview with NEW LEASE MUSIC
BB: I am doing great thanks for asking, and no problem it’s my pleasure
NLM: First off, I have to ask you: what’s the reason behind the name Becalli Bruh?
BB: Ummm… that’ s a good question! My reason behind the name was to pick a state that best suits my reckless high-spirited personality, and the first thing that came to mind was California or Calli, as I call it. The Be part of the name is just saying be in the moment and be who you are and don’t change for anyone, so I came up with Becalli and it sounded pretty legit so I went with it.
NLM: You released your super slick single ‘Leanin’ last November. What’s the public’s reception since its release?
BB: ‘Leanin’ got some great reception. There were a lot of people who enjoyed the free-spirited lyrics and the uptempo beat.
NLM: You have a pretty dope discography! What’s your favourite track and why?
BB: My favorite track would be ‘Haven’t Had Enough Of It’ because it really tells my story and how I am maturing over the years and how people and music have really brought it all together for me.
NLM: How would you describe your sound to potential fans?
BB: My sound is definitely unique and kinda has a raspy tone to it and I think can be really awesome with a lot of new and bright tunes
NLM: If you were to collaborate with just ONE chart-topping artist of today, who would it be and why?
No doubt, it would be G-Eazy. That man has inspired me to start doing my own stuff. I have been a fan of his since his early mixtape days. I have seen how he has really grown into the music he makes over the years, and how he really brings his fans together while doing something he loves. He is definitely someone who inspires me to be the best and most creative one out there.
NLM: So what other plans you have for 2017? Any upcoming gigs or album?
BB: I have a couple of new releases coming up around the summertime and will definitely be something different and new that I hope the fans enjoy.
NLM: How can potential fans reach you?
BB: Anyone that needs or wants to reach me can contact me by my instagram which is @becallibruh
NLM: If music didn’t exist, what would you do?
BB: Well damn I don’t even want to answer this question, but I would probably go with something that involves being creative and unique through a type of art
NLM: Finally, any shout outs?
BB: A shout out to Liveassmemphis, true friend of mine that has a song coming out on soundcloud february 10th, so go check that out!
