King Jerm sat down with Justus League member Joe Scudda last week, now another Justus League member goes one on one with King Jerm. Meet Chaundon, one of the illest cats you probably never heard. But just because he isn’t a household name..yet, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get to know him now.
King Jerm: What’s up? Do you mind telling the readers where are you from Chaundon?
Chaundon: I am from the South Bronx. Hunts Point Avenue to be exact!
That’s the place off an HBO documentary I’ve seen. How long have you been rapping? I’ve been rapping for 16 years. Wow. That’s a long time.
16 years? That is a good minute. Of all the cities that you have performed in, which city did you enjoy rocking the most? That’s a tough question. So many cities show a lot of love. I cant choose just one! How about I’ll choose 6? 1. NYC, 2. Chicago, 3. Boulder, 4. Orlando, 5. Baltimore, & 6. D.C.
That is a good list of cities right there. What do you have cooking in the lab at this moment? I am about to complete my 2nd album No Excuses. I can’t wait to put it out! There is a lot of heat on there and the kid that got the majority of the production is 16 years old! Watch out suckas!
Can’t wait to hear the new album when it comes out. Which artists are on your “wish list” to work with? The wish list is extensive. Joell Ortiz, Dr. Dre, Outkast, Nas, Black Thought, just to name a few.
I see that you and Scudda are real close, how did all of the Justus League meet? We all met in North Carolina. Phonte, Big Pooh, Big Dho, 9th Wonder, and I all attended North Carolina Central University. I met Scudda through 9th in Raleigh. We were all liked minded individuals that clicked immediately.
Who are some of your early influences? My early influences are Big Daddy Kane, Slick Rick, Doug E. Fresh, Rakim, B.I.G, Big L, Lord Finesse, Big Pun, Nas, Jay-Z……The list is crazy but I think you get the picture.
All of those rappers are first ballot Hall of Famers! I have a quick question for you: You are about to hit the road, what ONE album are you grabbing? My 1st album Carnage! It has everything I need to get inspired. Dope beats, and dope rhymes. What more do I need?
Good one. Can you tell everyone something about Chaundon that we do not know? I slapped box with Jesus and licked shots with Joseph. Nah, something about me that yall don’t know… I write rock & pop songs. I also write for other artists. firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need a ghost writer hit me up.
There you have it…the man is a ghostwriter..get at him! What was your first car? My 1st car was a 1992 Chevrolet Caprice. Damn I miss that car.
Here is an off the wall question: What are your all time favorite shoes? My favorite shoes of all time are shoes that aren’t over $75! So Air Force Ones are my favorite.
If Justus League could redo any posse cut, which one would it be? Possibly Scenario
That would be dope. I wish you guys would try to work on that. Which sport you like better…boxing or MMA? Boxing hands down. Legends come from boxing. I don’t know anybody in MMA. Just ain’t my thing.
We might have to get you to check out some UFC fights, I’m telling you, you will like it. Tell people why they should check for Chaundon. People should check for me because I just may be the only artist who tells the truth on record. I don’t follow trends. I am the last of the original emcees since most of these dudes follow suite and want to be like everyone else except themselves. Another reason why people should check for me is because I know how to pick beats and make songs! Plus I’m nice as hell and my shows are crazy!
What is your favorite Hip-Hop review site? Honestly, I don’t be on the internet like that. I’m mainly on twitter now. Just being real!
