We had the good fortune of connecting with CHAPO and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi CHAPO, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
I think risks are all about how much you believe in yourself. I always feel I can turn any situation into a good situation even if it’s already a good situation I can make it a better one.

Risk taking has always been a huge role in my life and my career. I’m taking a risk now by showing the world that I believe in myself so much that my career is what comes first. It’s hard to focus on a lot other things as hanging out with friends occasionally or working a job and also striving for your career to take off. Your attention has to be solely on your career, risk taking is vital for me.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I believe what sets me apart from others, is my passion. I don’t really come across other artists that loves it for the craft anymore. They do it just to be cool or to post for Instagram or something. I also make it easier to work with because I can write on the song and then I can produce it and lastly record the whole song mixed and mastered.

I’m most proud of how I taught myself how to self produce my own music. That’s one of the best feelings and I get excited every time I learn something new.

I got to where I’m at today by working hard simple and plain like that. I still have so much more to go and I feel like I haven’t went anywhere yet. No it definitely wasn’t easy it’s still hard but the road only gets clearer if you keep going right?

I’ve learned that you have to believe in yourself through it all especially when you’re feeling like giving up. One song can change everything!

I want the world to know that I’m a very ambitious, competitive person and I only want to be great nothing less. My brand represents everything about me and what I stand for.

CHAPO brand is for everyone that believes in themselves and want to strive for greatness and not settle for less in life.

My story is like everyone else’s, just about my life and me being able to add onto it and to paint the perfect picture from my mind to your ears.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I like to go to the Las Vegas strip, we have all the big hotel and casinos there. We can go anywhere to get a drink and eat everyday. I like to go out to Drais Nightclub to go out at night and enjoy myself.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I want to give a shoutout to all my close people for always believing in me and pushing me to keep going. Morgan Bazil & Flamingyon for being hands on and up close and personal with me behind the lens, y’all help me bring my vision to life!
