Not many 16 year olds have the dynamically crafty mic skills that South Carolina’s SupaChase does. In fact even most experienced rappers can barely touch his ability, and that’s what makes him such a standout. His youthful energy and swagger is a rarity among today’s younger artists and will undoubtedly leave an impactful mark on the rap game. And when it comes to SupaChase‘s newest EP ‘Better Late Than Never’, the rising artist proves that he has what it takes to climb to the top and hit the ground running.
Beginning his journey into the world of music at age ten, SupaChase has been solidifying his signature sound for the past six years and has encompassed a very versatile and innovative style that is effective and cleverly executed. An artist that writes and records all of his own music himself, ‘Better Late Than Never’ is comprised of eight solid tracks that have a vast array of multifaceted elements and tasty flavors. His track “Go (feat. Marissa)” is a hypnotically visceral listening experience that really showcases SupaChase‘s mic skills, lyric ability and innovative uniqueness. The song has plenty of swagger as well as a beat that possesses the ability to move the goal posts entirely in today’s rap game. Marissa’s melody in the song’s chorus is insatiably effective and redefines the serious catchiness standard. If there’s one track that is bound to reel you in from the jump, it’s definitely this one. The track “Sunset” is another ambient and atmospheric effort that has a crafty hook that sets the tone for the rest of the track’s duration. SupaChase also showcases his ability to sing hooks in this song which undoubtedly parallels his dynamic rhyming skills and wordsmithy tactics. The R&B-oriented beat in this song is very anthemic and really solidifies his versatility throughout this record.
Anchor single “Strange” is an absolute banger with a chill, swagger 90s beat and will easily draw in old school Hip Hop fans of many crucial eras. And “No ID (feat. Billy Winfield)” shares a similar stylization with a more upbeat tempo that really enhances the musical landscape that SupaChase consistently brings to the forefront. These two tracks are a standout of their own kind and really explores several angles of his artistic merit. They are high quality bangers with production and performance value that parallels each other diligently and effectively. Overall, this EP touches on equal parts originality and familiarity, giving each listener a taste of something fresh yet still identifiable. It’s absolutely mind blowing that a record of this quality is written and produced by a teenager. It’s definitely one for the books for SupaChase and can definitely be looked at as his current magnum opus. Artists of a similar calibre normally don’t come anywhere near the skill sets that he possesses, and this EP is direct evidence of that. ‘Better Late Than Never’ is a must-hear on all counts and is currently available on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes and several other digital music streaming platforms. You’ll be an instant fan upon first listen, and you’ll be thanking us later.
