A.Chal Is Keeping Latin Roots Alive In Hip-Hop

Peruvian rapper turned singer, A.Chal, is giving Latinos an opportunity to shine within the R&B/Hip-Hop world. After premiering his single ‘Love N Hennessy’ on Apple’s Beats 1 Radio, A.Chal has been releasing singles nonstop, dropping his mixtape, On Gaz, and even having his own headlining tour.

On Gaz is filled with songs that give off an addictive and daunting presence, and is definitely one of the projects that should not go unnoticed this year. A.Chal’s versatility is demonstrated throughout his entire album. He switches up his flow from rapping to singing and even alternates between English and Spanish on certain tracks. A standout song on this mixtape is ‘Cuanto’ featuring ASAP Nast, that showcases A.Chal rapping in Spanish over a spooky and daunting production.

From start to finish, each song flows into the other and it is one of the reasons why On Gaz became a project that caught my ears this year.
