CHILLAH ROSE: BREAKTHROUGH ARTIST & PRODUCER
This is Chillah Rose.
Chillah, you are a very respected artist. Could you tell us more about how your passion for music started?
I was eleven years old when I recorded my first song!
A couple of my older cousins started a muzik label and made me a part of it.
That lasted for as long as it could.
Eventually, that situation dissolved right around the time I turned 16, due to some unfortunate and unforeseen circumstances.
Around that same time my passion for writing and recording muzik had taken on its own form.
I considered myself a real “rapper” then.
I developed a different love for the muzik and it’s art as a whole.
I’d learn how to really express myself through my lyrics, it became therapeutic for me.
By the time I turned 19 years of age, I hit the ground running doing my own thing which is when I really knew that I wanted to do this as a career and be a part of it for the rest of my life.
You write about overcoming obstacles during difficult times, what would you say to aspiring artists who look up to you?
I would start by telling them to dream and to never stop no matter what.
Even when things get hard and seem impossible!
Never allow yourself to get discouraged and if there ever is a time that you are down, never let that last too long.
Pick yourself back up and keep fighting the good fight.
Exercise your mental strength.
Nothing is over until it’s over!
The different obstacles and adversities we face throughout our lifetime is what makes us who we are.
This is what builds and shapes our character.
I'm grateful for the things I've experienced in life; the highs to the lows.
The build ups and the let downs really taught me how to live life on life’s terms.
No dream is too big!
