Review & Interview: Chvck Thvrgood

Chvck Thvrgood has released the first track from his upcoming project Dinner Is Served. The track is a mesmerizing look into Chvck’s passion for rap. With a Madlib-sounding beat and smooth flows, Chvck creates a soundscape that any fan of underground/alternative hip-hop is sure to enjoy.

See what he had to say below:

Q:
Dinner Served is inspired by MF DOOM. How did his passing affect you? I know it was hard for a lot of heads.

A:
Yooo DOOM’s passing was so random. I didn’t think it was real at first but the way the news broke was so DOOM. Like how we didn’t find out until the last day of the year that he passed on Halloween, the day people wear masks. It was crazy man nobody knew he had been passed.

Q:
You decided to get back to the roots of your love for rap, which is lyricism. Who were some of your biggest influences in this realm?

A:
Definitely! I’d have to say Weezy F, Curren$y, DOOM of course, J Cole and lately I’ve been listening to a lot of Mach Hommy.

Q:
What was it like making this project following your previous music? Was it more or less challenging, or just different in some ways?

A:
It was different than the stuff i had been making lately but it’s what I always knew, so it wasn’t challenging at all. I never stopped making this type of music I just kept a lot of the records in the cut for the right time. I had fun just being able to rap with no hooks like me and the homies do in cyphers.

Q:
How did you go about finding beats for it?

A:
Well since I’m not able to work with Alchemist and Madlib at the moment, I decided to get as close to that sound as I could. Hopefully the project reaches the ears of those two and we get to work; they’re definitely on my dream producers list.

Q:
What’s your writing process like? With Chef’s Special, did you know where you wanted to take it right when you heard the beat, or did it need some time to stew?

A:
Soon as i heard the beat i just started writing and it flowed all the way thru when creativity hits like that I like to finish what i start, so I did it in one sitting as far as the writing and recording. I usually do it like that but I don’t mind coming back to a song later if I hit a wall.

Q:
To those who are new to you, how would you describe the sound of Dinner Served? Is the title inspired by Mm… Food?

A:
Its a raw nostalgic type sound. I wanted it to sound dusty and not as polished as my other music because sometimes I feel like too much mixing takes away from the original feel of a record. It’s crazy I didn’t really realize the similarities in the title to DOOM’S project until later.
