Young Chop is one of the pioneer producers in the Chicago Drill movement. Chop, born Tyree Pittman, honed his talents in production after a cousin introduced Fruity Loops to him at age 11.
“…Ever since then, I’ve been learning, not going outside and then I finally got it,” he said during an interview in Noisey’s “Chiraq” documentary.
Chop explained the origins of Drill Music, saying the genre was first called “dead music.”
“…Cause everything they talking about, they shooting guns,” Chop explained. “People dying everyday. It’s just real life, that’s how people related to it.”
“Before the drill music, it was drill,” he continued. “Everything was a drill.”
Chop is credited as the producer behind Chief Keef’s viral hit song “I Don’t Like.” This song ultimately landed Sosa a multimillion-dollar deal with Interscope.
Chop shed light on how he and Sosa came to become friends.
“He actually hit me up on Facebook one day,” Chop said. “Then I went over there to his grandma house. And then we did “3Hunna.” That’s when the fan base started coming and everything, like real big.”
