Chaz French "What Ya Say" feat. Saba

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

We’ve seen a lot of growth from DMV emcee Chaz French since our introduction to him over a year ago with his Goldlink collab “LMGLML.” “100” was my shit on some aggressive rapper shit. Today, he slows things down and gets reflective with “What Ya Say” featuring Saba. Look for Chaz to come through with a new project at the end of the month, and check below for a full breakdown of “What Ya Say” from Chaz himself.

This song is a moment of clarity and resolution from things I talked about in my first project, Happy Belated. On that project I focused on my struggles, where now moving forward I want to concentrate more on getting the mind in tuned with the heart to progress for the kids in my city (DC). 'What Ya Say' is inferring that I'm trying to hear what my heart is saying a little better, which you may not have known at first listen. A lot of times people sell out for what other people think they should do rather than listen to their heart, but this soul of mine ain't for sale. On Happy Belated we walked through my struggles together, and now I want to walk with others through theirs.
