Chinno Cartel is a music artist who grew up in Virginia but currently lives in New York. I had a chance to interview him in NYC.

His love for music derived from classical hip hop artist. He grew up listening to the likes of slick Rick, Dougie fresh, Biz Markie and more. 

Although, Chinno Cartel started out playing basketball, after the occurrence of a medical incident his music path became apparent. 

Chinno Cartel creates conscious and calm timeless music. He strives to leave a lasting impression on fans similar to Nipsey Hussle’s accomplishments. 

Chinno released his EP, The Land of Chinno and shot a music video for his fans in Connecticut. There are 11 tracks on the project and His favorite songs on the EP are “Jetbluee” and “Proceed.” He really explains his struggles and strength in the single, “Proceed.”

If he could choose an artist to work with he would work with Eminem and during our interview he breaks down his favorite Eminem projects and lyrics.
