HCM. How did you come by your stage name?
DJ Chip305. Since I was a little kid, everyone called me by my last name… “Chipy”. I think my first name is just too difficult for most people to pronounce, so they gravitate towards “Chipy”. I was born and raised in Miami. I’m extremely proud of where I come from. So I represent the 305 wherever I go. My stage name isn’t just a “stage name”… It’s who I am.
HCM. To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
DJ Chipy305. If you’ve been to any of my parties or heard any of my sets, you could clearly tell I’m from Dade County.. I’ll have everyone & their grandma Jookin by the end of the night. As far as my sense of style… I just do me… But I have every artist in my music library to thank and pay homage to. Because they are literally the ones that create my sense of style.
HCM. On your current/upcoming album… How did you come up with the concept for this project?
DJ Chipy305. My newest project is a collaboration project that I produced. It’s called CHANGES. It features 15 of the dopest artists from the crib.
The concept of the project is change… I’m at a point in my life where everything is changing & I wanted that to reflect on this project… From the cover art to the style of music you hear. EVERYTHING changes from the first track to the last.
HCM. What are some of your greatest challenges as an artist, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
DJ Chipy305. I think my biggest challenge is satisfying myself. No matter how good something maybe. I’m never satisfied with the outcome. I always think it can be better. Which is also a pro. Because it makes me go 10x harder to make sure things get done correctly.
HCM. Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout-outs?
DJ Chipy305. Because CHANGES just dropped this month, I want to shout out and thank every artist on the project. 15 different styles coming together to make the most fire music you ever heard!!! Much love & respect to each of you.
