Pretty Picture

Featured artist: Chianti – Pretty Picture

As part of our ongoing “Rap’s New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Chianti from Marshall to talk about his recent music, his upcoming projects, his career advice and his overall experiences being in the music industry and he did not disappoint…

Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Chianti! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?

Chianti: I have always loved music and growing up in the ghetto I got to see a lot of things kids my age shouldn't see but it made me the man that I am today and I want to use my music to tell my story.

Come up with a business plan and make sure you research and try to learn as much about the music business as possible before you jump into this industry.


What about concerts? Do you play live?

I do concerts and I have opened up for a few major artist. I am currently planning a live concert for my next single I am dropping in a few weeks.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

Where on the Grind it's Our Time to Shine


What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

My new single is called Pretty Picture you can check it out on You Tube and it available now on all major streaming platforms.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

I would sign the rite record contract. I just feel like the game has changed so much that you really don't need a major label if you have a business plan and a budget and the rite team.

Any last words?

I would like to shout out my city Marshall, Tx and all my fans and friends and family who are supporting this journey. I want to thank my team HI-WAY MONEY MUSIC and my promotions and marketing team @StreetKingz Promotions/MeGang.
