Chancellor dominates with a healthy mix of bravado and biting realism. Introspective commentary, melodic delivery and a scrappy “out-the-mud” mentality speak to the time he spent cutting his teeth on the streets of his hometown where the perennially salty ethos is a perfect breeding ground for battle tested microphone fiends. Appealing to the streets while improving upon the prevailing aesthetic perfected by the stars of the south and the 6ix, "No Man’s Island" offers solid proof that Miles Chancellor may have what it takes to become a giant among men. On his second project, "West End Chza", throughout 15 tracks, Chancellor tenaciously approaches each song in celebration of the odds he's defeated.
