An ethereal and percolating piano melody joins Chop Z as he begins the refrain to the next single off his “Freeformed” EP. Dubbed “Wheel of Fortune”, this new single finds itself in the sonic territory of Hip Hop though it also features touches of Trap, UK Grime and Dancehall as well. Real name, Teiyan McGann, it’s not hard to hear that MC Chop Z has spent some time in Jamaica. Growing up, a young Chop Z loved to trade verses with his family on the island and as an artist this young creator is able to synthesize various influences into a cohesive and accessible sound. Held down with a rugged low end and syncopated drum line, “Wheel of Fortune” is a swaggering reminder that life is precious. You could end up living the life of luxury or you could lose it all in an instant. The choices you make, the things you do, can have a profound impact on your life and the world around you. The only way to win this game of life is to spin the “Wheel of Fortune” and put yourself into every new day and opportunity that comes your way!
