New Young Money Artist Chanel West Coast Talks Mixtape & Tupac

If you thought Young Money may not have any sense of humor then you’re wrong. Young Money’s newest signee is rapper and television personality Chanel West Coast. You might recognize Chanel from the MTV show Ridiculousness where her rememberable laugh accompanies host Rob Dyrdek while they commentate and die of laughter while watching crazy home videos of people doing bizarre things.

Chanel was signed to Young Money in May, and released her mixtape Now You Know in July. While Chanel geared up for her listening party of her mixtape, she sat down with VIBE to talk about her music inspirations, how she feels about being part of Young Money, and her new mixtape.

“My biggest influence is Tupac,” says Chanel. “He was a poet, and listening to Tupac is what inspired me to start rapping.”
