With mesmerizing west coast style beats, Choosey aspires for a low rider to speed past a gazillion California palm trees in as he raps about his wishes on “Low Low.” The song uses hopeful rhymes, an Aloe Blacc chorus, and a mariachi-infused instrumental by Exile finds him pondering how fly life would be if he had a low rider in his possession. It’s almost as if he’s trying to say “Life is but a dream,” with a couple of verses.
The Southern California native is signed to Dirty Science Records, and focuses on making music that plays homage to his Afro-Chicano heritage. Additionally, he raps about the politics that come with his ethnic identity paired with the societal ills that make his existence harder, like gentrification.
“My biggest influences have been people who spoke from the heart, and what’s most honest about me is my heritage,” Choosey stated on a press release. “There’s a stigma that Black and Mexican cultures don’t get along, but I wanted to show the beauty in being a product of both.”
His forthcoming album Black Beans is slated to drop in March and will have production from west coast heavyweight Exile. “Oldies are a big part of Chicano culture on the west coast from the ‘50s to now. Choosey is born out of that. So with this album, we wanted to unify that sound with Hip-Hop,” Exile said.

Ultimately, Choosey wants his sonic authenticity to catapult him into success with the admission of still staying true to his message. “I want to be amongst the greats and connect directly with people as a voice who spoke from the heart,” he said.
