Cheefkit Is A Budding Rapper From The Bay Area

When most people think of the Bay Area, they think of Silicon Valley. However, there is so much more to the Bay Area than just software, hardware chips, and software engineers. As a matter of fact, the Bay Area is influential in leading the wave of hip hop music. Before rap, deejaying and graffiti were mainstream, a group of dedicated trendsetters and musicians made hip-hop the cultural force that took California by storm in the 1980s. Once upon a time, hip hop culture was associated with violence, drugs, and gang culture. Now it is shifting where hip hop is used to address social issues that are present in modern society. 

For Cheefkit, he sees music as his way of giving back to the community that helped him achieve so much in his life. He explains that “these radical movements have evolved and now focus on giving back to the community to better the youth.” He loves being from the Bay Area because it is a mixture of deejaying, hip-hop entrepreneurship, dance, and fashion. To Cheefkit, he sees hip hop as a vehicle that brings people together. Hip-hop will always have a social and political agenda, and it makes people more powerful. 

Cheefkit uses his platform to give back to the youth by explaining how young Americans conceptualize and talk about race. His intent is to highlight the different ways young Americans today are able to make choices regarding how and to what extent they choose to identify and align themselves with particular racial and/or ethnic groups. He believes it is important for today’s youth to identify and align themselves with particular racial and/or ethnic groups that matter to them. Overall, Cheefkit is excited about his music’s future and feels optimistic about his budding career. To learn more about Cheefkit, visit his instagram.
