This is a PSA to my fellow hip-hop heads: there is a wild 20-year-old Philly (f)emcee out on the loose, and making big moves. Chynna Rogers dropped a solid debut mixtape, Chinois, about a year ago which included the lead single “Selfie,” wherein she effortlessly rhymes over a Busta Rhymes sample. When I first heard of her and saw the “Selfie” video I knew she had that “je ne sais quoi” every star longs for—emphasis on “star,” because being talented does not necessarily make you a star. Chynna, however, has this natural flair for rhyming and flow, and unlike many other female artists that resort to gratuitous objectification, she, instead, refreshingly relies on her wits to take her far. Clearly, she can get down with the boys, as she’s joined A$AP Ant and DJ Nick’s Marino Gang label fam.
Today, she dropped “MadeInChynna,” where we’ve got her spittin' steady over a trippy bass-heavy beat, produced by none other than LuckyMe champion, Hudson Mohwake. My favorite part is when she delivers, “You ain't gotta question shit, I meant to offend you / Never gave a fuck, ain't gonna pretend to”

Did I also mention she’s a (legit, not Instagram) model? Don’t let that pretty face fool you, though, her mouth is tastefully vicious. I don’t know how to talk up this bad ass any more, just let her music convince you.
