Mr. P Chill Drops Powerful Rap Album: L.I.F.E. - Living In Fragile Environments



Since the start of the pandemic, America has lost a half million people to COVID-19. Add to that quarantines, shutdowns, mask mandates, curfews and government issued vaccines. It's easy to conclude that we are living a fragile environment. Despite our new normal reality, artists like Mr. P Chill are still making big moves. He bobs and weave through this thing, putting out sounds and giving off vibes we need to cope. Mr. P Chill is an independent hip hop artist and producer from Sacramento, California. He just released a new project-- his 14th full length album entitled "L.I.F.E. - Living In Fragile Environments" and he's not holding back anything.

The album is rich with source material --lessons learned from his  life experiences and reflections on what 2020 taught us. At 46, he's an OG in the music game, with over two decades of experience as a recording and touring artist. And he shows no signs of slowing down. 

"You been in this circus for a long long time"



L.I.F.E. - Living In Fragile Environments" brings all the political turmoil, racial tension, and pandemic politics into the limelight in a rhythmic and melodic fashion. Mr. P. Chill's vibe is very much classic; his sound is like a friendlier Nas with a dash of LL Cool J.  Album standouts include This Circus, Social Distancing, and the hard hitting track Millions of Militants which has the pulse and feel of Public Enemy's Fight the Power

"F*ck Trump and anybody who loves him... We don't need a cheering section for racist republicans"

One of the dopest tracks on the project is Reflections. It's musically gold. The funky, soulful beat coupled with Chill's laid back yet crispy delivery make it a whole bop. And lyrically he reflects on his time in the game and why he's still at it -- spitting "hip hop.. she saved my life." The song is inspirational and gives off positive vibes. 

Beginning his career as a recording artist in Sacramento, CA in 1992 with the release of his former group’s first cassette single, Chill has not only embraced what it means to be an emcee, but has also shown a flair for entrepreneurism as he has chosen the path of independence with the start of his own label. Over the next ten years, he remained active with his former group, recording and performing as well as being involved in the production of various projects from other Sacramento artists. 

Around the start of the 21st century, Chill was less active with music as he was faced with a crossroad. In 2001, he disbanded his original group and decided to go solo. The first release was his self titled debut album in 2002. Also that year, Chill began touring the West Coast, performing shows in various bars and small music venues in support of this record.

By 2007, Chill was performing an average of 50-60 shows a year all over California, Nevada, Oregon and Washington, while maintaining a full time day job. In 2010, after burning the candle at both ends for a decade, Mr. P Chill went walked away from the 9 to 5 and devoted 100% of his energy to music and touring. In the ten years since, he has expanded his touring to cover the entire US at least once per year, alongside smaller regional tours throughout the year. Chill spends on average, ⅔ of every calendar year on the road, performing songs, selling merchandise and most importantly, connecting with fans.


In recent years, Mr. P Chill has had the pleasure of collaborating in the studio and sharing the stage with legendary emcees such as Spyder-D, 2Mex, Cee Knowledge (aka Doodlebug of Digable Planets), Percee P, The Great Peso (Fearless Four), Sach Illpages (The Nonce), Sage Francis, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Terminology, Masta Ace and Fatlip (The Pharcyde), just to name a few.  Most notably, his single with hip hop pioneer, Spyder-D, entitled “No Regrets” spent several months in rotation on college radio from coast to coast in late 2015. In October 2015 the song was featured by the legendary founder of Public Enemy, Chuck D, on his weekly radio show, “Songs That Mean Something”, on WBAI Radio in NYC and streamed worldwide on rapstation.com.  

In March 2017, Mr. P Chill and The Great Peso of the Fearless Four released a single called “R U Wit It” which enjoyed regular airplay on college radio and on rapstation.com.  On the weekly radio show, Hip Hop Gods Radio, the single charted for 13 weeks, peaking at #1 in July 2017.  Most recently his song "Social Distancing" that he collaborated with Cee Knowledge on charted at #1 on the same chart in August of 2020 after several months in rotation on rapstation.com, Hip Hop Gods Radio and various college and community radio stations across the United States.
