Chaptabois are a forward thinking duo of two brothers, Snypa and Shankanites, who are known for their dynamic skills and hard hitting sound in the underground hip hop scene of Houston, Texas. With their depth of production and strong lyrical ability, Chaptabois also pride themselves on providing a positive viewpoint in contrast to a lot of the hip hop spewed forth by artists today.
New single Kash may seem like another does of classic hip hop on the surface, but it’s a closer look at why there’s such a capitalist obsession for money, while for so many it’s simply the only answer to overcoming life or death scenarios such as living in poverty. Money brings a certain level of independence and can open up a world of opportunity for those fortunate to have enough of it. As a result it’s the driving factor that’s forced upon us to work hard to attain the material things we may want in life.
You may not know it but it’s likely you’ve heard something from the Chaptabois cannon as their music has featured in TV series such as Power, Training Day and Lethal Weapon while landing placements across HBO, MTV, VH1, BET, E, Starz, Oxygen, Fuel, ESPN, NFL Network, MLB, TV-ONE, as well spots across Channel 7 in Australia and prime time TV in Canada.
While currently spreading the word for their brand new EP ‘Momma We Made It’ Snypa says of the duo’s mission statement “Chaptabois use their talent and platform to be a voice for the underdogs. For the ones who have a will to succeed, but may not have the proper guidance and resources to make it happen. We try to bring a sense of champion to our listeners. To say strive to become the best you can be and never be afraid to be you.”
