CHOPS Strength In NUMBERS music project Kickstarter video
Hit producer Chops is working with the best-established & aspiring Asian American & International music artists on a compilation record called Strength in Numbers.
Chops has worked with some of the world’s biggest & best rappers which include “The Creep” by The Lonely Island & Nicki Minaj (which has 78+ million views!), “Damn I’m Cold” by Bun B & Lil Wayne, and “National Anthem” by Young Jeezy. One of Kanye West’s first rap appearances was my Virtuosity album, with greats like Talib Kweli and Raekwon from Wu-Tang Clan. For the last 2 years Chops has been making music with over 30 of the best Asian American artists out, with special guests from Japan and Korea.
“I noticed amazing Asian American artists making waves, and rekindled an old dream: a project with ALL strong Asian talent! Artists today who go through many of the things my group did, overcoming the same obstacles, same struggles, pushing forward, and going beyond.” -CHOPS

This is a grassroots project, engineered entirely with ZERO funding. The kickstarter will cover the costs in production of the music and creating the actual albums for distribution.
By doing this Kick starter, the money will recoup basic travel & equipment costs, creating, refining and all the daily cost of working. It costs a lot mastering, promoting and video production, of course. The money will be used to cover all these expenses. Chops thinks the challenge would be actually getting the outcome, and he said it will worth the wait. And another big challenge is spreading the word. So, (if you can’t support money-wise…) please help by sharing and feel free to share this to your friends. ;p
We got 8 more days to go to support Chops and the Asian American artists!!
