Washington, D.C. has always produced one-of-a-kind rap music, influenced by their somewhat off the beaten path location and strong cultural ties to the past.... Chaz French Refuses to Lose on New Song “Can’t Stop Us”

Washington, D.C. has always produced one-of-a-kind rap music, influenced by their somewhat off the beaten path location and strong cultural ties to the past. Chaz French spent his formative years in Northeast D.C., growing into a lyrically deft rapper who is also skilled at putting songs together. His latest work is “Can’t Stop Us,” a song featured in a trailer for the animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse.

The track is meant to motivate, with Chaz rapping about winning against all odds.
“But you can’t put a price on peace of mind/Said we on the move, we gotta stay in line,” the hook starts off. He later raises his voice to deliver the last two lines of it: “We on the top, who gon’ stop us now?/I said we comin’ for the top, who gon’ stop us now?”

Success brings new issues and Chaz isn’t blind to that fact. “I said I’m back like i never left/More problems come with bigger checks,” is both self-affirming and a not so humble brag. After that, Chaz is just flexing: “She don’t speak no hable ingles/So if she wanna see, I just tell her, ‘Yes.'”

Chaz was a featured artist on Baltimore rapper Tate Kobang’s late 2017 project. Tate Ko. He also dropped a project of his own last November, Kill Vol. 1: A DMV Original, where he collaborated with other artists from the area, with a video for his Shy Glizzy-assisted song “Hol’ Up” releasing just before.
