The rap industry is continuing to gain more momentum and attracting many young people with it. If you are among the generation Z, I will bet so much money that you know at least one person trying to make his career debut in the rap industry. Young producers haven’t been left behind, too; someone like Young Chop may still be in his late 20’s, but he sure has made his mark in the music industry.
When it comes to music production, it is easy to assume the more years someone has on the game, the better he is; well, Young Chop disapproves of that notion. He may be young, but he already boasts of producing some of the greatest hits and has worked with some highly acclaimed musicians and producers alike. This young man is part of the game-changer.
Who is Young Chop?
Tyree Lamar Pittman, aka Young Chop, is an American rapper, record producer, and songwriter. He was born on 14th November 1993 in Chicago, Illinois. He started making beats with his cousin at the early age of 11. Young Chop grew alongside his childhood friend Chief Keef and made his debut by producing some of Chief Keef’s singles.
Young Chop is part of the BandKamp Production team alongside the CEO and producer BandKamp. He has grown and started his own label by the name Chop Squad that already has some great hits. Additionally, he has a music production website called SoundKitWiz.com, engineers and producers can purchase music production-related products and audio engineering. Suffice to say, Young Chop is doing quite well for himself.
Seven rappers Young Chop produces for
Young Chop has produced some great hits for some of the established and upcoming rappers in the game. His tag as a producer is ‘Young Chop On the Beat,’ which is usually said by his little nephew.
Perhaps one of the most notable rappers Young Chop has had the pleasure of producing for is Chief Keef. While producing most of Chief Singles is what prompted his career to greater heights, we can say the same for Chief Keef as his songs have gone to enjoy massive airwaves.
Some of the renowned hits Young Chop has produced for Chief Keef include; I Don’t Like, Love Sosa, 3Hunna, Everyday, Hate Being Sober, and Earned It. Speaking on some of the songs he has produced for Chief Keef, Young Chop recognizes some of the songs as the best he has ever produced. He deems Everyday as epic and 3Hunna as the basis of his whole sound. He never liked the sound for the song I Don’t Like very much when he made it but grew to love it, seeing how well it was received.
Young Chop has produced some songs for French Montana before they fell out with one another. In 2012, he produced Devil Wants My Soul. Chop says he loved the beat from the beginning and knew that it would be a great hit.
Chop produced Guap for Big Sean in 2012; he has mentioned that he had to tweak the beat in three months to get it to where it became. The beat came out so fine and epic that he went on to do other songs like Mula, which also featured French Montana, Woke Up, amongst other hits.
Young Chop has produced the hit Super Cocky that has garnered many views on YouTube. He has, however, spoken up against the partnership between Chief Keef and Gucci Mane, saying he doesn’t understand how it would work as the two are very different.

Chop has produced some singles and collaborations for Lil Reese. He produced Us for Lil Reese, a beat he claims he made using a computer keyboard. He had to switch up the beat from being futuristic to a more hoodier and heavy beat.
Chop also produced Beef featuring Lil Reese, Lil Durk, and Fredo Santana.
Chop has also produced Right Here by Lil Durk. He met Lil Durk when he was still pretty Young and barely a teenager. He also produced the track Remember my name in 2015. Chop says Lil Durk is a workaholic, which made working with him easy as he is a workaholic too.
Young Chop credits one of his most significant production to be for the song Gang Bang by Fredo Santana. He has termed the beats for the song to be epic and even admits it is hard to come up with something like that again.
Young Chop is, without a doubt, one of the best producers in the Chicago Drill scene. He is attributed to being the Drill Legend of Chicago, with some fans noting that without him, some of these rappers wouldn’t have made it as they have. Much respect to him on that account.
