Quick Thoughts: Boston’s Chase Murphy takes his a unique approach to hip-hop. I last wrote about him when he dropped his track “Corporate,” and when I recently revisited his music, I was pleasantly surprised to find him exploring with new sounds and styles. His music never fit in a box – I could tell he took inspiration from various genres – but his latest release “Scrumptious” has more pop and electronic influence than I would have expected, all for the better.
Murphy glides across the production on “Scrumptious,” which consists of synths and an upbeat drum pattern, showing off his penchant for storytelling and hitting great melodies. He’s an exciting artist to watch as he ascends in the Boston rap scene and as he continues to create more genre-bending records. Be on the lookout for the rising talent Chase Murphy as we move into 2022.
