Tyree Pittman, better known by his artist name Young Chop, is a 19 year-old hip-hop producer with a net worth of $1.5 million. He is best recognized as the producer behind Chief Keef’s hits “3Hunna” “Love Sosa” and “I Don’t Like.”
Raised in Chicago, Chop first started making beats when he was 11 years old. In high school, Chop befriended Keith Cozart, who would go on to become rapper Chief Keef. The pair began to release mixtapes together in 2010. Their first collaboration was on the mixtape “Bang,” which led to a single by the same name. The pair later hit it big in 2012 with the singles “3Hunna” and “I Don’t Like.”
These successes came after Keef faced jail time for weapons charges. According to Chop, Keef’s first big single, “3Hunna,” was recorded the same day that Keef got out of jail. “I made the beat and made the song the same day,” said Chop. “I went to his crib and we made the whole song right there.” Keef was under house arrest at his grandmother’s house at the time. “I didn’t even have the beat in my head,” said Chop, “I just made it in the moment.” According to Chop the initial production of the song took only 15 to 20 minutes.
“I Don’t Like” Remix
Chief Keef and Young Chop’s third single, “I Don’t Like,” was a major hit in the Chicago area. The song soon caught the attention of Kanye West, who liked the track enough to produce a remix of it. The original song featured a verse by fellow Chicago rapper Lil Reese, while the remix featured contributions from Big Sean, Pusha T, and Jadakiss, as well as West himself.
Other Production Credits
In addition to his work with Keef, Chop has also produced songs for other hip-hop artists like Big Sean, Lil Reese, Lil Durk, Ace Hood, Pusha T, Birdman, Soulja Boy, Gucci Mane, and French Montana.
Latest Venture: “Precious”
Chop has been working on an album called “Precious,” which is set for release on August 23, 2013. The project was originally planned as a mixtape, but Chop announced on Twitter on July 27 that the project would be released as an album instead.
