The EP:

Kicking off SXSW by celebrating his appreciation for the Lone Star State, Taylor Gang rapper Chevy Woods surprised fans with the release of his five-song SXSW I Love Texas EP. Produced entirely by Ricky P, SXSW I Love Texas is a smooth offering from the Pittsburgh rapper. Sharing experiences and showing love for all things Texas, Chevy Woods raps about a friend being imprisoned in Fort Worth, his adoration of bad girls from San Antonio, stories of mobbing with his crew through the southern state. “This EP is what I would wanna hear in my ride if I lived here,” Chevy Woods states as he preps to perform at several SXSW showcases. “Salute to all the pioneers from Texas!”

Chevy Woods’ SXSW I Love Texas EP follows his DJ Holiday-hosted Gangland 3 mixtape, which released in January and included features from Taylor Gang cohorts Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, and Ty Dolla $ign, in addition to production from Zaytoven and Sonny Digital. Earlier this month, Woods shared the video for “Gold Chainz Gold Daytons,” which was the latest in a series of video releases from the Gangland 3 mixtape, which also includes WorldStarHipHop-debuted visuals for “Shooters” and “In the Kitchen.”

Chevy Woods has been building up momentum with his mixtapes Red Cup Music, The Cook Out, and the Gangland series, progressing his sound with each release. After years of writing and recording in his home studio, Chevy traded in his keyboard for cash to pay for studio time. In 2004, while recording at Pittsburgh’s I.D. Labs Studios, Chevy encountered Wiz Khalifa and the two instantly formed a bond. “Me and Wiz, we always had each other’s backs. Since we were both recording at I.D. Labs at the same time, we would hold each other down,” Chevy has explained. “Even if it was just picking up Wendy’s for the other one on our way to the studio.”
