Video: Chevy Woods – “Now That I’m Up” (Prod. by Sledgren & RMB Justize)
Following His Gangland 3 Mixtape and Surprise SXSW I Love Texas EP, the Taylor Gang Rapper Continues His Busy Year With A Boastful Visual
Co-produced by fellow Taylor Gang representers Sledgren and RMB Justize, the trunk-rattling trap beat for “Now That I’m Up” complements Chevy Woods‘ boastful auto-tuned raps. Filmed just south of Pittsburgh, blue and red coloring detach Woods from the grayscale backgrounds of a construction yard and vintage car garage, which bares a TGOD graffiti tag. Having been bubbling as a mixtape king in the streets of Pittsburgh several years prior to joining Wiz Khalifa on the Waken Baken tour in 2010, Chevy Woods’ legacy is well-renowned in his hometown as he’s continued to make waves abroad with the Taylor Gang.
Chevy Woods previously surprised fans with the release of his five-song SXSW I Love Texas EP. Produced entirely by Ricky P, SXSW I Love Texas has the Pittsburgh rapper 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 stated as he prepared to perform at several SXSW showcases. “Salute to all the pioneers from Texas!” Chevy Woods’ SXSW I Love Texas EP followed 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.

Chevy Woods Background:
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.”
