MP3: Chevy Woods (ft. DeJ Loaf) – “All Said And Done”
The Pittsburgh Native Links Up with the Detroit Hooksmith to Deliver Gritty Track from Forthcoming EP
While preparing his upcoming 48Hunnid EP, Chevy Woods liberates his DeJ Loaf-featured single, “All Said And Done.” In each verse, Woods exhibits stories about loyalty, trust, and authenticity. “The song is my life in 3 minutes — they’re stories I’ve been waiting to tell and now I’ve got a platform to speak from,” Woods tells Billboard. With hook responsibilities, Loaf, known for her R&B and street edgy vocals, gives each chorus grittiness as well as empathetic appeal. “Her voice brought it full circle. It wasn’t necessary about the words she says, it’s more about the feeling in her voice,” Woods explains. With production from Ricky P, the song’s message is taken to new heights with its trunk-rattling instrumental, which hits its authoritative peak in the middle of Loaf’s chorus.
“All Said And Done” is from Chevy Woods’ forthcoming 48Hunnid EP, which serves as the Taylor Gang representative’s first commercial product. Available on August 7th, the EP additionally features Post Malone, OG Maco and Rico Love. The track follows Woods’ video-single, “Now That I’m Up.” Filmed just south of his hometown 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. In addition to the video, 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. Woods also released his DJ Holiday-hosted Gangland 3 mixtape in January, which includes features from Taylor Gang cohorts Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, and Ty Dolla $ign, in addition to production from Zaytoven and Sonny Digital. Chevy Woods is currently performing as a special guest on Wiz Khalifa, Hoodie Allen, and Fall Out Boys‘ Boyz of the Summer Tour, which you can view dates for here.

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.”
