“Florida’s most talented prospect…” – HYPETRAK

“[Woop is] a fluid and stylistically interesting rapper, one as likely to confront his own paranoia on his songs as he is to trumpet his successes” – Stereogum

“Woop’s nimble verses weave between [Zaytoven and Sonny Digital’s] plodding beats in a way that few other rappers ever attempt.” – Pitchfork

“Woop’s delivery is somewhat reminiscent of Young Scooter, and his recent Woop Nation tape is impressive for a relative newcomer” – The FADER

It’s been said before that “it takes a village to raise a child” and to say that Chuck “Woop” Ford’s West Orlando neighborhood has influenced both his music and outlook in life would be a tremendous understatement. “My neighborhood, well our part of the neighborhood, it’s like its own world,” Woop explains. “It’s 700 block, Malibu & Ivey Lane. We got our own ways. That’s why it’s 700 Ways.” Referring to the popular hand gesture now being widely thrown up around Florida (a combination of the surfer “hang ten” on hand and holding up five fingers on the other hand), what started as an ode to Woop’s 700 block has now become a visual counterpart to his initial soundtrack to the streets, Woop Nation and the successful follow-up, Woop Lingo.
