  1. I was there for when he live streamed his studio time to connect with the audience more,dope music,cool dude.

  2. Yeeaahhh. This dude is dope. In addition to his music, he’s started a movement and created a market in the industry that just hasn’t really been touched on yet. Most people don’t realize how ‘nerdy’ a lot of us hip-hoppers can be, but it’s beautiful. I’m excited to see his progress, along with Geek Street Society!

  3. Chayne is a very cool, down to earth dude who fits in perfectly with the scene in the ATX. I’ve had him on a few showcases now to rave reviews every time. His music has varying messages which can be grasped by people in all walks of life. He has a goal and is very driven towards it I have no doubt in my mind his cosplay and video game tournaments mixed with his outstanding music will be a big hit here. Looking forward to hearing the next album Chayne Reaction when it drops and doing many more live shows with him.

With working with him in the past he pushed me with a different challenge to find another voice of mine. Overall it has started a new wave of experiences for me to get somewhere in life with not only the business side but my personal life. I can cant thank him enough for giving me that new foundation that I can build upon. I now can talk to people with a far better skill set after watching and seeing him in action.

  50. I really like Chayne’s music, it’s fun and energetic. We socially aware but into odd things geeks need our own theme songs

  51. Even as someone who normally does not get into Hip Hop, I really tend to enjoy Chayne’s music. While most rappers may talk about keeping it real, he keeps it real both to himself and to his fans, never shying away from wearing his fandom on his sleeves. He wouldn’t wear the mask otherwise. If you haven’t heard him yet, check out his stuff…it’s quite solid!

  52. Great interview. Very informative and detailed. It takes a great journalist to present the story of an artist to the public, correctly. Job well done..

  53. Keep it up bro. There is no limit. And always stay true to yourself. I kno you will by jus seein who you are. Keep your element too when you get famous……..it’s in the near future.

  55. Not only is his music dope…his work ethic and communication with his followers has always well as long as I have been following him been on point.

  56. Sammy Chayne interview me and my cast mates and crew for a movie we did in Denver. He’s a class act and a good soul and I wish the best for that dude! Keep killing it Sammy!

  57. Sammy is representing a true independent unique style that everyone can listen to and be motivated by regardless of background which coincides with his effort and determination to show the world what music can be as to what we perceive it as, and the interview is what he is all about and what he represents, I thought it was a great interview

  58. I have seen build from the ground up plenty of times. He knows how to keep it real with the rest of society i like how he has given everyone a chance to express what means most to them. Chayne is more than a music artist he is out to discover a journey and i know his heart is set right towards the right goal! Way to Sammy! Yes Yes Yes!
