Recently, I had the pleasure to get to know rising Atlanta, Georgia artist, Chosen Fate. We’re starting to see a new wave of lyrically conscious rappers, and Chosen Fate is here to make hip-hop music his stomping ground and prove that he’s not just going to be a one hit wonder, but an artist who can hopefully inspire others to be themselves in this generation of pretentious posers.
Who is Chosen Fate…? Though it seems pretty self-explanatory, what is the meaning behind the name?
“Chosen Fate is James Stephens (lol)”
As a multi talented artist, we know that playing the piano is your secret weapon… does that mean you produce your own beats too?
Who are you top 5 musical inspirations? Dead or alive. No specific order.
“Stevie Wonder, James E. Stephens (Dad), Timberland, Pretty much everything I can get my hands on.”
Now, who is one person in the game right now that you just “have” to work with, and why?
“I would say I would love to work with a few people that I feel are similar to me and that would be: J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Rapsody, and Logic. These artists have all made positive songs in a way that I have found amazing.”
For those who haven’t listened to your new project, Come By Here, — what are 3 words to describe it?
“Inspiring, different, and educational.”
With that being said, what was the inspiration behind creating this project? What message are you trying to get across?
“Well, Come By Here, is an album from the people’s perspective meant to motivate us to do something with our lives and also to paint a picture of how we deal with one another to motivate change. And I named it “Come By Here” to inspire people to be better and to learn to love each other no matter the color of their skin.”
What is it all for? Be honest. Some people are about this “music life” for the fame and fortune, essentially trying to make a career out of it, which is understandable; but some use music solely for a release, and whatever manifests from that is just more so a blessing… —What does being a music artist mean to you?
“I love music and I believe that music is a tool to use for whatever you want to use it for whether it be good or bad and I choose to use it for good.”
What’s in store for Chosen Fate? What can we look forward to from you in 2019?
“I don’t know wait and see!”
So I guess we’ll wait and see… Stay tuned!

Also known as DJ Illinois, the versatile artist makes a smooth transition into rap and poetry as he delivers this double-entendre about love and relationships.

Definitely a new sound for IICON and we’re looking forward to hearing more!
