21 Questions with D.A. of Chester French

You’ve heard of Chester French by now. If not, get off of my blog and go back to your game of bingo. Chester French is the newest act signed to the Neptunes’ Star Trak label. Their sound is a mix of dope and awesome inspired by talent which is hard to come by these days. You know you’re doing something right when Pharrell trusts you with complete creative control (Chester French wrote and produced their whole album). The guys have finished their masterpiece of an album and have completed mixes (mixed by super engineer, Neal “motherf%*%in” Pogue). In layman’s terms, the album is coming very soon. Be on the lookout for the lead single “She Loves Everybody”. 


Right now the duo are on serious grind mode doing back to back shows with N.E.R.D. & Common. I was able to catch the show at the Wiltern in L.A. (make sure you see it if you haven’t yet, you can view their tour dates here). Between shows, D.A. (Chester French lead vocalist) took some time out to answer FreshNerd’s crazy ass 21 question interview. Enjoy…..
