Introduce yourself to our readers! Let them know your name, where you’re from & the name of the project you’ve just dropped!
What’s going on man? My name is Chase Fetti out of New Jersey. I just dropped my project called Top of The Red fully produced by 38 Spesh. Out now on all Platforms so go check that out.
Chase – Your album Top of the Red has 11 tracks. Tell the Hip Hop Weekly readers a bit about the features and the vibe of this album.
Yeah- well for starters, I got a feature from 38 Spesh and a feature from Benny the Butcher. Oh shit how can I forget – Boldy does the intro on this album. Boldy, that’s my D Time player. I just been blessed to have been placed around these guys. No pressure really. The vibe – it’s funny because I just had this conversation with 38 Spesh the other day. We said ‘” There’s a million artists making music in the world like us except- we make music for guys like US.” The vibe- It’s that old school New York vibe feeling but like everything I do, I do it in my own way.

So Chase–The very first single to debut off Top of the Red is Track #8 “Own Pots” ft Benny the Butcher. Tell the readers why you picked that as your first single.
I mean first, shout out to my guy Benny. Who the fuck knew his album was gonna go number 1 and go crazy like that? But honestly, I just figured, ya know, Benny and Pots– he got the most traction and so it was just smart. Plus I knew that Own Pots was something the fans and people would love.
What exactly does Top of the Red mean? Is there a subliminal meaning behind name of the album?
(laughs) Good Morning! It means “I’m the Top of the Red.” I’m the top guy. Where I’m from I’m that guy. If we talking music- I’m the top one.
Chase you know I’m a lyric lover. I listened to the whole album from front to back and Interstate stuck out to me. The lyrics for Interstate are pretty emotional. You say:
“I saw my sister laying there in fear. The First time I saw my father drop a tear. A few years took another than a sucker took my brother”.
So- Is interstate based on a true story?
Oh Yeah, definitely based on a true story. Both of my older sisters passed from cancer. One sister was 36 and the other was 35. And one of my closest dudes – his man – actually I should day “quote unquote his man” shot him and killed him. Yeah based on a true story. I’m tired of that shit man.
So is it safe to say you wear your heart on your sleeve when you make music?
(Laughs) Nahhhh- I just go where the beat takes me man.
Chase you have worked with many legends. Who have you worked with in the past?
Asap Rocky, Flee Lord, Memphis Bleek, Prodigy, 38 Spesh, Grafh, Mephux, Trust Army, El Camino, Eto, Fred the Godson, Termanology, Roc Marciano , Conway , Boldy James , The Alchemist, Rick Hyde
Tell the readers how you came to connect with Griselda because you have a close relationship with them. You have songs out with them and even have been on tour with the guys
Honestly- Shout out to my man Reek- about 3-4 years ago he told me to reach out to his man Benny (the Butcher) in Buffalo. Then, Just so happens around 2017- 2018 this dude I know was opening for Griselda in Connecticut so I went to the show and met Benny formally. I’m sex, money, murder. Blood . One of my big homies from Trenton , NJ lives in ATL and Westside Gunn is his man- like his Man Man. So when I went out there to ATL- he introduced me to Wes. Now my man- Vinny Curry, shout out to him. He plays for the Philadelphia Eagles , well hit me one day and said “Yo- you ever heard of Griselda?” and I’m like “Yo- I been buying clothes from these guys for 2 years. I didn’t even know they made music.” So he said “Hit up my man Conway” and that’s how I met Con. I met all 3 of them on 3 separate occasions. Just through being around that’s how we linked. You know I did the tape with Flee- gotta tape with Boldy coming, Plates 2 with Rick Hyde. Shit me and Jay Worthy.
You have a close relationship with your daughter. How does she inspire you as an artist and a person?
Shit man- my daughter is my whole life for real. She just gave me something to look forward to and to live for. Before her I was real wreck less. And what’s crazy is she got the music gene. She loves music and loves being in the studio with me.
