The explosive music of THE CHIMPZ was born and developed from their everyday struggles in the streets of Los Angeles. The band released their single “California”, following with a self-titled EP which was released September 9th, 2014.

They are the NWA of Heavy Metal. I wouldn’t compare them to Korn, Limp Bizkit, or even the collaboration of Anthrax and Public Enemy (“Bring the Noise”). These guys are harder, rougher, and a lot more fun. They epitomize what I loved about late 1980’s/early 90’s West Coast Hip Hop/Rap scene. It’s all about their hood. Real stories, real lyrics, and a “F U…You Can’t Hold Me Down” attitude. When it comes to Rock – they go beyond it and they reach the “Heavy Metal” bar. I’ve seen tons of bands that fuse Hip Hop and Rock together. I like most of these bands. The Chimpz are unique and have created a new sub category under the massive tree of Rock.
