Brooklyn rapper and producer Chuck Strangers has delivered his latest project: the carefully crafted and expertly curated eight-track EP Too Afraid To Dance out via his own Sounds of Beverly imprint. Strangers dropped the collection after strong singles like “Regular Season” and “Luke Crib” showcased his reflective bars and ear for hypnotic, nostalgic 90s-inspired instrumentals. It’s his first body of work since his 2018 album Consumers Park.

“I’m just in a whole different mind state with only a couple years left in my 20’s,” Strangers told HYPEBEAST. “I’ve had time to mature and really look into who I am and what I want to put out there. With the Sounds of Beverly I’m literally being the change I want to see in the world and I couldn’t think of a more perfect manifesto than ‘Regular Season.’” Too Afraid To Dance was produced by Strangers as well as collaborators Graymatter and Shepard Sounds. The EP also boasts guest spots from some of New York City’s best underground lyricists currently active — KA, Caleb Giles and Navy Blue all shine throughout their respective features.

Chuck Strangers has been an active force in his city’s hip-hop renaissance since he helped cultivate Joey Bada$$ and Pro Era‘s sound dating back to the early 2010s. On Too Afraid To Dance, Strangers breaks through thanks to not only his production chops but his over-arching storytelling.
