“The Chase” by Walt Arkain is Fire

This Shutesbury, Massachusetts-born artist is one who will be remembered. Walt Arkain, a producer, musician, and audio engineer who began his hip-hop career at the age of eleven, encourages all who come into contact with him to follow their passions. He is also known for discussing social issues through music, as he stands on music being a powerful way to address said topics.

Arkain recently dropped a song that goes by the name “The Chase”, it is with White Gold, a figure in music who has worked with the likes of Pusha T, DJ Khaled, Eminem, and Royce Da 5’9’’. With the bass and bars going crazy on both artists’ ends, it is definitely a recommendation for exercise or party playlists. Just by listening, you could tell that the meaning of the song is about pursuing goals and ambitions, and giving back to the world in a positive way. Arkain definitely is a great representation of those values, and that is why this song is very much worth your time, and the listen.

Arkain recalls Lil Wayne and Eminem as the first hip-hop artists he ever listened to as a child, and he was inspired by them. His family and friends are also huge inspirations to him, and they always push him to keep going. What distinguishes Arkain as an artist is his ability to consistently blend his lyrical abilities with the modern hip-hop/trap sound. He also produces and engineers his work, demonstrating the talent that lies behind the craft. When you listen to his music, you will notice that there is always meaningful content in his lyrics; it is something you can really take in. Arkain’s music creation process, he says, takes time. He first creates or finds beats and tries to get that flow before writing to it. Then he’ll record the vocals before mixing and mastering, and finally it’ll be ready for release. Arkain works best in calmer environments, but more upbeat sessions may help him get more done.

Arkain plans to roll out many new singles as the year goes on, and possibly drop an EP that will soon be in the works. Be sure to check his latest single out, “The Chase”, by him and White Gold. You will not regret it.
